2/2008- #20 Drawstring Skirt Pattern Description
Two layered maternity skirt with overskirt with drawstrings encased in the side-seams Which view and size did you make?
I made the non-maternity view. I made my own size, Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes If not, why?
- Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes If not, why?
Just make sure you don't get cocky and read them first. Or you might end up serging the side seams together and not leaving enough seam allowance to form the drawstring casing. Ask me how I know! What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Love the style! Nothing I don't like. Fabric used
Muslin and Linen Look Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
I actually used my own skirt pattern for this, with a yoga waist. I just used their instructions for the drawstring part. So I guess, take my review with a grain of salt. Would you sew this pattern again?
No Would you recommend this pattern to others?
Yes Any additional comments
I probably wouldn't make this again, it's such a distinct style. I love it, though.
