Time to Sew:
It really only take an hour or so. I came home after a movie and grocery shopping and whipped both up. Stopped a few times to make dinner and do a few other things. Mostly made on my serger and I used a small zigzag stitch to add the waistband. I whipped my daughters up using a scrap piece of fabric cut to fit around her. I serged the one side seam and folded down upper edge of skirt for elastic casing and hemmed it. Super simple. All pretty quick.
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
A 1 for sure.
Elastic waist skirt
I made a size 14
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Cute little skirts are a staple for winter. I love to pair them with tights & boots.
Snow leopard print ponte I picked up on a clearance table at Hancock Fabrics a few weeks ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
What would you do differently next time?:
I won't attach the elastic per the instructions. Instead I'll leave an opening at the base of the waistband and feed the elastic through---sewing the opening of the waistband once finished.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh YES!!!! I need lots of these cute little skirt in my wardrobe.
I like to wear little skirts with these with tights or even leggings. A cute top or sweater works well and I like to add a scarf to add layers and even pops of color.
Cute & quick skirt pattern! Definitely a wardrobe staple:)
