Marie skirt pattern

It has been a while since I used a new BurdaStyle pattern, but a couple of weeks ago, I printed out Marie skirt pattern. It is free at BurdaStyle! I wanted to make a cocoon skirt, and this pattern was perfect. It is very very easy, and the front and back part of the skirt has the same pattern. It has an interesting pleats which I liked. I connected with the pattern I made for front part to make it a dress.
Some improvements I would make for the next time is:
1) Make it shorter - I feel as though BurdaStyle patterns are always too long for me. Perhaps that's because I'm not particularly tall in American standard (I'm 5'5) but I prefer skirt to be a bit shorter than my knee.
2) Add a slit in the back. I find it a bit hard to walk, because the hem of the skirt is a bit tight. It's not like you cannot walk around, but I prefer having more room since I like to walk fast!
