Pattern Description:
Skirt with waistband pleats. Zip fastening. Various lengths.

Pattern Sizing:
A5 (6-14) I made size 8 and it fit a treat with no alterations!

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I made View C and it Absolutely did!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. Very clear and well illustrated instructions. Easy to follow

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Nothing to dislike. The variations of skirt on this pattern are good. I love the high-low (mullet) version.

Fabric Used:
Pale green and white polyester woven fabric that also has a shiny silver thread woven into it. Because my fabric is a light colour I lived it with Tricot.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Absolutely none to the fit. Size 8 fit perfectly and I also left the length as it is. I made no design changes, although as I used a very light colour fabric I added an A-line lining.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I really want to make this skirt again without the extended back. I made view C this time as I liked the short front, long back, as its different but I do think the shorter one will look even more amazing! I would definitely recommend it. Its easy and a good start for beginners.

Conclusion:
This is a great pattern, simple but effective. There is quite a bit of marking for the pleats obviously, and a lot of basting, but once the pleats are in, its zip, waistband and you're done!
