    Wow, nice skirt! 👍🏽 What fabric is that exactly???…some type of suiting fabric? I’d really appreciate your answer 😊

      Hi Juss! I used a fabric from the suiting isle at JoAnn. I don’t remember what the fiber content was, but it’s sort of a silky, mid-weight, and it feels like polyester. I hope that helps! 🙂

    From my waist to my ankle is 40 inches so I’m with you in not being able to buy skirts and have them the right length. I also have trouble with premade things not making it over my hips (I’ve had 2 kids) so for the last 2 years I’ve been stuck in super stretchy things and they still don’t fit right. I love that you did a way to make this work Thank you so much. You have saved me from never being able to wear a skirt or dress again

      That makes me SO happy Anna and it’s what I LOVE to hear!! I hope you can make a few skirts for yourself that you can feel good in! I plan on making another skirt this summer with an elastic waistband and I think that will be really comfortable too.

      Thank you so much! I noticed you didn’t say anything about zipper allowance. How do you insert a zipper and still have skirt fit your waist if no extra zipper allowance is added? I’m not so clear on that. 🙁

        You know what, I didn’t actually add a zipper allowance…Haha! I was so new at sewing when I posted this tutorial that I didn’t even think about that. You would probably want to add an extra inch so that you had room to do a 1/2″ seam allowance for the zipper. I hope that helps!
