Budra Flared skirt

Pattern Description:
Simply skirted
This short skirt of comfortable pin-waled corduroy sports jeans styling with flat-felled seams, slanted front pockets, and seat pockets. A semi-circular panel set into the back adds shape and room to move.
Pattern Sizing:
34_42 I made 40
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, completely
Were the instructions easy to follow?
NO! The slanted front pockets were difficult for me. I read the explanations in Burda. Total Blank. I retrieved my old sewing book and started practicing. Well, the first pocket would not open :-) The second was better and the third was OK. Then I reread Burda instructions, almost the same as in my book, but my book had pictures to go with...
The zipper is not well detailed either.
The circular panel is very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the circular panel, and the casual yet girlie look.
Fabric Used:
Stech denim
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yss I will, this is the urban version, a bush version is under way.
Nice pattern if you know how to sew the pockets.

Love the skirt. I may use this pattern for a piece of denim I originally bought to make jeans with (gone off the idea).
