Summer Skirt

New Look 6594

In the past I have never been one for wearing dresses and skirts but now that I have learned how to sew I can't resist all of the pretty summer fabric and cute dress and skirt patterns that are out there. So this year I'm wearing more dresses and skirts and loving it.....even if I don't have the best shaped legs (that's why I never wore skirts in the past). I guess with age we get over silly thinking like that.....anyway here's the review.

Pattern Description:

Misses Skirts.

Pattern Sizing:

misses 8-18 I made the size twelve.

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?

They where very easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I was looking for a skirt pattern that was cute and casual without alot of gathers around the hips (my hips do not need any extra width:)This one fit the bill with the wide waistband that sits on the more of a slimming effect I think.

Fabric Used:

Some kind of poly that I picked up on the Red Tag table at Joann-fabrics. Really liked that it had the cute flowers with the black border on the bottom of the fabric.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

No changes make. I sewed a size twelve straight out of the envelope.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I have some more fabric to make another yes I would sew it again. I highly recommend it to others.


Cute summer skirt that I'm sure I will get alot of wear out of this year.



  1. Beautiful skirt! I love the black at the hem. It looks very sophisticated.

  2. Lovely skirt and agree with you whole heartedly that as we get older we get over silly thinking like that. Since I've started sewing I have learn to accept my legs the way they are.

  3. Lovely skirt in a very pretty fabric - just right for summer!

  4. Oh! I love this outfit! Very pretty, and looks comfy too. Plus, how great that the fabric already had the black on the border.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each and every one.
