This is a self drafted pencil skirt using a worksheet from Studio Faro. Pattern Sizing:
There's no sizing. You make this using your actual waist and hip measurements. This is going to be handy as my size goes up and down. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes. There are better pictures on my blog. I'm still getting used to the new picture feature. Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were. I had to put aside an hour of no interruptions so that I could concentrate. That's just how I learn better, with no distractions. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how I get to determine how this skirt will fit me. I also like how I can make this skirt for anyone now.
I love the skirt zipper facing.
I don't like the idea of making a bigger size if my waist gets bigger or smaller but that's the reality of a keen sewer's life. Fabric Used:
The first version uses a cotton stretch woven.
The second version uses a wool woven. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. I've designed this to suit my size and shape. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and Yes. Conclusion:
If you're bored with sewing skirts that need altering, try drafting your own using some instructions like what I've used. If you're not confident to pattern draft, this is a simple quick win that will start to build your pattern drafting skills.
