|Pattern Description: Knee length skirt with bias flounce|
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? I altered them slightly. When putting on the flounce, I used a 1 cm hem, only. I put in a CB invisible zip, used interfacing tape to stabilise the waist.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? love the pencil lines and the cute flounce
Fabric Used: black herringbone fabric (polyester/rayon/lycra) with flocked floral pattern, it drapes well and doesn't need ironing, from Needleworks, Adelaide, South Australia.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Inserted CB seam and added seam allowances for this. Omited waistband. Shorten flounce by at least 10 cm, I am about 5'1". ( I prefered the flounce shorter, rather than shortening the skirt part, as other reviewers have done.)I also inserted velvet piping to highlight the flounce, which gives the skirt a chic touch. I have also made this in beige linen/viscose and red/black/white plaid, but this is my favourite version.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes and yes
A lovely and versatile variation on a pencil skirt.
