This project went together really easily. It has a side zipper that I was pretty nervous about putting in but since my mom was visiting, I took advantage of her sewing expertise and she guided me through the process (it really wasn't that hard).
The most "difficult" part was getting the pleats to be both symmetrical and snug around my waist. But the whole thing came together in less than two days. I started it at 9pm on Sunday night and finished it the next afternoon before I went to class.
I absolutely love this skirt!!! Go ahead--make one of your own!
