Pattern Description:Misses' skirt has side zipper and comes in four lengths. Make a shorter skater skirt, a medium or longer length gore skirt or a bohemian skirt with a shark bite hem. Get creative adding fringe, trim & buttons.

Pattern Sizing:Sizes 6-22. I made a size 12.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?I sewed view B. The shape is the same, I made my own details.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes, simple instructions. I didn't use them but I looked through them. Only a page and a half, this is a very easy pattern.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love that it's quick, easy, and has a cute shape. The waistband fit spot on, I didn't have to alter it.

Fabric Used: Mint colored Kona cotton.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I didn't alter the fit of the pattern at all, but I added my own tab, chain and pocket details with rivets. I also made the hem a bit deeper than the pattern called for so it is shorter.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will definitely sew it again. It's a cute skirt style that is on trend. It's one of those projects you can complete quickly and feel good about how accomplished you are, haha! It is also very easy to sew, it only has 4 pattern pieces. (View F has an additional fringe piece.) It would be good for beginning sewists.

Conclusion: Super cute, quick and easy. I love it. You can see more pics and details about the style elements I added here on my blog post.
