Instant Gratification! McCall's 6038 - Zebra Print Pencil Skirt12:00 AM
Pattern: McCall's 6038, View B
Fabric: Linen blend (55% linen/45% rayon)
Pattern Size: 4-20. I cut the 16.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it does.
Were the instructions easy to follow? What instructions?! LOL It's a pencil skirt!
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Normally, I would have had to add length. But I used view B, the longer version. And this is where it stops on me! LOL I did add a lining. I don't like wearing slips in the Summer and it was a MUST that there be something in between me and the sheerness of the linen fabric. I used THIS method so I didn't have to hand stitch the lining to the zipper tape.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The only thing I didn't like about this pattern is that there wasn't a lining included. But it was no big deal to just add one.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew this again and again and again! Yes, I highly recommend this to anyone that would love to add basic pencil skirts to their wardrobe!
I'm amazed at how much I had to say about a simple pencil skirt. I was actually planning to do one of those "Look at what I've sewn" post with a limited amount of text!
