I made a Pencil Skirt!

Last weekend - I was on vacation.  So, I had the opportunity to do some sewing!  Oh, yeah!  The only real problem is that I've made a lot of bottoms (1 dress, 4 skirts & 2 pants), but ZERO tops.  I gotta fix that!

In addition to the red pants, I made a Pencil Skirt! And, it is so, so cute! 

Here's the official Pattern Review:

Pattern Description: Mimi G's Pencil Skirt / Free Tutorial

Pattern Sizing:
I made this based on my hip measurement.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it does.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were super easy & it's a project that I was able to complete in about 3 hours (start to finish).

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Loved everything!

Fabric Used:
Rayon Challis print from / it was on sale for about $3.99 per yard - 1 yard of 45 inch.
