Simplicity 1970- Pleated Skirt

This is Simplicity 1970. This was my first pleated skirt I ever sewn. I made this pattern with some cotton I purchased from Walmart for two dollars. I did look at the reviews on patternreview before I sewn it and that helped a lot, since most of the reviews said this pattern run big. So I made it one size smaller and it fits perfectly. The only change I made to the pattern was not adding the side pockets, which was not intended. The only reason I did not sew on the side pocket because some where in the  processes of cutting out the pattern and laying it out, I lost the pattern piece. I am still satisfied with the finished result.

I finished the skirt with a rolled hem.
