This tested my patience but it wasn't the pattern's fault! I think it's a stylish pattern and I'd like to make many of them!
The tricky thing was using a thick wool and underlining it. I was afraid it would make me look super bulky.... but in the end I think it's okay. I hope!

I'll definitely make another, and I'm sure it'll be easier.
I do recommend this pattern, though I had to make many fitting changes based on my figure. (full butt adjustment mainly!!)

I like your skirt better then the one on the pattern envelope. Not crazy about those buttons..I think it looks really good.
