I do wish the instructions were a little more in depth, but overall, I really love this skirt, especially that it's lace and still has that amount of volume.

The instructions are basic but I feel could use a bit more detail. They are no trouble with those experienced in making skirts but beginners will be looking for more. You have to really carefully at the photos to see the detail. The addition of a lining is a good plus but it does not have enough detail for that as well, especially in handling the zipper. Good idea and lovely skirt though.
