Pattern Description:A high waist skirt with a button down front.

Pattern Sizing: Small

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes minus the pockets that I did not add.

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes! This was my first Megan Nielsen pattern and I'm now in love with her patterns. The directions where simple and easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the button down front and I love that the skirt sits at my natural waist. While I didn't add pockets to this skirt I do have another navy corduroy skirt from this pattern that has the pockets and I love them!

Fabric Used:Cotton fabric with a scarf print.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Because of the scarf print fabric I used I left out the pockets, I just didn't feel like it would work with this print. I also lined the skirt with a posh lining. I also cut the main skirt piece as one so as to not break up the lovely print of the fabric.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes! I've made two of these skirts and they are rather addictive! I've got plans to make two more.

Conclusion: Just a great pattern all around! A must have pattern.

I've been eyeing off this pattern for a while. I think your review has made me succumb.
