Instant Gratification! McCall's 6038 - Zebra Print Pencil Skirt

12:00 AM

Project Details:

Pattern: McCall's 6038, View B

Description: Fitted, straight skirts A, B, C, D have contour waist and back zipper; dress A is above mid-knee; dresses B, D are below mid-knee; dress C is mid-knee; dresses B, C, D have back slit; dresses C, D have soft front pleat.

Justify FullFabric: 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!
