|This is a multisize pattern for a high waisted fitted skirt with several variations.|
I have made this pattern numerous times now, but since this is an entry for the stash contest, it was easier to write a new review.
My first version of this skirt I made to the pattern with the high waist, but didn't like this look on myself, so lowered the waist to the natural waistline. The waist was then simply finished with Petersham ribbon.
For this version, I have used a red linen blend which sewed beautifully. The skirt is unlined with an invisible CB zip closure and back vent opening. The side panel seams are topstitched front and back.
Since I'm vertically challenged, the skirt has also been shorten to hit just below knee level.
