Pattern Description: Bias cut skirt worn 2 inches below waist

Pattern Sizing: UK size 12

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did. I thought my version looked better due to the vibrant colours of the fabric.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes and luckily there were only 5 pieces to the skirt pattern.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like bias cut skits as they provide a flattering fit. I had no doubts that this skirt would fit me.

Fabric Used: Printed cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I added a polyester lining as the cotton was too lightweight.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I would definitely recommend this pattern to all levels of sewers.

Conclusion: I think anyone who loves skirts should have this in their wardrobe. It can be made in summer and winter fabrics and can be worn all year round.
