Susan, you might be able to change the pockets without re-sewing. Fake suede is poly, which doesn't take a home dye. Your thread is probably poly too. You could dye a swatch of your suede and pocket lining in the wash. If you like the results you could try it on the whole skirt. Re-sewing is cheaper and probably less worrisome, though!

Beautiful skirt Susan. Another good KS pattern to try.

Thanks for the tip on the felled hems. I have this pattern also, and can't wait to sew it up!

Looks great! Nice review. I may even have this fabric. I purchased brown suede like fabric from Hancocks to make a jacket that now I don't think I want to make it up with the fabric. Looks good as a skirt.

What a nice skirt! It really looks great with the top, too.

Oops, I forgot to add that what I liked about the pattern was the topstitching which I also thought would be slimming. Plus with my waist/hips I do much better with shaped waists like this that don't have bands, and this waist looks flattering.

Yay! Thanks for reviewing this! I just bought this pattern on Friday for casual spring/summer skirt.
