Pattern Description:
Misses Skirt - View A - Flutter Skirt

Pattern Sizing: I cut the size 8 but could have probably cut a 6. I over thought it.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, I believe it did. I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were very clear.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the ease of this pattern, the style was exactly what I had in mind. There were no dislikes.

Fabric Used: Gabardine in a crisp white.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I plan to make it again in black.

Conclusion: What can I say about this pattern? I like it, it’s so freaking cute I could scream and it was exactly what I was looking for in a skirt!

Beautiful outfit - you look so chic! And I love that pop of colour from the red necklace - perfect.
