|Pattern Description: |
"Misses' skirt in three lengths with peplum variations."
8-18 I cut a 16 at the hips and tried to grade down to a 14, but then I forgot... So.. More on that later.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but I added a lining.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. They did a fantastic job of explaining how to correctly sew a vent. I added a lining and I did a terrible job with it around the vent. It kept pulling. AFTER I wore the skirt, I found out that it was pulling in the back. I found a post that explains how to do it correctly. (I will use in the future.)
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I didn't like the two piece waistband. I guess it was more of not liking my material? It was so much thickness, it just didn't feel right. I tried to fuse the pieces and just on the fold, but the waist is contoured, so that wouldn't have worked.
I loved the simplicity of the base skirt. It's a good place to start when trying to make a perfect fitting skirt. I just forget to cut/grade it to a smaller size at the waist. If you need to adjust the size, I suggest doing so before the waistband is on.
I used a heavyweight houndstooth suiting from Joann that has been in my stash for quite a while. The lining is one of the basic poly linings in a crimson, blood red.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added a lining.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I want to make this in a billion colors, maybe without the peplum.
This skirt is A+ in my book. It flatters, wears fabulously and is classic! I want to make this out pretty much every material that I have touched since I sewed it. I'm rather upset that I let this pattern sit around for so long . It is a great pattern and its going to be used and abused
