|Pattern Description: Loose fitting long top has front button and loop closure, long or short sleeves, optional top stitching and can be made with or without purchased lace medallions. Slim pull on skirt and pants have elastic casing. Skirt has back vent. (Taken from the back of this 1997 pattern)|
Pattern Sizing: 18w - 24w
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? From the front, but not the back as I made a change to the vent.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Didn't use them. This is a two piece skirt!!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Quick, easy, looks professional.
Fabric Used: A lovely drapey, poly, crepe in the deepest matte black.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I extended the bottom hem and centre back seam (similar to a godet) which gives me the circumference I need for walking ease. Oh, and it is flippy - and I love flippy hems!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is so easy and I know that some people do not like elasticated waists, but I love it. It is fully lined with a lace trim to the lining. I wore it to work today, with a black shell and a deep lilac cashmere cardigan. I felt like a million dollars! and it was just perfect!
Conclusion: As above. This skirt is a simple rectangle - just like my body, so it will be perfect for chopping up and making other designs/trims. More details on my blog
