This picture came into my day and has instantly topped the list of things to make for myself (admittedly a short list to begin with - but I do believe it would have made top billing regardless).
I had a skirt just like this (minus the scoop pocket) as a kid. It came from England (yes, it was the late 70's/very early 80's as identified in the pattern description) with a matching blouse that coordinated with the bias tape and one side of the skirt.
I want this skirt something silly! In fact, I can see myself making a few for Spring.
