a new skirt

This skirt isn’t quite what I had in mind but it is pretty close, which is a miraculous thing seeing as I still know so little about sewing.  I wanted to recreate a skirt I saw for sale at petit bateau.  It’s fairly similar to the one I saw but more importantly a lot cheaper.

If I were to do it again, I would change the fabric and position of the pockets and cut the fabric a little differently, but all in all, I’m feeling pretty pleased with myself.  I learnt a lot making something this way without a pattern, it took up precious time and neurons but it’ was worth it.  Now what to do with the rest of the corduroy I bought?  I don’t know, I’m dying to make this for M though:
