My first garment (skirt)

Today, I finished my first-ever garment! I never wear skirts, but I'm willing to convert just to allow me to make more simple garments for myself, haha. And I actually quite like this skirt. The class by Brett Bara is really easy to follow and a great project for a beginner like me. I'm not sure whether I took my measurements wrong, cut/sewed too inaccurately or whether the pattern was on the big side, but the skirt turned out too large for me, so it hangs loosely on my hips. I already noticed that during sewing, but I was too lazy to adjust too much at the time (I only adjusted the seam allowance when attaching the front and back panels). Sooooo.... this will also be a nice project to learn how to take in finished garments :)
