Very simple to make and very easy to wear. I shortened the hem about 10 cm, and also the waist height.

      Thank you! The pattern for this skirt is very high waisted. I lowered the waist line around 8 cm to have it in the natural waist, otherwise it was very uncomfortable for me.

    I made mine with a plain back – no pleats, so I had to make my own pattern for the back. I just cut out the front and sewed the pleats and then laid that piece on the fabric to make the back – I just made it a tiny bit wider. I didn’t need the zipper either. I will try to post a pic later

      I’d like to see it!
      Plain back, such a good idea to avoid the flatten pleats after sitting down.

    What does the back look like? Does it have the starburst too? Is there no zipper? I just bought the pattern, and am not a very experienced sewer and I am a bit confused…..

      Hi, Lindsay! The back and the front are two identical pieces. This skirt is a good choice for a beginner, only two pannels, no zipper, flattering result. Curious to see your version!
