Pattern Sizing: 34-44. I cut a 38 according to my measurements but ended up taking in the seams so it was probably a 36 when I was done.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Totally.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Snort. I glanced at them once to check out the zipper/waistband placement but otherwise didn't refer to them. Burda instructions drive me nuts.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It's a well drafted classic pencil skirt with nicely placed darts and a beautiful waistband. The back split is not to my liking so I replaced it with a vent using this tutorial.
Fabric Used: A stretchy drill, not sure about fibre content as it was a gift but it feels nice.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I only cut one waistband and folded it over so it was half the width. I didn't have enough fabric to cut the waistband on the bias but as my fabric had alot of stretch it didn't matter, it worked well cut on grain. I tapered the side seams in a bit more from hip to hem to make it more fitted at the kneeline and added a back vent instead of the split so it was a bit less "hello there" at the back.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is now my go to pattern for pencil skirts. I will make it again, many times and I would recommend it as a classic simple skirt.
Conclusion: As pencil skirts go this one works well. I'm looking forward to making this for winter in some lovely wool. More pics at my blog. Some of this missing parts of this pattern such as a lining and vent are covered over at the pencil skirt sewalong on this blog which used the Jenny skirt pattern for the sewalong.
