This is the skirt I started a few days ago.  I was going for the one that's on the model.  It's the first thing I've sewn for myself, besides pajama pants.  I'm stuck at halfway through the pattern because I don't understand the instructions.  I tried on the skirt and it's too tight around the hips and the waist is about five inches too small.  I chose the size four, thinking that's about the size I wear in store-bought clothes, and didn't pay attention to the size in inches on the back of the pattern.  I guess I should have trusted the pattern more.  Oh, well.  This is going in hibernation for now until I either lose five inches off my waist or have the desire to start over again.
