The texture is more visible on the back of the fabric.
I traced and muslined (is this even a word???) this skirt in a size 40 in October 2012 and then packed it in a little plastic baggy and there it stayed and stayed ... and stayed. When I got it out now it was a bit large, so made a 38 instead, but I could have perhaps gone down to a 36. It is still a little baggy around the hips - wow, being pear-shaped I never had to say that before - but it's a summer skirt, so it should probably be a little loose actually :-)
It's one of those patterns where I want to make at least another 5 right away ... hmm, maybe one with spots, and one plain one, and maybe a flowery summery one, and and and ... the possibilities are endless.
I think I might have my sewing mojo back :-)
