|Pattern Description: |
Misses' skirt in three lengths
6-14, I made a size 14 based on my waist measurement
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I liked the curved yoke waistband, the different lengths/details offered in the pattern, the simplicity of the pattern.
Lightweight denim (6 oz. or 8 oz., I can't remember now, but it was the lightest denim on the shelf) from Joann Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made View C but shortened it, I did not add pockets or any of the other details. I used an invisible zipper. At the point of sewing up the back seam and inserting the zipper, I switched to the Colette pants/shorts directions for inserting an invisible zipper with a waistband. I hemmed the skirt using rayon seam binding from A Fashionable Stitch. Also, I used some leftover cotton lawn for the inside waistband to keep it from being too bulky and to add a sweet detail on the inside.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would like to sew it again and try inserting a lining, a first for me. I would highly recommend this pattern. At its most simple level, it's a great pattern for beginners since you only have to fit your waist. It's also a great wardrobe builder and flattering to wear.
I was trying to replicate a skirt I saw in an ad and this pattern came pretty close to the shape of the skirt I saw. It was also quick and satisfying to sew.
