Pattern Sizing: This pattern is true to size.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it did.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow. This is a skirt that can be whipped up in a couple of hours.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like this pattern alot. The only thing I dislike is the under part of the skirt has pleats to. That didn't make sense to me. If I had designed the skirt, the part underneath would have just been straight. I had to do a lot of pressing to make sure that the pleats underneath were flat. At first, the created extra bulk. What I love most is the the pleats are at an angle and create a lovely draped effect.
Fabric Used: I used leftover gray flannel from my Vogue 1051 pants.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? It's doubtful that I will sew this skirt again. So many patterns, so little time. But if you like this style, sure... I recommend it.
I'd seen this skirt in Lucky and fell in love with the style:
