Pattern Description: Misses wrap skirt in three lengths- a vintage McCall's pattern from 1972.
Pattern Sizing: This is a single size pattern that came in S, M, and L. Mine is size L for a 29"-31" waist.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, almost exactly, except I made my pockets differently.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy. This is a great beginner pattern.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the classic wrap-skirt shape. And the full coverage in the back panels means no risk of wardrobe malfunction. This is just a great basic skirt that never goes out of style!
Fabric Used: Cheap green denim from JoAnn. It's the perfect shade of kelly green, so even though the dye did some strange things when I washed it and left some weird water mark kind of lines all over my yardage I had to use it anyway. I cut around the weirdness as best I could and hope that any remaining issues will fade with further washing.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Instead of sewing the pocket piece to the skirt front as instructed, I made a pocket bag from funky purple printed cotton and left it free hanging. I considered top-stitching around the bag to give the same casual look that the pattern suggests, but in the end I opted for a plainer look without the stitching.
I added a belt loop of perfectly matching rayon seam binding to the left hip to keep the fabric belt in place on that side, and other than that I made the skirt up in view C (the shortest view) exactly as instructed.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I think I would. This is just such a classic shape and a great basic wardrobe builder.
Conclusion: It's a great pattern. Easy and nicely drafted, with just the right amount of attention to detail. I highly recommend it if you can find a copy floating around on Etsy or in a thrift store!
