Pattern Description:
From the pattern envelope: "Misses' Top and Skirt Fitted top has collar, shoulder pads, princess seams, shaped peplum, tie ends and above elbow or long sleeves. Flared skirt, above ankle has waistband, back band and narrow hem."

Pattern is from 1987.

Pattern Sizing:
This is a single sized pattern, size 14.

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
It is a very simple skirt, that said I didn't follow the instructions but they do look fine.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the back button detail and the longer length.

Fabric Used:
100% cotton that I found in the home decor department.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added pockets to the side seams.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would recommend it to others. Not sure if I want to make another one.

I think this is a great skirt pattern for beginners as there are no darts and it is a quick make. More details at my blog, Click Here.

I have never seen this pattern but recognize the period details. The back buttons on the skirt are a nice detail. The top would be fun for me to do with less heft in the shoulders and arm. I like the peplum detail.

What a wonderful skirt, especially the vivid home dec it! I really like the blouse in the pattern also.

Thanks. I would also like to try the top too, just not too keen on the shoulder pads. And the blouse I'm wearing in the photo is the CB Spiral Top from the Centre for Pattern Design. It was an interesting pattern as it has only one pattern piece, the collar on the top I added from another pattern.

I made both pieces way back when and didn't use shoulder pads in the top. I still wear the skirt on occasion. It's a great pattern, and your version is striking.
