Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

It did! I eliminated the patch pockets, but other than that it worked perfectly.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Honestly, I didn’t really follow them. There’s only a few pieces to the pattern and it’s very easy to put together.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved this one! It went together very easily and it’s really flattering to my figure.

Fabric Used:
Cotton from JoAnn’s- it’s very thick and washes well.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn’t add the pockets- I thought they were distracting with the print I chose. I also think that I won’t cut the waistband on the bias next time. It made it stretch too much and I had to take it in.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will definitely sew it again! This is my TNT skirt pattern and I’ve got plans to make it several more times, both for myself and for costume work.

This is probably the best gathered skirt pattern I’ve found. It’s easy to cut, doesn’t take too much fabric (it helps that I’m short and I don’t need a long hem) and only took me about two hours to construct! I highly recommend this one.

leave some love!
