This skirt only took 90 minutes from cutting to hemming, was finished on December 30 and worn on December 31.
The pattern is the same as for the blue skirt I made the other day (Butterick 6841) and the fabric is from Tessuti Fabrics in Surry Hills. I fell in love the moment I laid eyes on the bolt. The Mister, sitting comfortably on the Tessuti-provided sofa asked "but what top will go with that?". Silly boy. Any top goes with it. Red, maroon, white, black. Here I'm wearing Amanda with it, but I've been busy refashioning some bloody awful peasant tops I bought in Autograph back in spring. (I think I was desperate at the time, not being able to find any tops at all. So now I have three tops in different colours, thankfully all taken up and nipped in and now wearable and comfortable and a little more flattering.)
So now I have three skirts made and a dress cut out (and hopefully it will be made by the end of today). I'm working furiously through my very sizeable fabric stash because, well, I bought some more fabric in the Tessuti's sale, and the parcel will be arriving in the next couple of days. Oops.
