I had a feeling I was going to like this skirt when I saw the Liesl + Co Everyday Skirt pattern. I tend to buy fitted skirts because I feel like full skirts add too much bulk to my hips but the way this pattern is constructed prevents that. There is gathering in the front (attached to a flat waistband) and gathering in the back (with elastic so no closures are needed), but the side panels are flat. Also, there are pockets and I love pockets! I was determined not to buy new fabric until I knew if I liked the pattern so I made my first version from this quilting cotton I had in my stash. I think the print and color say "fall".
