This skirt was as easy and satisfying to make as the last one. I did try to insert a slot zipper, but quite frankly, that was a debacle. I ripped it out and inserted an invisible zip. The top stitching is all in red, as is the zipper, and as soon as I find some buttons I like, I will add the tabs and buttons to the waistband. Or not. I'm not sure I'll ever tuck anything in with this one.
