Pattern Description: 
Skirt with pockets
Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
On the whole yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, but I added lining, so I did not follow them by the letter.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the pockets, easy to make. On the other hand, the fabric is a bit too busy for the pockets... sigh...

Fabric Used:
Some polysomething weave. The fibers were very loose. tending to live their own live, in any direction. The fabric was so wild that it frayed at a simple eye contact... But I tamed it, at least I think I did 

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Kept the size at it was, took the shorter version and added about an inch in length, to feel comfortable.
Added a lining. I cut it from the same pattern, just glued the pockets to the front.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Good basic piece. I will sew it again, in another fabric.

Took one day. Looks good. perfect for a weekend spent sewing.
