Nice, easy pattern. I liked that I didn't need to print pattern pieces, just measurements and my rotary cutter and mat. I did not add the double ruffle so the skirt was a pretty quick to sew. I do wish it had more of an A line shape though.
I made this over the weekend for Easter (to coordinate with some ruffled skirts that I made for my girls). It was pretty simple to make following these instructions, although I would say that it would be better for someone with at least a bit of sewing experience rather than a beginner.
I had to increase the measurements for my size a bit - I just increased the width of each of the pieces accordingly.
A few things that I would have liked to have ... Instructions on which way to iron the seams to make things look best, the best way to finish the cut pieces when sewing without a serger (another pattern I bought on this site recommended sewing the edges with a zig-zag stitch before sewing together to help keep edges from unraveling).
I also added a simple lining using the same width and a length a bit shorter than the full length (that would be a nice addition to these instructions!). A tip I learned on another site for making ruffles that worked well for me with this skirt ... Set the stitch length on your machine as long as you can and adjust the tension to a much higher number than you usually use. When I did this, I didn't have to pull in the ruffles much at all to get them to fit!
