I've never really COMPLETELY understood how to sew zippers so I've stuck with elastic for the past few years when it comes to skirts.
BUT today, I got pretty...into it. I NEEDED this skirt, not WANTED, NEEDED it. So, I got the fabric out and started.
I also taught myself (easy peasy!)how to do darts. I had to put 4 of them in to make it fit and now it fits like a dream and I am so excited.
