Pattern Description: pencil skirt

Pattern Sizing: I should be a 40, but blending down to a 36 at the waist

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't need them, but they didn't look too bad

- I took 12cm off the length (I'm 5'3", not a supermodel)
- I fully lined it using the same pattern pieces, instead of using facings (which never lie properly)
- I used a woven instead of the recommended stretch, so I cut out 1" seams to compensate for the lack of stretch. I didn't need them though, the cut is good for wovens

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? it's a simple, quick skirt that doesn't use too much fabric

Fabric Used: less than a metre of camouflage in a blue colourway: cotton denim weight
