I like all the skirts, except the jeans remake. can’t it be made without the zipper panel part? It seems one could use a wide strip of another jean’s leg in the center. Or get a very large pair of jeans at the thrift store that could be cut to fit w/out that flap. Yuk.
I have always loved circle skirts since I was a kid. Dirndle are ok, but on us chubbies it just adds bulk…sigh

    It’s a tight fit skirt, so it needs a zipper. If you make it out of larger jean’s you would need to add a zipper at the side seam.
    I think you can make it work
