This is one of the best patterns I've ever come across. I love the design!
The fabric I used in the above picture (excuse the worn-the-day-before look :)
is a light weight stretch poplin.
The pockets are great. They hold quite a bit without you feeling weighed down.
I've also made this skirt with Rip Stop fabric. I would have liked it in a lighter weight
but the medium I found worked out well.
