Pattern Description:
I made View B. This is a high-waist, knee length skirt with an inverted box pleat at center front and three small pleats on either side of it. Front hip pockets and a separate yoke.

Pattern Sizing:

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, until I reached the point where I had to attach the skirt to the yoke.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love the center front pleat, pockets and yoke. I am not big fan of the 3 tiny pleats on each back panel. I have no need for extra fabric in that area. The pleats look cute on the skirt front though.

Since it has a high waist, the pattern pieces for the yoke are curved. Luckily for me, the curve fit me perfectly and does make my waist look good.

Fabric Used:
Sew Classics 100% cotton bottomweight fabric from JoAnn.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Did not follow the frayed edge instructions for where the skirt bottom joins the yoke. Instead I covered the edge with a hongkong finish.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would sew it again, just without the pleats in the two back pieces of the skirt.

Nice pattern for a wardrobe basic without making it look boring. Lots of interesting details.

You did a beautiful job! :) You're right, their instructions for attaching yokes aren't easy to figure out.
