I made view A the maxi skirt.

Pattern Sizing: 8-16. I made the size 10
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it does.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very, very easy. I cut out and sewed this skirt in just about 2 hours.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the maxi skirt! I also like some of the other views.
I don't like how the pattern sizing puts me into a much larger size than I needed, but I am used to that by now for Simplicity and other patterns, and go by the finished garment measurements to choose what size to make.
Fabric Used: A polyester knit of some sort of content. I chose it for the hand and drape qualities that would be perfect for this kind of skirt.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added 3 inches to the skirt pattern to make sure it was a maxi length on me. Other than that, nothing else.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would and I will sew it again!
The only thing I would do differently would be to make the waist band a smaller size or two because it is large on me at the waist and feels like it could fall down, plus it is meant to sort of scrunch at the waist, and my version just lays flat and is not tight enough to scrunch. I've been wearing this skirt belted meanwhile, but would like it to be more fitted at the waist.
I highly recommend this for a fast and easy pattern!
Conclusion: Love this skirt! I is so comfortable and looks great with very little effort!
