Back in November my daughter needed a black skirt for her concert performance. I knew I wanted a floor length skirt so I measured the waist and hips of a purchased skirt that we already liked, then I added the bottom from View E. And this is what I got!
Fabric: This is made from the lightest gabardine sold at Hancock (which is a bit expensive). I have not had to iron this yet, it is a wash and wear fabric. I needed durability since she will need to wear this black skirt twice a year as long as it fits.
Would I sew it again: Yes, with variations.
Did it look like the pattern: Yes.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. So much so, that I read through them once and didn't look at them again.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that it was easy and fast. Sometimes I look at simple designs on people and think, "I could make that" and then get scared to try to make it on my own. I liked that even though the designs are "no-brainers", I could rely on the pattern if I got stuck or unsure of myself.
No pill fleece
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None this time!
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would definitely recommend the pattern.
I don't have a photo of my finished project, however I really liked this pattern. Simple lines. Even with surging I still managed to do this in about 2 1/2 hours including cutting and pinning pattern, cutting fabric, sewing and finishing. I highly recommend surging or do good hand sewn seam finishing on this pattern since it is so flowing and the inside of the garment will be seen during movement.
