Kanga Pocket Skirt

I found this free pattern on http://www.burdastyle.com and thought the front kangaroo pouch type pocket was pretty cute as well as the gathering detail at the hips. I modified this pattern by moving the zipper to the center back instead of center front, applied the lower buttons for pretty accents instead of functioning buttons, and left out the rear kick pleat as there is plenty of room in the bottom sweep.

The waist band in the pattern is about 14 pieces, I’m  assuming to accomplish some shaping. I would definitely skip this time consuming part of the pattern and substitute a simpler waist band.
