Pattern 01: Claudia Skirt - Fabric

I went fabric shopping today, because I bought my first pattern and was super excited to finally start on it. Right now the two fabrics are in the washing machine and I hope that I've done everything right with them. I'm so clueless when it comes to fabrics, there are so many different ones and I don't know yet how they will behave and if I picked the right one for the project.

The first pattern I'm going to try my hands on is the Claudia Skirt by Angela Osborn.

I couldn't find a yellow/orange fabric as pictured in the illustration (which would've been great), so I went with a safe dark blue one, and a striped one for the lining.

As I'm an absolute beginner, there are a lot of new things I have to learn to make the skirt:
1.pleats! (So pretty!)
2.gathering fabric
3. invisible zipper
4. adding the waistband (which looks super confusing) and the lining of course

All of these are probably totally easy for most of you but I never done it, so I don't know how it will go. I could skip the lining, but I want to try it too and it think it looks really neat and finished with one. Oh my...I will totally mess it up, I'm so sure of it!
