I did it! I made something for me. Except. This pattern runs pretty small. I followed the pattern and sewing directions to a T, and this came out about 4 sizes too small. My sister is about 4 sizes smaller than me, and she was able to put it on no problem. Ugh. What a bummer. I haven't decided if I am ripping it out and adding a panel, or putting it in the closest for a skinnier day. Ha! Here it is in all it's cuteness!
Overall, the pattern was a breeze. The skirt is six panels, with a waistband that is lined with fabric and interfacing, and a zipper. The directions were very clear too. I made a dress last december and those pattern directions were horrendous! My Home Ec Teacher friend couldn't even understand what they were asking!
