Pattern Description: Circular skirts fit slightly below waist , have fitted yoke and side zipper.
Pattern Sizing:XS to Xl .
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes it really did.
Were the instructions easy to follow?The instructions are excellent with good diagrams to compliment them . I would not change anything about the construction .
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?My daughter picked out this skirt . SHe liked the yoke which was not too wide and the swishy skirt . I like the variation with the contrast fabric as well .
Fabric Used:Japanese cotton lawn from Spotlight . This feels quite soft and smooth and has a liberty look and feel about it as well . Although not as nice as liberty it is much cheaper.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I added a lining of cotton voile and also added in some ready made piping to the yoke. The piping shows up the yoke better which is lost with the floral ( and rabbit ) print .
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?This is the second time this pattern has been sewn here already. It is quite possible I will sew it again because my youngest daughter also liked the skirt.
Conclusion: This is a really easy pattern. There are only two pattern pieces ! The yoke piece is cut out four times ( front , back and the lining pieces ) and the skirt is cut out twice. The instructions are excellent so this pattern is really good for sewers of all experience. In addition because I used cotton this skirt was simple. Previously my eldest daughter has made this skirt - SHe has very little sewing experience and I barely helped her at all . Her finished skirt was really good and she wears it when going out which is another endorsement of a successful project. I would highly recommend this pattern.
