Pattern is described as a skirt with elasticized waist and godets. It's a maxi skirt, with godets, and an elastic waistband.
I tried to pre-fit the pattern per the instructions in the pattern, and almost made a size bigger. Fortunately, a reviewer wrote that this pattern ran very big, so I went with a size 12. I probably could have gone smaller, in fact. But it fits! And I can always take in the waistband easily, if necessary.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty much. I'm sure the fabric used in the photo shoot was made of a lighter-weight fabric than what I used.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yep! Easiest of the four styles!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It was so easy and pretty fast. And with the godets, it added a little flare to the skirt that you wouldn't normally get from a tube maxi skirt.
A medium-weight interlock knit. Probably better used for a light-weight sweatshirt because it's a lot of fabric and the skirt was pretty heavy when I was done with it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made
No alterations or changes, aside from using a different width of elastic.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If I can find a lighter-weight knit, I'd make one for the spring/summer. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a maxi skirt with a little flare.
Making this skirt made me realize how much I need a serger. Thankfully, my sewing machine has a walking foot, so it made sewing the skirt a lot less painful than it could have been.
