All views have a slim fit through the hip with a flare on the bottom. 5 views included I made View C, an A-line 4 gore skirt. All views have an elastic waist. Pattern Sizing:
XXS to XXL Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
No, due to a major length adjustment Were the instructions easy to follow?
These skirts are all very easy to construct. The other views have godets and the instructions are excellent. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I was looking for a very easy A line skirt and remembered this pattern was in my stash. It fit the bill perfectly. Fabric Used:
Black lace with a blush crepe lining. Both are mystery fabrics; the skirt cost about $15.00! Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened the skirt to slightly above the knee. Each layer was constructed separately. I joined the layers at the waist and attached the elastic waistband with the layers "as one". The hemming was tricky since the lace was a little stretchy while the lining was not. First I basted the layers together at the hemline being careful that the lace didn't "pull" oddly. Then I hand hemmed the lining to the desired length. With the basting stitch holding everything together, I loosely turned the lace to the inside and hand stitched to the lining, being careful not to catch the lace itself. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?This is a very versatile pattern and couldn't be easier. The double layer hem was tricky, but other fabrications would be a cinch.
Conclusion: I've shied away from above the knee skirts, but I really like the way this skirt turned out. It feels very modern to me and will be fun to wear in many different ways.
