San Jose, Califo...
I used the Madison pattern here. It was pretty simple to make, except that i got pretty confused with the front part of the skirt. things didnt quite match up right — perhaps i did the dart with the pocket wrong. another downfall was that the zipper was on the side, so it was hard for me to balance the left and the right. if i were to sew this again, i will put the zipper in the back instead to make things easier for myself :) other than that, i am happy with the result, it looks nice with brown boots and leather belt!
