This is the best pattern! My granddaughter needed exactly this for a school uniform, but I noticed in the promo pictures of her school that the girls were all wearing leggings or tights under their skirts, or, for those that didn't, they were dangerously close to showing a little too much in different poses, just being active girls. I wanted my granddaughter to have a skort, plus I needed it to have an adjustable waist because I live quite a distance away from her and just can't get up-to-date accurate waist measurements for her. I am also a fairly inexperienced sewer and need clear instructions. This wonderful pattern fit the bill on all counts! I also learned several time-saving sewing tips which I have applied to other designer's patterns because the sewing techniques and order of sewing taught in this pattern just makes more sense. The adjustable waistband is so easy and presents as a very professional result. In fact, I have printed out an extra copy of the waistband and keep it in a page protector near my sewing machine and I use it for almost every waistband that I sew for both my granddaughter and grandson. And the technique for doing the pleats easily and accurately is awesome! I have made several of these skorts for my granddaughter. It is a fast, easy, fun sew. I highly recommend it!!!

I made this in a printed cotton for a pumpkin patch trip and paired it with the Little Gentleman's Vest (sized down to fit a girl) and I was so happy with results. The skirt is so easy and came together in about an hour, even with the extra steps to press all the pleats. Directions are easy to follow and the fit was true to measurements provided.

I love love how the final skort looked. The adjustable waistband is genius, with a great fit and clean finish. The sizing, materials, pictures and introduction were perfect. The reason I gave 4 stars is that certain parts of the directions and/or pictures for sewing were unclear for me, such as where to sew the pleats. I also think the waistband directions were difficult and I ended up coming with my own method for sewing it. Overall a great pattern but if you need more detailed instructions like I did, I recommend reading through directions very well and making sure you understand them prior to sewing.

I have 3 girls who have to wear uniforms and these are a hit with all three. I have made them in corduroy, suiting, and quilting cotton. Will be a staple in the wardrobe from now on. Thank you Amy for simplicity and style with your patterns!!

Amy has done it again! This wonderful pattern is easy to follow and sews up quickly. The pleated front gives this little skirt a classic look with the ease and comfort of an elastic waistband for easy dressing. I highly recommend it!
