    I made this skirt (from the magazine) and it turned out cute. The photo above really doesn’t do it justice.

    The challenge is in the zipper placket construction and the single welt pockets. The welts were not as hard as I thought, but the directions for the zipper placket were a bit frustrating. The magazine instructions were confusing because some pieces were specified as having the seam allowances included in the measurements. This turned out to be not true for the placket components. So—be sure to add the seam allowances to them. I hope that this ambiguity was corrected for the online instructions…

    Otherwise, it was a good project, and a useful, practical skirt. Also, the diagonal pleats are rather flattering—so I recommend it.
