this skirt, so it has been in the stash at least a year and a half. Think my husband will collapse with the shock when he sees it as a skirt..
I used New Look 6570 again - but I added 5" to the length - I would have added 6" but I did not have enough fabric for that.
Jacket (with and without collar), trousers, cami top, skirt. I made SKIRT "D"
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes - but did not really need them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Nice shape - flared/gored skirt
Mystery "zigzag plush" stuff and synthetic taffeta lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
1. Added 5" to the length (it would have been 6" but I did not have enough fabric)
2. Added a lining
3. Put in an invisible / concealed zipper not a lapped zipper
***Not really an alteration... but this has LOTS of ease - my hip measurements would put me at an 18 but I sewed a 16 (which has 3" ease), the 16 fits really well. So take care with sizing ****
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is the second time I have sewn it so I think I will try some other patterns from the stash before using this again... but I do want to try the jacket next....
Well worth having this pattern!
