First off, I must say that I love Alexander Henry fabrics, and while I realize that technically they are quilting cottons, I will break the rules and use them for clothes. Besides, they're good quality cottons, right?  Wink

The design is mine, and it is pretty simple- I didn't even use a pattern. The pleats are sewn from the inside for a few inches, and over them, I appliqued the band.

The buttons are there as part of the opening, which is a bit complicated and I wouldn't use it again as it makes extra bulk around the waist. There are pockets which open up enough so that the waist of the skirt can fit over my hips, and the buttons make sure they stay in place while I wear the skirt. Unfortunately, the material I used for the pockets was too small, and as a result, the pockets are too small to be fully functional.

There is a button on the undermost layer of the pocket, a button hole in the top layer of the pocket, and a second buttonhole in the skirt itself. It all stays together, but as I said, it's a bit bulky. Not quite the stroke of genius I had hoped for. Tongue
