Pattern Description:
Short skirt with pockets and elastic waistband.

Pattern Sizing:
European sizes 34-46. I made my regular size 36.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
It certainly looked like the drawing when finished. Unfortunately, the skirt is not very visible on the photos inside the magazine.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I did not read them since they are in Dutch, which I don't speak. But with such an easy skirt, it is not really necessary to read the instructions anyway.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that it is so comfortable because of the elastic waist. However, this also makes combining the skirt quite difficult as the waist is too bulky to tuck a shirt in and with a slim shirt it is very visible.

Fabric Used:
Printed cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made no changes to the pattern.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would not sew it again as it is not really my style. I can highly recommend this pattern to beginners.

Conclusion:
Quick and easy skirt that is very comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, the elastic waist is too bulky for my taste. More details can be found on my blog
