I love this skirt! Mum bought this fabric in the 1980s and only now have I turned it from Impromptu-tablecloth to 1940s-style pencil skirt!

I love it!  Are the stripes on the diagonal, or did you cut the panels on the bias?

This turned out great. I love that color too!

Thanks! I was very careful when sewing this so my hems and seams are really neat - precious fabric! The stripes were on the diagonal, I cut one front and one back on the grain, then turned the pattern pieces 90deg to cut the other front and back. The fabric has no stretch so this worked. :)
