|Pattern Description: |
Very loose-fitting skirts have elasticized waist and narrow hem.
XS-XXL (4-26). I made view B in a modified size L (see below).
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think so!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This pattern was so easy that the instructions were not at all necessary - first time this beginner sewist felt comfortable winging it on a pattern!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
This is about the easiest maxi skirt ever, and it was incredibly simple to sew up in one evening. This version is basically a wearable muslin - I sewed it up with some sad fabric in my stash because I wanted to see whether it would work as a backup skirt for a steampunk event I'll be attending in May that will require lots of costume changes. Bottom line is that I think it will work for that purpose, but it's also a totally serviceable and easy-to-sew pattern for slouchy maxi skirts to carry one through the summer.
Terrible polyester crepe that I bought on deep discount from Fabric Mart back when I was first starting out. Even though it totally makes me look like a couch/shower curtain, though, I kind of like it and I think I will be wearing it for bumming around in the summer.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
This pattern comes in two sizes, XS-S-M and L-XL-XXL. I bought it last spring in the larger size because that's what would have fit me then, but now I'm definitely in the M category. So I cut out the pattern to a size L and then took an inch off the side seam of each pattern piece, then proceeded to use the altered pieces to cut my fabric. I'm pretty happy with the fit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm definitely going to make more of these - definitely one for the steampunk event, and also I could see this being very comfy in a nice jersey. This is a great way to build up one's collection of maxi skirts! There are also variations that come with the pattern, but since I'm not big on hi-low hems, I'll probably stick with the straight skirt.
Easy, easy, easy!
