Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:


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

I do plan to sew this again maybe in a linen next time.


I made this skirt about a month ago and have found that it has become one of my faves in my closet. I would highly recommend this pattern. Great pattern for beginners . Give it a try yourself!

Thought since I have been sewing alot for myself lately that maybe I should make something for my sweet husband(.poor guy never gets anything made for him) He always needs new shirts and pants for work so today before I left work I picked up a couple of patterns.



  1. I love this pattern and wear my skirt all the time. I really like your version and the print you picked out! Definitely a winner!

  2. Gorgeous skirt - just right for summer!

  3. So cute!! How have I missed this pattern?? Love the print you used. It looks so fresh!

  4. Lovely skirt and just added it to my pattern list. Mccall patterns go on sale this weekend at joanns for.99.

  5. Cute skirt! Good luck with your swim suit.

    I'm also curious to see how the sewing for your husband goes. I always have good intentions to sew for my hubby, but I don't get around to it very often.

  6. I love the skirt in that fabric! :)

  7. What a beautiful skirt! I love the one that I make, really trying to find the perfect wrap skirt. Only problem with mine is that it is made of 1 pc of at least 58" fabric (cut on the bias). There are so many cute 44" fabrics that I'm trying to find a pattern that is this flattering that I can use this measuremnt. What is the fabric width size for this pattern? Erika

  8. I can not seem to figure out the waistband section # 4 to 5 , and then connecting it? It must be me
