Isn't it fabulous? I think so! The fabric is actually curtain material which I bought on Tuesday. I came home from the shop and immediately washed it to take as much of the "curtain finish" off as I could. It's still a stiffer fabric than dress fabric would be - I wouldn't want to make a blouse out of it - but it's just perfect for a skirt.
The pattern is Butterick 4461 view C - the pinky one in this photo.
