I got this pattern complete with fabric and notions many months ago, cut out the pattern and promptly stuffed it in a box and forgot about it.  I finally pulled it out and actually sewed it together the other day; the longest part of making this skirt was letting it hang overnight to set the bias for the hem.  It was a breeze to put together, only a few hours work total.  The pattern was also true to size (by this I mean the measurements on the pattern envelope and the finished garment agreed).  It is fitted through the hips and flares at the hem.  I know there is a name for that shape, but I can't recall it at the moment.  I'm really pleased with how this skirt came out and I look forward to making more in different fabrics so I can wear them for all occasions.  (I think its officially too late in the season to wear brown wool now)
