free online Skirt Pattern and bought the fabric at JoAnn's for $6 per yard. The pattern does not come with pockets so I borrowed the pocket template from the Iris Shorts pattern by Colette Patterns. I cut 4 pocket pieces out and stitched each one 3" from the top of the skirt. There is an invisible zipper to install on the back of the skirt. There are also 4 darts, 2 in the front and 2 in the back. If you are unsure how to sew darts here is an excellent dart video tutorial. Overall, I am happy with my results. I saved money, it is tailored just for me and I have a little extra fabric left over for a cute Sew Spoiled Wristlet! Love it when a plan comes together.
