Half size pattern drafting experience- A skirt

At the pattern cutting course in London we got to work with half size patterns at home - scaled to half size.
Seriously it was such a saver and it allowed me to work when the kids are awake, not having to wait until they sleep to get the entire dining table to myself without being disturbed.
This is something I could do watching tele.

 So here it is, I made a pattern myself of this skirt and also tried stitching it. Well the kids were asleep and I couldn’t use the sewing machine but my fingers were ithching to complete so I hand stitched it.
I’m so proud of it, I did show off in the class.

 At first when I started I couldn't even make out which way was top and which bottom when I started to sew but eventually managed.
