|Pattern:Vintage McCalls 8258. It's a 1950's fitted slim skirt and back slit.|
Fabric: Plaid Wool Flannel. Oh gorgeous! With polyester lining...
Size and alterations: Generally skirts fit me quite well, inclusive vintage.
Like on most skirts, I barely make major changes. In this case, the only difference is that I omitted the waistband. No interfacing was used.
Level: Beginner. It's just a simple pencil skirt without a waistband, darts both at the front and back.
Pattern skill: Able to sew darts, vent, lining and 'invisible' zipper.
Year: Dated 1950
Will you make it again?No, although I like it how simple was to sew, there are so many other patterns I want to try. In an attempt to rid myself of patterns I don't want to sew anymore, I already promised this pattern to a friend.
What did you particularly like or dislike about this pattern: It's lovely to sew a piece of history.
Long skirt it's not a look I would rock every day but English heritage is such a big trend that the whole outfit is cute. I love this jacket and hat and wore many shoots for the blog.
Conclusion: It's cute for work but after looking at the photos it makes me shapeless! I'm thinking to take a few cm/in of the hem. Where it current hits the calf it's a strange length for modern girls. What you guys think? My best assets (1.17 m of legs) are mostly hidden!
Sewing Tip: How to sew a vent Add a back slit or vent on your pencil skirt using The fashionable Stitch tutorial.
