Pattern Description:

A flattering, everyday skirt with pockets & and elastic waist (back only).

Pattern Sizing:

The sizing seemed a little big; based on my measurements I was a L, but think the skirt would have fit better if I went with M.

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

Yes, exactly.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

The instructions were very easy to follow. I am a very new sewer and used this pattern at a class I'm taking. I needed help from the instructor only a few times, when it was a technique I had never used.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

The front waistband combined with an elastic back is flattering and looks more put-together than a full elastic waist would. The pockets are great, too.

Fabric Used:

Cotton from the quilting section of the store; I'm very new to sewing so don't drop serious money on apparel-specific fabric yet.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

On the recommendation of my sewing teacher, I added a row of stitches at the top of the back waistband, above the top piece of elastic. She felt it added a little polish, and I agree.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Would definitely sew again, I can see this becoming a great go-to skirt for the summer in cotton or for winter in wool or flannel. I have already recommended this pattern to several people.
