Pattern Description: Wardrobe ensemble.

Pattern Sizing: Medium.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?It's the first time I used crosswise binding in a waist.
I haven't made skirts in a long time, I forgot how quickly they are finished
Fabric Used:Brocade. The seams ravel easily.Had to serge the edges after I cut and before I sewed the pieces together.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes

Conclusion: I made this skirt for the Pattern Stash Contest. I'll make the matching top another time. I'm glad I got this project started. It's been in the stash for a long time.
