Sewing project : Simplicity B5613

Pattern Description: 

Slightly flared, above mid-knee length skirts A,B,C,D have back zipper and waistline variations. A,B: front and back gathers, side seam pockets, waistband and self-sash. B: border prints. C,D: front and back pleats and self-faced yoke, upper edge of yoke falls at waistline. D: lined lower section with gathered bubble hem.
Pattern Sizing:

Sz 6-22. I chose sz 6.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Yes it did but with the sash.
Were the instructions easy to follow?

Yes, very easy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

There is nothing I do not like about the pattern. Just that I think this skirt does not flatter my body shape.
Fabric Used:

Slippery fabric. I think it is silk satin.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I chose view B. Sewed in an invisible zipper and didn't sew the sash.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

No, I don't think so!

This is a lovely pattern and it's great for a beginner. If you have a pear shaped body, I don't think this pattern is for you. It will make you look bigger in the hips and usual.

Thanks for coming by.
