I decided on New Years Eve to zap up a skirt to wear out and had luckily found some scuba fabric in Fabrics Galore’s sale – I loved it so much bought it in 2 colour ways!
Fabric: Scuba from Fabrics Galore.
Notions: stretch needles, Mara 120 thread, elastic.
Pattern description: pencil skirt sewing pattern for stretch fabrics – also included is a pattern for woven fabrics.
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, the pattern is really well written and so easy to follow. Looks just like the photograph.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern: I love the super simple stretch skirt pattern and is a brilliant quick make.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others: Yes, Ive made 4 stretch skirts with this pattern so far – although they have not all been for me.
Conclusion: A wonderful simple make, so easy to wear and brilliant as a wardrobe staple. I hemed the scuba on my machine and it worked well. Also used the stretch elongated zig zag for the main stitch and zig zag for the elastic casing. If you haven’t tried the Maker’s Atelier patterns, do they are really well written and wonderful wearable styles.
