44-52. I traced a 48, but I added 3/4 of an inch at every seam allowance, including center back, so I added 4.5 inches.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Sorta. I was so scared mine would be small that I made it very large. Because the knit has a nice drape to it, I decided not to take it in, but next time, I’ll use a slightly bigger seam allowance. I didn’t get the bottom of the skirt in the picture, but to someone who knows about pegging, it looks pegged. If you didn’t know about pegging (ie nonsewer), it looks like a straight skirt.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
NONONO. They were terrible. I used a Kwik Sew back vent skirt instructions for the back vent. After that, it was just sew the sides and fold over the waistband. The instructions called for a lining, and maybe if I used a lining, I might have understood the instructions.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
LIKE: I like pegged straight skirts.
LIKE: It’s nice and long. I like my skirts ankle length.
LIKE: It’s out of knit, so it’s very comfortable.
DISLIKE: The instructions were awful.
100% polyester stretch knit, “moleskin” I think, in a blue and brown print.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I made it much larger than the pattern, and I think it is big. Next time, I try it a little smaller. I didn’t use the instructions.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I’m going to make it again. It’s very easy to sew.
Comfortable, attractive knit skirt.
