|Pattern Description: |
Knee length pencil skirt with double seams in front, and double vent in back
36-42 - I made a 38
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Hmm, not the greatest - I struggled with the back vents and eventually got out some old pattern and followed those instructions
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Like - the elegance of the fit. It just looks so chic!
Black stretch suiting, not sure of content, but definitely something poly/nylon.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I straightened the front middle front seams a bit - they were causing a bubble.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes.
This skirt came out looking so cool. I love the top-stitching and the overall fit is great. It will definitely become a go-to pencil skirt.
ETA. I just found this review that I wrote THREE years ago. I never got round to taking pics! I wear this skirt so often, and have used the pattern many times for other projects. It is a great pencil skirt pattern.
