Yes, I was hungry when I wrote this post;)

Firstly, Chocolate Ginger sounds more appetizing than Brown Skirt!
And secondly, Latte is so much more tastier than Light Brown Bias!!

So, here we have my third Colette Ginger Skirt - certainly not my last, but for now it will take a back seat to some other projects.

I just love this skirt with its simple lines, not to mention how easy it was to whip up.

This was a total stash busting project.
I have about a gazillion zippers, so finding one to match was not a hard task.
Plenty of interfacing for the waistband - check!
The fabric was leftover from some trousers I made a few years back.
Oh, and the latte! I finished the hem in this pale brown bias which I hope lasts as long as the skirt - I have no idea how long I've had it (I've been sewing for over 30 years, you know!) and it felt a bit cardboard-y when I was slip stitching it..eek, it may disintegrate on me!

The innards...
The pattern doesn't call for lining, but I do like to line most of my garments though as I feel they hang a lot nicer.

My invisible zipper (which doesn't look so invisible when done up - darn it! - might work on that a bit more).

And the waistband top stitching - I like it when the innards look as nice as the outside!

Off to Busselton and Margaret River for a few days, so enjoy the rest of the week.
