Pencil-shape skirt

What are you most proud of? I managed to make it larger directly on the pattern and it was perdect size! I altered it when trying it: I narrowed a bit the bottom to make it more a pencil shape. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Really easy when following Diana video and book pattern and advices. Perfect for beginners!

Q&A with Marcelinette

msmcghee asked:
what type of dressform are you using. I need to get me one.
Marcelinette answered:
It is a cheap one (for a dress form) from Singer that can adjust to your size. Obviously it is better than nothing but it is not as perfect as a specific dressform at your specific size, but way cheaper. They provide different size (small, medium, large). I took a large for me (size 20). http://www.amazon.com/SINGER-DF150-Adjustable-Dress-Medium/dp/B000H6KZYI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1374846996&sr=8-1&keywords=singer+adjustable+dress+form
