This lovely skirt pattern was lent to me by a friend. I used View 2, with a shaped waistband, back zip and no pockets.

It was an extremely easy skirt to make up, the instructions were simple and thorough, and that made it fun. One of those projects you just love doing. ;)
The fabric is a cotton/polyester sheet from Goodwill. I was fortunate enough to find a nice navy belt that exactly matched the sheet during the same trip. So the total for this skirt-and-belt combo comes to less than five dollars. :)
The waistband, since it's so wide and faced, acts almost like a waist cincher and is extremely flattering, especially when worn with the belt. I love this skirt. It's easy to wear, not too full, and it goes with practically anything. Definitely a favorite in my wardrobe. :) And I still have extra fabric, so I'm planning a matching blouse for a one-piece look!
