Finally some sewing for me!

Pattern Sizing:

Size XL

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

No picture but did see one just like it while shopping.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

If you've made a skirt or two you know how easy they can be.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Fabric Used: This is a Polyester with a linen look weave from Sew Have Fun. It has a fair bit of weight but I'll need a little slip because the light shines through. I have plans to make one of 100% cotton voile which will help keep me cool.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

Made a wedge shape, 4 inches at the waist, 9 inches at the hem with the grain line running down the center. Cut the center back with a seam allowance. 10 Gores in all. Length 27"

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

I think I will make it again, it sewed up pretty quickly.


Love the black and white and motion in the print, will be a regular for my summer wardrobe!
