Burda Style Princess Seam Pencil Skirt 04-2012 #118
36-44 (US 4-12)
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
No. My sister was quite confused at times. It could have been more detailed. There were no alignment marks, which were needed.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
She didn't care for the instructions but the skirt in general is a nice shape. There were also no seam allowances added which I didn't care for.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I had to size up this skirt 7 inches because the pattern didn't come in my size. For each pattern piece, I had to add 1/2" (total of one inch per piece so it would fit) plus the seam allowance. It took 3 hours from print out of original pattern to completed altered pattern. She also still has to dart around the waist for a better fit on me.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, now that she has made the necessary adjustments.
It's a good pattern but the instructions need to be more detailed.
