Current Tags What is a Tag:
Fabric:Cotton-Lycra Woven  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: Misses skirts, each in two lengths.

Pattern Sizing: 4 - 20; I'm a RTW size 8, am slowly becoming aware that patterns are totally different - cut a size 14 for view C.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the silhouette, even with the pockets and small pleats in the front, it is flattering. The contoured waistband and darts in the back are also helpful in this regard.

Fabric Used: Floral, woven cotton/lycra.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, only change I would make is to add length - my fabric was off grain, so didn't have enough to add this time around so I had to use hem facing, which was fine.

Conclusion: Love it, I can see why it is a favorite of many.

Yeah the sizing is sucky. But there are no tags, so no one knows, right? Great fabric choice!

Sizing is crazy, and they are only numbers. Your skirt and your review, are great! Good job, and TFS!
