This is a fairly simple skirt to sew and makes a nice display of the fun fabric. Or it would have been very easy to sew if I had remembered I always need to adjust the waist before I finish the waistband. Usually I do this by adding elastic, but this waistband does not want to be crumpled up with elastic. So I had to unpick all the layers at the side seams, take in, and restitch - definitely worth doing, though.
I centered a skirt zipper from my zipper box, instead of using an invisible. I thought the zipper/waistband method was interesting. When I first read the instructions, I thought, "That's crazy and would never work." But it does work after all.
2. Before connecting the waistband and waistband facing at the top, stitch the facing's two center back seams to the back side of the zipper tape, which you have flipped out.
4. Trim and flip right side out.
