Thanks for an honest review. The expensive patterns are not always better, and it's good to let people know when that happens.

How frustrating for you! Hope you can salvage something from your fabric. Thanks for the review & information.

Cindie, that's a shame. I have yet to have a good experience making Silhouettes patterns. I saw a fashion show of these patterns at the Expo, and I thought many of them looked badly sewn then, but perhaps it's just faulty drafting. It's a pity, because Peggy Sagers is an excellent teacher. -Ann

I too have not had much success with this pattern group. I eventually sold several of the patterns through PR that I purchased but bad experience with one was enough for me. Some folks really like these patterns and I am glad they work for them. Glad you were able to salvage the skirt.

Thanks for this review. I have a different skirt by Peggy, and will check the waist measurement. I did a review a while ago of a Kwik Sew pull-on skirt with a waist measurement too small to pull over the hips. Very discouraging.

interesting. I have this pattern and I will measure it. I was taught the proper way to remove a skirt was over your head so you wouldn't get it dirty or catch your foot on it, so as long as it goes over my breast I am okay.

Did you choose the pattern size by using the seated hip measurement as indicated on the pattern envelope? I'm considering buying it but having second thoughts after your review.
