I modified the linda pattern to make a full pleated skirt. I finished with a blind hem and black binding strips along the seams. I also have a side zipper closure and in the other side seal I added an inseam pocket. Overall I am very happy with the patterns, but the fabric itself is pretty stiff, wrinkles very easily, and doesn’t drape as I would have liked.
