This skirt taught me how to avoid some rather elementary mistakes in the future. It could have been finished in a couple of hours, as it is a relatively easy pattern, consisting of 8 skirt panels and 2 pockets. I used French seams, a faced hem and fabric covered snap-fasteners instead of the buttons suggested by the pattern. I am rather pleased with the results, although the hemline is still far from perfect.
