I’ve loved this pattern since it was loaded onto the site. I love the flowing accordion-like movement of the pleats and the fit of the skirt. I added two darts in the back to fit me better and I made it without the pockets. It does sit a little lower on my hips than is probably flattering to me, but I think that’s user error.
The pattern directions were a little vague, but the pictures helped me fill in the gaps in my understanding.
I basted the pleated sections so that they held together while I was cutting/sewing them. I think it helped tremendously.
