|Pattern Description: |
Misses' pull-on skirt, has six gores and an elasticized waist, is flared at the lower edge with length and hem variations.
I made view B, the skirt with a shaped flared hem band.
I used size 13 and 14, instead of my usual 12.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, they look like it a lot.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, they were detailed.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the flared and shaped hem bands finished in a stitched narrow hem. I also like the elastic waist.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened all the skirts by 2", by reducing the length of the hem bands at the lower edge.
As I wanted more ease, I sewed the skirts in size 14 with waist being 13, instead of my regular 12.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others
I do not plan to sew more of this view this year, but I would recommend it to others. Many other styles are available in the envelope. I have already tried the version with flounce hem bands and tie bow (skirt D). Click Here
The skirts were very easy and simple to make.
Fast and fun to do projects.
