|Pattern Description: |
High waisted pleated skirt.
Spanish sizes 40-44-48, I made a size 40 which is like a European size 36
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I ironed all the pleats to just one side and did not sew on the tapes but otherwise it looks like the drawing/photo.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I don't speak Spanish, so I don't know. As far as I could tell, there was no information concerning the zipper. In the end I sewed the zipper into the pleat on the left side. This took some trial and error and I had to lengthen the pleat for this. If I was going to sew this skirt again, I would lengthen the zipper even more.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the fitted high, waist and the wide, pleated skirt. No dislikes.
Cotton with flower print
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I ironed all the pleats to just one side and did not sew on the tape otherwise it is like the original pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I might sew it again because it is such a nice shape. Highly recommend this skirt, its fit was perfect from the beginning on.
Love, love, love the shape of this skirt!
