I went and made myself some new fall skirts in a simple a-line shape with a side zipper. They sit between the waist and the hip and are very comfortable. I followed the same instructions I did when doing the bicycle skirt nixing the waistband. I seem to have lost/misplaced that green skirt which makes me very sad as I really loved and wore it a lot. It seemed to have gone missing right around moving time or maybe right after. Perhaps I will discover it one day. I do like a mystery like Nancy Drew. If only I had a clue to help me along.
