Sewing Olympics: 5 Garment Challenge - the second completed garment

I've had a really good run with my second garment.  This is made from the textured tweedy fabric of unknown fibre content bought from a discount fabric shop in NW England. It has a dark brown background and orange and ivory threads woven in randomly. I love the way this style plays with the grain of the fabric.
This is another TNT pattern though not one I've made for a little while this is a flared bias cut skirt made from 3 shaped panels.
Prima is a UK women's magazine which contains a simple sewing pattern for subscribers. Because they are simple patterns they are often really quick to make up and I save them all.
This pattern is from September 2005, so ideal for an Autumn collection.

You are whipping these Olympic garments up faster than they are winning races!!! And yours are all gold-medal deserving...

This is just what I've been looking for in a pattern for a skirt I have in mind. Do you know if it's possible to get the Prima issue/pattern or the USA?

Love your blog. Thanks so much.
