Pattern Description: A-line skirt in two lengths, with curved pockets. Closes at centre back with an invisible zipper.

Pattern Sizing:34-44

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?I've made similar skirts before, so I didn't really pay close attention. A quick read through though tells me that the instructions are sound, and easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?This is exactly the kind of basic skirt that I would wear on a regular basis. Very wearable. Easy to dress up or down.

Fabric Used:Cotton, with cotton lawn remnants for the waistband facings and pocket linings.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 9cm to bring the length to 65cm, or just over my knees, my preferred length. Apart from that nothing. The draft was very good, with a sensible amount of ease!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?This is another wearable design from MariaDenmark, and I will definitely sew this again in the future. Check it out!

Nice skirt. I like the photos of the contrasting waist facing and pocket linings on your blog.:)
