Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the curves of the skirt, very slimming and offer a great opportunity for stitching detail.
Fabric Used: An animal print stretch sateen I got at a 3 for 1 sale at Fabricville (paid $12 for 3 yards!)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None, I followed the instructions as written.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. This was too small for me, but once I drop some pounds, this skirt turned out gorgeous, and it fits my daughter-in-law beautifully!
Conclusion: A great pattern with several design options making it a great wardrobe builder.
