This looks quite nice--I like the pleated inset in back. Hope the next version works a little better.

Hi, I really like how you did the lining...thanks for sharing your idea, especially showing clear explanatory photos! I noticed on your blog that others have commented re: sewing corduroy and I'll add my experience. I made a no waistband simple A-line skirt out of corduroy and yes it was strangely stretched to fitting looser than I expected, which was fine with me for a comfortable casual work skirt and I also biked to work in it, using it a lot. (I ironed carefully on the wrong side of the corduroy, having placed a thick towel on the ironing board throughout the sewing process.) Then when I made the exact same skirt pattern, cutting out an unknown type of fabric, when I tried it on, mid-construction (since I had the unexpected looseness of the 1st), I realized, whoops this is strange, it fits somewhat tighter than the corduroy...so I ripped out my seams (hadn't done the top facing yet, so not too onerous) and took out the seams 1/8" (giving me an extra total of 1/2" and the fit was good (not at all as loose as the corduroy though). Anyways, I learned a lesson ... since I thought whoops maybe when I cut them out, my accuracy was different on the 2 skirts, or had I stay-stitched the corduroy and stretched it out inadvertently... were my questions... the lessons I learned were stay stitch without stretching, make sure the seams have enough extra room to adjust, try on during curing construction...baste next time...since it was such a pain to rip out my almost invisible tight stitches (even realizing to try it on before the facing, I was still a bit over confident after having sewn the earlier corduroy skirt, which sewed up looser). Back to your skirt :), I'm glad that despite the issues you've had, you still recommend it. Thanks again for sharing.
