Description

This is a plus-size pattern that I resized down a bit and made it in brushed wool. The main change that I made was to eliminate the decorative hem stitching. I’m not sure if I did the lining in the manner intended by the instructions – they were rather confusing. I decided to put the facings between the skirt and the lining. I’m pleased with the skirt for the most part, but it was a lot of work. I ended up doing a lot of finishing details by hand. Also, the instructions on lining the vent were vague and I had to figure this out myself.
The style should be flattering on almost any figure, but is (I think) very good for those of us without a big difference between the waist and hip measurement. The brushed wool was a little tricky to use – the photo detail shows how it is woven on the reverse side – and it stretches a bit. This pattern would be best made in a fairly sturdy fabric that does not fray easily.

Brushed wool, unknown fiber satin lining fabric, YKK invisible zip, Clover hook & eye
