This A-Line skirt was my first real dressmaking project. I first got a taste for dressmaking when I came across a fantastic website called Tilly and the buttons. On here, there was a link to a video which showed you how to make an elasticated skirt. It looked so easy, so that very day, I went out to get my material and supplies, and made the skirt within an hour. It was fantastic and I loved that I had made it. Take a look at my Instagram page, you can see a picture of it there. I knew that my second dressmaking project should be something a little more complex. I wanted a fitted skirt which included a zip. Why are zips so scary?
