Fabric: A total of 2 yards of Robert Kaufman Cotton Lawn Print for both, and 2 yards of Organic White Cotton for the lining on the skirt (but only used half of the width of the yardage, left over from this skirt).
Alterations: The only change I made on the skirt was to not hem the lining. I opted for just finishing the bottom edge of the lining with a 3TO stitch.
On the bag, I used a craft weight sew-in interfacing for the entire bag - no timtex. I changed the closure a bit and did not use a ribbon, but created a loop from the fabric. This loop was attaced to the bag (in the same manner as the handles) before attaching the lining so that it was in the seam. This allowed me to just use one button (kindly gifted by Cora). On the handles, I cut the interfacing to fit the folded fabric to have just a single layer. I was afraid that if I used interfacing the same width as the pattern piece for the handle that it would too thick and difficult to sew. The single layer worked just fine and is holding up well.
Cost: The fabric was $7.75/yard. The lining was $5/yard, but I only used about half of the width so I definitely have enough for another skirt lining. Both patterns, the lining and interfacing for the bag, and thread are from the stash. The zipper was $0.60. Total for skirt and bag - $21.10.
Impressions: Kaufman's fashion prints are so much fun! Another fabulous skirt to love, and a matching handbag to boot. I hope to enter this into U-handblog's Amy Butler contest for the month of September. Wish me luck!
