|Pattern Description: A line skirt, shaped yoke ends 1 inch below waist|
Pattern Sizing: used size 10, average hip. I am 5'1" and 110# My hip measure is 35" and waist is 27. My waist measure is bigger than the pattern, but it fits perfectly, without any adjustment. I made view B , and added 2" of length to make it 24 1/2 "
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? I jumped in and just made it without basting it together and trying it on, so I was jumping ahead of the instructions. Just had to remember, the side seams on the skirt and the waistband are 1", and the rest are 5/8" The instructions are good. I had to put extra effort and thought into it because I haven't sewed for years , and I made it on my brand new Brother sewing machine.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the shape. No cons.
Fabric Used: poly cotton from Joanne fabrics, I think it used to be called Trigger poplin It's medium weight and shuns wrinkles.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I didn't put pockets on the front and lengthened view B
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I will make it again and highly recommend it
Conclusion: Fits just perfectly, the best skirt I own.
