Pattern Description:
The pattern is a PDF downloadable pattern

Pattern Sizing:
Based on our personal mesurement : I really hate to print, tape, cut, trace, and then cut again a pdf pattern, but I love to have a pattern that fit whitout any adjustement

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?


Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were clear enough (the hardest thing was to understand which piece of the pattern correspond to which part of the skirt). This pattern can be a little bit tricky for a beginner, but if you know how to sew a vent, a concealed zipper (and don’t need picture or explanation to do this kind of thing) , you must be able to sew it without problem.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The fit is very good and this skirt is very sophisticated. It's my new favorite skirt
Fabric Used:
Wool gabardine

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No, no, no !!!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I plan to make another one in red and maybe a yellow one
This was my first try with a Lekala pattern and, for sure, that will not be the last one...

Gorgeous! I'm kicking myself for having not participated in the Frabjous Couture sew-along.

This looks marvelous on you. I made my first Lekala pattern and was impressed with the fit.

Oh, cute! I've had my eye on this pattern, your skirt is very flattering. I bet it has great movement when you walk.
