zipped black skirt

you could probably tell i have a minor obsession with zippers. oh yes.

i finally got around to making this skirt. i've loved gina tricot's version of it with a silver zipper, but alas, i don't live in any Scandinavian country and am not in reach of it. so i made one... 

my first form fitting skirt! and i'm quite proud of it. elastic waists are nice, but they only create one silhouette and that gets boring after awhile.

tank: H&M
skirt: self made
shoes: old navy
sunglasses: vintage market

did you use a pattern for this and the transparent top or did you just sort of guess and check? they are fantastic. i want!
