I love when an "easy-to-sew" pattern is also cute! Such is the case with Simplicity 2258:
I made this skirt for my 20-year-old sister for Christmas. It is a deep purple corduroy with elastic waistband, pockets, and ties that make the most adorable bow at the front of the skirt. It was a breeze to sew, and I definitely plan on making this skirt for myself in the future.
