I haven't worked with wool fabric for a long time. My DIL brought her skirt material and lining from LA Fabrics in Toronto. Butterick pattern,4613, a straight skirt with the flounce. I had a few challenges with the invisible zip, and she had a few with the seams themselves, she hadn't done darts before. So cutting out slippery lining, learning about nap fabrics, how to press and all the other myriad of things long time sewers take for granted, was quite the learning curve. The finished skirt looked fabulous. Then there was enough left over for a vest.
