|UPDATE 8/2014: I have used this pattern another several times, and varied the skirt width and fabric - cotton and rayon give good results! |
Pattern Description: This is a Lutterloh skirt pattern, and as with all Lutterloh skirt or pant patterns, you use your own hip measurement to draft the pattern.
Pattern Sizing:This pattern is a regular one, not a full figured pattern, but the style lends itself to any figure.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?I used rayon, so the skirt I made is much more drapey. But you can see the general lines, yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow?There are no instructions with Lutterloh patterns. You either know the routine of garment construction, or you use your sewing books. This skirt was not hard, and would make a nice beginner project.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like the style because it has its fullness out and down from the hip, rather than the waist, so the fit is a nice flattering look rather than the fullness of a bunched up waist and upper hip.
Fabric Used:A lovely drapey rayon from Threadneedle Fabrics, my local independent fabric shop.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:I used an elastic sew-flip-sew waist application rather than an applied waistband. This wasn't really a design change, but to hem it I just serged the bottom and turned up just the serging width and sewed that as my hem. I see that a lot now in ready to wear. Nice and neat.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I would sew it again because it is an easy skirt to make, and a quick one! In fact I have another length of rayon ready to go.
Conclusion: This was part of my now fabled SWAP Plan '08, now hoping to be SWAP plan '09.
