Pattern Description:
Misses' top, pull-on full & slim skirts and pull-on pants.

Pattern Sizing:
6 - 16 (I made 14 but could have cut 12 at the waist)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, as it's a very simple profile.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were clear and easy to follow along to; only a few seams to this skirt and nothing very tricky though.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the whole pattern for all the options, and I like this skirt both for its easy lines and the final effect.

Fabric Used:
Poly-knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I was going to add a pocket but completely forgot, so no change there. The only other change I made was to cut it to my preferred length, which was about halfway between the quite short and quite long options in the pattern.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'd totally sew it again; quick and so cute. Next time I'd remember to add pockets.

Conclusion:
An easy pattern and well worth your time. I'd like to try each of the pattern options now.

crazygrad - yes, it is *Just4Knits on the envelope...but I think you could totally make this skirt out of a woven - the elastic waist would accommodate it. Not sure about any of the other pieces though.

caper81 - I knew it looked familiar for some reason! love your dresses too Llanogirl - on sale at my local Fabricland -- if there was any more I'd be buying more :) Rieski - I was surprised at how nicely this worked out. The fabric is lightweight enough that it doesn't pull but heavy enough to fall beautifully!

I have this pattern too and never guessed it would fall as nicely as yours does. I will definitely try it now.
