I was a pattern tester for the Annika A-line Skirt. This was my first experience with a downloaded printable pattern. I've read both pro's and con's about these kinds of patterns, however I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. Since this year I've been making it a point to try new things, so this was the perfect chance for me.
This pattern is very simple, just a front and back with a center back zipper and darts at the waistline. It printed out quickly, taped together relatively quickly and sewed up quickly. I used a piece of fabric from my stash, a beautiful red Alexander Henry Bamboo Print. I put a lining in my skirt instead of finishing the waistband with petersham because that's my preferred method.
If you haven't tried a downloadable pattern yet, this is the perfect one to try!! Instant Gratification! Purchase NOW + Get the Pattern NOW + Make it NOW = WEAR IT NOW!!
