|Pattern Description: From the website: Especially for beginners, this is the perfect flared skirt! A wardrobe essential, the Hollyburn Skirt has just the right amount of flare. It sits right at the waist for maximum figure flattery, and features super practical pockets!|
Based on the popular Lonsdale Dress pattern, this skirt pattern includes three different lengths with three different amounts of flare. The shorter the skirt, the more flared the silhouette!
Additional details add emphasis to the waistline, with optional button tabs to feature pretty buttons, or belt loops to show off your favourite belts.
Pattern includes extra-thorough sewing instructions and detailed sewing diagrams. Perfect for your first garment project!
Easy to wear, simple to sew!
Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller waist, larger hips.
Pattern Sizing: 0-16 (all sizes are included in one pattern!) I chose View B with added tabs and buttons.
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? The instructions are very easy to follow - Tasia made this pattern with beginners in mind, and I think she did an excellent job. There are enough extra details to make things interesting for any skill level, but a beginner can certainly tackle this project with a bit of help (online or otherwise!).
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love a swingy skirt. With three different lengths to choose from, this really is the perfect skirt for every occasion.
I cannot think of anything that I do not like about this pattern.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I decided to add a lining to my skirt since this winter weight garment was going to be worn with tights and I wanted to avoid static cling! More details of how I went about this may be found here.
I also took out a bit of fullness at the center front, mostly due to my heavy weight fabric choice.
And the pieces were cut on the bias instead of with the grain.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I am sure that I will be sewing another Hollyburn at some point. It really is a lovely pattern, and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Conclusion: I am very pleased with my new skirt and imagine that it will be getting a whole lot of wear in the coming months!
