Not bad, easy to alter for length Review by Christienne
Rating

The pattern is simple enough. The skirt comes out a little heavy if using regular quilting type broadcloth. The waistband has an error of a missing set of notches. The "wrap" is from side seam to side seam across the front - a little too much in my opinion. Also makes it impossible to cinch tighter, only looser.

The instructions are clear enough if you are an experienced sewer. I was teaching 3 friends to sew with this pattern and without pictures or diagrams in the instructions, they would not have been able to do it without my help. Since it is a download and print out item, why not give more instructions and use images? It costs you nothing.
