The cotton fabric is an Anna Maria Horner design. I got it at Fancy Tiger Crafts at the end of vacation. It comes in other fantastic colors, but I bought another fabric with similar colors. I'll use the scraps from this one on accents for a dress I have planned.
I cut this on the crossgrain and love how the stripes land on the pleats and meet at the side and center back seams.
I cut size 10, and my only fit adjustment was sewing the back seam to the edge of the zipper tape, which is a little smaller than the standard 5/8-inch seam allowance. As I was trying the skirt on, I got a little concerned about the waistband sitting too high and the hem hitting a little too short, so I used that center back seam to make it a tiny bit bigger (which makes it sit a little lower).
