One thing that I don't love about this pattern is that you can't change the skirt length. The lining and the shell are sewed together at the bottom so in order to alter the hem you'd need to undo a lot of sewing. I got lucky that the length was all right for me, but I wouldn't mind if it were a bit shorter.
I used a Simply Silky print from Jo-Ann Fabrics. It was not super easy to work with; it was very slippery. For the lining I used a teal Tropical Punch fabric from Jo-Ann Fabrics.
