I can't believe I'm saying this but I miss winter and fall. I miss the color of leaves changing in the fall, sweaters, scarves, gloves, coats and especially boots.
On my way home from work today, I decided to take the scenic route, along the beach.
It was 58 degrees, which is winter weather for Floridians. Northeastern birds (tourists) wore shorts and t-shirts. True Floridians wore coats with scarves and snow boarding boots. I couldn't stop laughing.
I cut a size 18 but it was enormous on me. I am still working on mastering the art of pattern sizing. More on that later. I removed 2 inches from the width. This skirt has an elastic waistband and a drawstring.

Yes, for the most part.

Very easy pattern to follow
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
There's nothing to dislike about the pattern.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I followed the pattern instructions. Instead of side pockets I made a front pocket. It came out extra cute.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I will probably make one this summer in a like cotton. I might make it with side pockets or even with the front pocket like this one.
I Wanted to recreate a skirt I owned when I was a teenager. Mission accomplished!!! The fleece made for a great skirt in 50 degree weather (which is freezing for South Florida. If it gets cold again. I might wear this skirt with a pair of boots and a leather jacket. This skirt offers a lot of options. I absolutely love it!
