print skirt????

I have enough bottoms now for the SWAP, but bottoms are very hard to me to buy (unlike tops/jackets) so I may make some extra.
The large leaf print (see previous post) should have enough fabric for both a blouse and a skirt.
The fabric co-ordinates with 4 jackets I own so a skirt is worth doing even if not as part of the SWAP. They are dark green, dark bluey grey, chocolate brown RTW jackets and also the teal SWAP jacket. The dark green and dark bluey grey jackets are 'orphans' in need of co-ordinating bottoms so definitely a big plus to sew this skirt.

For beginners who want to do a SWAP taking a RTW jacket (tailored or casual) and making the other items to work with it might be a good approach.

I also have an orphan dark navy blue jacket and could not work out what to wear with it at all.
A rummage through one of my fabric boxes turned up three fabrics which could be made to co-ordinate, a herringbone weave (saying slouchy pants), a navy and blue print (maybe the gore skirt?) and a navy/cream/turquoise/blue print which would need to be sewn in a simple style skirt (and maybe blouse) the last two being distinctly summer weight projects.
