New LooK 6570
Wardrobe pattern with trousers, skirt, top and jacket. I made D - SKIRT
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes- except the skirt appears longer in the pattern envelope
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes - did not use them much though
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
lovely flared gored skirt - quick and easy
It is unlined but for this fabric that is not a problem. The next skirt I make will be fully lined - I will not need the twill tape at the waist if I am lining.
The rest of the cotton twill/drill? from making these shorts - fabric stash busting
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Flared from 14 at waist to 16 at hips
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes I will sew it again, but I plan to make it about 6" longer before making it up again.
Yes I would recommend it
This was not really the right fabric (too stiff) for a lovely flowing flared gored skirt... but I was testing out the pattern and using up the stash. I have the fabric ready for the next skirt (something which has been in the stash for over a year).
