A Quick Skirt

After completing the dress from S3874, I decided to sew up the skirt from B3037. I've had this pattern for a long time and have used it a lot. It's still available according to the Butterick site.
Pattern Description: Misses/Misses' petite top, skirt and scarf
Pattern Sizing: 14-16-18
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I'm sure they are but I didn't use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's easy and quick
Fabric used: Lightweight linen print from Joann Fabrics and I lined the skirt.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None except I just cut it a little shorter than the pattern calls for.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes & Yes
Conclusion: I will use this again and again for a quick skirt project. I think it took maybe an hour to sew this. (if that)

I really like your new skirt. The print is so cheery. I've had that patter for some time and might have to give it a try.

I love the bright vibrant colors in your skirt. It is cheery!
I can't tell, does the skirt have an elasticized waistband? I'm all for a skirt that's only gonna tale about an hour and look this good. :)

Alethia, yes the skirt has an elastic waist. Sorry I forgot to mention that.

Love the floral print fabric that you chose for the skirt! I have that pattern too!
