Very close-fitting, below waist pull-on skirt has elastic waist with contrast facing, pleats, front extending to side back, no side seams and right side back slit. Self bias binding finishes hem.
Against my better judgment I cut a size 18 which was closest to my measurements and it was huge! I trimmed it down to a 16 and it was still a little roomy, so I probably ended up btwn a 14 and 16.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the originality of the design and that it's very easy to sew.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lowered the pleats in the back panel 1" so they fell closer to where my actual butt was and then eliminated the 2 top pleats for a smoother fit at the small of my back. Like other reviewers I used purchased contrast bias binding to finish the seams.V1282 Guts
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will sew this again! It's quick to make, uses very little fabric and is comfortable on. Will probably make a shorter version next.
With modifications this skirt fits surprisingly well and was a quick make.
