|Worn with Sewaholic Oakridge blouse|
I made mine in a fairly lightweight organic corduroy form organiccotton.biz in a teal colour which I bought a few years ago. It's ok, but I think I would go for a slightly heavier fabric the next time.

The pattern itself is very straightforward with great instructions as per all Liesl & Co patterns and the pockets give it more interest and, of course, are very practical.
The facing on the hem also gives a lovely neat finish and a little chance to use a co-ordinating fabric. The one I used is one of the Atelier Brunette rayon's which worked very well.
I was thinking of lengthening the skirt, as I thought it might be too short, but I made no adjustments at all and I think it's fine especially now in the autumn with thicker tights. It's been a surprisingly useful skirt (I wasn't sure to be honest, it maybe seemed a bit novelty) and even had a trip to Reykjavik earlier in September. So, all in all I am really pleased with it and will be aiming for a slightly heavier version for winter.
