|Fabric:||Cotton Tweed [See other projects in this fabric]|
|Pattern Description: |
Straight skirt in 3 lengths with 3 peplum options
US 8-18 I did size 12, although measurements suggested. 14-16 and I took lots out of seams.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes although I didn't add any of the trim or a peplum
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes , all straight forward.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Bought it because of the peplum and then didn't add it! But good basic shaped skirt with back vent. I will make a peplum version. I made the shortest length.
Linton tweed, cotton /wool mix with slubs of shiny stuff ( looks a bit like thin tinsel). Underlined with very fine knitted fusible interfacing to stop the fabric falling apart when cut. It frays like crazy.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Omitted peplum and didn't do back vent. I made back darts wider at top to cope with sway back. I made the facing from cotton rather than the wool as I thought it might be itchy. I added a lining.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will make the peplum version and I might try a longer pencil skirt one brave day.
Great basic skirt. Although basic shaped skirt the fabric makes it look posh and it feels good on. The sizing was weird. I've just made a new look dress size 10 that was a bit tight so I did larger size in this and had to take it in. The garment sizes were identical. Not a problem as I've ended up with a skirt I'm happy with.
Apologies if photo goes sideways!
