This is fast becoming my favorite A-Line skirt! Everything about this pattern is lovely: the pleats, the lining, the yoke, and it’s FREE to boot!
I modified the yoke waistband slightly to fit by adding more curvature to the top-back waistband but also took out some of the curvature to the lower-back waistband. Otherwise I made no other modifications to the pattern, besides adding in some stabilization to the yoke and zipper area.

Navy Wool Flannel (light to medium weight), grey bemberg lining, Horsehair canvas for the yoke, stay tape for the waistband, Silk Organza for invisible zipper stabilization
