Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, even with my modifications.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Easy to sew. Pockets!!!
Fabric Used: The leopard is actually a mid-weight denim and the black is ostrich embossed patent leather with a faux snakeskin band inserted. Heavy weight satin for the pockets.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I used view B for both skirts. I changed the large pleats into smaller ones (about 1.5-2 pleats per each large one).I increased the initial length by three inches. There’s a 1.5 inch hem on the leopard print that brings the final hem to my knees! Even though I was using a patent leather for the other skirt, I still wanted it to be elegant. I didn’t have enough to make it the midi length I wanted so I used the band from view C and a piece of matte faux snakeskin to make the insert. I finished the hem and waistband with red bias binding and zebra grosgrain.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I might sew it again. In a moiré taffeta I have in the stash. I would definitely recommend it. This is an on trend pattern. It shouldn’t be OOP.
Conclusion: Chic and feminine and trendy. What’s not to love?
