I came across an Ikat Fabric which resembled an Ikat I had seen in my Jan issue of Elle by designer Altuzarra so I pulled out the pattern I wanted to use but since I wanted to imitate slightly the pockets on the Altuzarra skirt I drafted them and added it to the skirt. I also drafted a lining from the skirt front and back pieces to give the skirt a nice weight.
Pattern Description: Cynthia Rowley Simplicity 2512
There is a coupon for the pattern, my free pocket pattern, free shipping plus more pics on My Blog
Pattern Sizing: I cut the 6
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern once you were done sewing with it? Yes kind of
Were the instructions easy to follow? I have made this skirt before unlined and so I didn't use them this time around because I was adding the pockets and lining so I just used my own method of construction. I do remember the instructions being really clear and easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I have been a fan of this pattern since its release, the tapered hem and gathered skirt with the high waistband are flattering.
Fabric Used: I used this great IKAT FABRIC (link on the blog) they have amazing IKAT Prints to choose from too.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a lining and created the pockets. ( There is a link to the FREE pocket pattern I drafted on the blog too)
Would you sew it again? No, I think I'm done with this pattern for a while but you never know, lol I tend to make my favorite "Basics" in several colors and prints.
