The second was a cute skirt that I still wear, with a yoke waist band (is that what it's called?), invisible side zip (for which I consulted a free Craftsy tutorial) and cute inserted panel of Echino selvages. Just to prove that it's completely wearable in public, here's a pick of me sporting it in London and the 2013 Fat Quarterly Retreat!

I haven't got much of a waist, so I do prefer a flat front skirt because gathers just don't do me any favours. Here's my next clothing challenge: The Maude Skirt by Lazy Seamstress (find the pattern at FabricSpark! by clicking the link). Sounds like the perfect pattern for me! Plus, those pockets looks fab.
I'm not sure when I'll get around to actually making a muslin, but I'd love to have this ready for my trip to Quilt Canada in June! I've got some lovely chambray purchased at Drygoods Design last year that should do the trick.
