Pattern Description: Full wrap skirt with graduated hem, and attractive cascades along the hemline. Aimed at a beginner level this skirt is perfect for every day wear, but also dramatic enough for a special occasion. Pattern includes three different waistband options (button up, front tie and back tie), and instructions for optional lining for sheer fabrics.

Pattern Sizing: XS-XL

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes... although I am a little shorter!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. This is a super simple easy project.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I wasn't very keen on the high-low hem however when I saw this fabric I just had to make this skirt. I do love this skirt. It's perfect on the beach - and I have worn it to dinner several times with heels, white singlet and a denim jacket. It's more versatile than you might think!

Fabric Used: Rayon

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't use the pattern piece to make the tie waist as I struggled to squeeze the skirt out of this fabric as I didn't really have quite enough. I used the length of the fabric (2m) and cut the widest and longest strip I could. Worked just fine!

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I would love more of these to wear on the beach and in summer. So easy to wear and versatile. Perfect summer skirt.

Conclusion: Gorgeous and EASY!

Lots of pictures on my blog - enjoy the beach!
