This is a wonderful cotton twill from Santa Fe Fabrics and my trip with the Fiberlies in April. I fell in love with the bird print and knew it would be perfect in my favorite Marfy A-line sporty summer skirt, #093.
It's the skirt on the left in the pattern drawing below, without the belt carriers or patch pockets, and lengthened just over 5".
The pockets I have are kind of an inset apron pocket, copied from an Alice+Olivia skirt. I've made this skirt quite a few times, never have done the belt carriers, and although the original pockets are a little small in my opinion, I have used them at least once. I've done other patch pockets and this pocket several times.
Here's the inside of the skirt showing the pocket construction.

The rest of the skirt is quite simply done, with a faced waistband, interfaced of course and stitched through all layers at the darts and seams.
Centered back zipper with a hook at the top for security.
And of course a hand stitched hem for invisibility.
