Diva, I see that it looks blue - it was SUPPOSED to be a cool grey denim, but I have a hard time picturing how a fabric will look as a particular garment. Oh well. Thanks for the zipper tip. And MaryT - thanks for the compliment. Sometimes I get too confident and think I can do more complicated stuff. But I figure I'll never expand my knowledge if I don't give new stuff a try!

I think you did really well with this. I drop into the "fewer complications" mode of sewing quite often myself.

Sometimes skirts can be deceiving - they look simple until you start to sew them and realize how many different steps and techniques there are. I hear you on the instructions that jump around! Very frustrating and especially so for a beginner. Sandra Betzina has some good zipper techniques in her book, Power Sewing. She uses lots of pictures to illustrate. By the way, your fabric looks blue in the picture!
