    I’ve finally made this skirt up! It’s a really good pattern and I highly recommend it. I’m wearing the skirt right now and it’s really comfortable. I thought that a pencil skirt on a bigger figure may not turn out to well but I am very impressed.

    A few tips/notes/etc: *The pattern would benefit from some more diagrams, particularly when describing how to do the flap at the back. I gave up and just did my own thing; *The pleats were a bit fiddly (of course) and I sewed them along the fold lines to keep in place but still give some movement. I would have preferred to make up some pleated fabric, overlay the upper side piece and cut the right size from that; *And on a note with the side pieces, a good variation would be to use a feature fabric instead of the pleats; *other variations that may be good are belt loops and some welted pockets on the back; *I thought that I would need to alter the pattern a little to accommodate my very “generous” hips, but it was not necessary, especially as I made the pattern up in a stretch cotton drill.
