I used Simplicity 1717, which is a nice, basic a-line skirt that is part of Simplicity's Amazing Fit series. The only modification I made was the red piping around the patch pockets. The fabric is a stretchy denim that I bought as a remnant for $5 a long time ago. I have some ideas for more tweaks to this pattern, so maybe there will be some more skirts in the future.

|Some very big patch pockets with pre-fab piping.|
|And finally, the waistband facing using some American Jane Pezzy print -- scraps from the boys' pajamas.|
