This skirt has taken me a year and a half to finish. I bought the pattern as soon as I finished my sewing class at the end of 2012. It's View D from McCall's 6608. FIrst, I had to search for the fabric. It calls for almost 5 yards of 60-inch-wide fabric. Because I didn't want this skirt to cost a fortune, I had to look for something I liked that was also inexpensive. That took me until the middle of last year. This is a poly-rayon blend that was on clearance at Jo-Ann. But when I constructed it, I found out it was too sheer. So then I had to search for an inexpensive lining.
