It would come as no surprise to anyone who has made one of Nicole Mallalieu's many bag/purse or hat patterns that her A-line skirt pattern would be very well put together.
I did a sewalong a while back using the "Sew What' skirts book but if I had this pattern at that time it is what I would have used for all of them - without a doubt.
The skirt just 'fits', the way a skirt should!
No gaping waistline, no big bumps over the bum - everything clean and comfortable and correct - just the way I like it!
I know I will be getting lots of wear from this skirt this summer.
I adore this fabric, it's from the Amy Butler 'Love' range.
I intended it to be a tunic but felt the motif's were too large once I got it and I was worried where on my chest those large medallions may have ended up...
The only dilemma - what length!!???
The bottom of this skirt is simply overlocked ready for me to hem - but at what length??
Let me know your skirt length thoughts - how much should I be taking off the bottom???
Oh, and please excuse the fact that I should have ironed this before I showed you...
Do yourself a favour and grab this pattern - then make 'em plain, make 'em panelled, make 'em long make 'em short!
It's all you need to get your summer wardrobe sorted.
