I love the Barcelona skirt pattern - I made three of them last year. I have a waist size of 28, and the medium fit perfectly, without any adjustments. I adapted the pattern slightly in the following ways:
1) I moved the zipper from the back to the side (I hate sitting/leaning back against a zipper). This pattern forced me to perfect my invisible zipper skills - a very good thing.
2) I cut a very narrow waistband (maybe 1/2 wide, finished), as I feel it sits better on my middle.
I have not tried the tiered skirt or apron yet - one of these days!
