Pattern Description: Misses Skirt, Fitted above mid-knee or mid-calf length mock wrap skirts

Pattern Sizing: Size 6-12

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yep!

Were the instructions easy to follow? I've made this before, so I was familiar with the construction, but the instructions are really easy. Only 7 pieces, so that's a plus!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing to dislike really.

Fabric Used: ITY Jersey

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yep, I'd like an all black in the mid calf length. I think this skirt would look good on anyone!


I want to make one million colors in the mid calf length (which is more like below the knee with my height, lol), I like it much more than the mid length! If you've had your eye on this pattern, definitely give it a go!

Very nice, love that mid calf length also. The pattern is in my stash and should be moved to the top of the pike as its stunning!

The wrap gathered style of this pattern looks perfect on your body and the animal print makes it even more sexy!
