|Pattern Description: |
"The flared skirt has hand-sewn details along the centre front seam and the hem as well as patch pockets"
An A-line Skirt with a CF seam, patch pockets and invisible side zipper.
36-44. I cut a 40.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Very much so. I even used the same colour as the one in the magazine.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, it’s a pretty straight-forward pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It was pretty easy to use and simple to sew. During Me-Made-June 2011 I learnt a lot about my wardrobe and this skirt was derived from those lessons. I wanted separates, in simple shapes and neutral colours. So, what I like about this pattern was that it was quite easy to match, but still interesting.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
It’s a basic A-line skirt and a good pattern, I like the waistband and flared skirt, very much A-line in shape. If I want more A-line skirts I can definitely see myself making it again. I could recommend this to a beginner sewist who likes the style. Waistband from back
A good pattern for getting the shape of an A-line skirt. I can see some potential in variation and alterations as well in this pattern. Easy for beginners since the pockets are top-stitched. Top-stitched pockets
As I wrote, this skirt was based on the lessons I learnt during Me-Made-June 11, to read more about the skirt and those lessons, please see my blog
