|Pattern Description: New Look Just 4 Knits sewing pattern. Misses’ knit tops with neckline variations, pull on skirt and knit or woven scarf with fringe detail. |
Pattern Sizing: Sizes 4-16 We sewed this skirt in size 10 to give us some leeway, and it was great. Next time, though, size 8...will be perfect fit for DD. Because it is somewhat of a "circle skirt", (it's not a "full" circle skirt) and elastic is installed in the waistband, fit is not an issue with this skirt.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. This is "ours".
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very Easy. I tend to have the bad habit of NOT following directions, but for my DD, who is learning to sew, we stuck to the directions, so she can learn to read pattern directions. I thought they were very good. I liked the technique for sewing on the waistband, then inserting elastic.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? We used the skirt pattern as a project for beginning sewing for my DD. It is her third sewing project, and first time ever to sew with a knit. I like that she has received so many compliments on this skirt. Smile!
Fabric Used: Medium weight Cotton Knit we got for $1 per yard from Walmart. Pretty much can't go wrong with that!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. Straight from the pattern.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. and Yes. DD sewed a second one for her friend, (another $1 a yard piece) who so admired her skirt
Conclusion: Easy and looks great! She has had many compliments on this skirt! That'll boost a girl's want-to to sew!!
