I don't wear dresses and skirts very much - I've just always been a pants kind of person. And I can't remember what prompted me to buy the Monica skirt pattern (5 out of 4 Patterns) - I probably saw someone on Instagram wearing one and got intrigued.
The skirt pictured on the cover of the pattern is the maxi version and it is so beautiful, I decided right then and there to buy it. I don't really wear maxi skirts in the winter months - just too impractical with the snow and the slush everywhere but I thought I could make a version for the summer.
To see if this kind of skirt would actually look good on me, I decided to make it up in the knee-length version first. If it was successful, I could wear it during the colder months with tights.

Besides the really poor choice of fabric, I really like my skirt! Thanks to the knit fabric, the waistband is really comfortable and there is a lot of ease at the hips.
The pleats are a really nice design feature but I never wear tops tucked-in so you don't really see them very well.
