Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Oh, yes!! I was inspired by EveS's review

Were the instructions easy to follow?

yes, although I am soooo bad at reading them.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

The timeless-ness of a pleated skirt. They have always been in fashion, maybe not the highlight of fashion but always there depending on the fabrics used.

Fabric Used:A rayon silky from jo-anns.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:

none in the first skirt, but for the second skirt in denim I removed some of the pleats. denim skirt . For more on the changes see my blog

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

yes!! this spring I plan on sewing one inspired by edupraz's lovely eyelet skirt you just gotta love it in an eyelet for spring!!
