A Neutral Skirt
I used up some more of that Khaki Kona Cotton to make a neutral-colored pencil skirt with this pattern.
Upon un-foldng the tissue, I discovered that this pattern is really no more "instant" than any of my other pencil skirt patterns. (Three seams, zipper up the back.) On the plus side, you only need one yard of 54" wide fabric for view A & B. Also included was a separate front tissue for View C, which is a pretty interesting faux wrap style. I would have made that version but my lining fabric wasn't quite wide enough.
View A is fine, though. I really needed a neutral pencil skirt and I think I'll get quite a lot of wear out of it. It went together snippety-snip with no major issues of any kind.
That strange light/shadow on my hip/bum is a reflection from the bread-box. That'll teach me to take pictures in the evening when there isn't enough light!
