Pattern Description: Misses' easy to sew full skirt in four lengths, with yoke and side zipper. Skirt can be made in mini, knee, mid calf, and ankle length with side front slit or decorative front panel options.

Pattern Sizing: I made the 10

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the side slit and gathered front and back center panels. The partial gathers does not give all around fullness that can add bulk. I thought the side slit was sexy in an understated way.

Fabric Used: Printed rayon from my stash.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I am happy to say there were none.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I plan to make this in cotton jersey without the zipper and with elastic in the waist.

I recommend this one.

That does look so fun and perfect for summer. I like the slit in the front, nice touch.

Cute skirt! I have not seen this pattern though I have recently purchased several Simplicity patterns. There are several nice versions in this pattern, glad you reviewed this.

Really cute! I especially like that it's a full skirt without all the bulk!
