Description

It feels so good to sew again. Between a bout of personal illness, the holidays, and 80 hours weeks at the hospital, it’s been months since my sewing machine and I got to spend some time together. I thought I would start simple with McCall’s 6570. It was easy as advertised, but what hadn’t occurred to me when I saw the original pattern was that it’s actually a full circle skirt. Which means lots and lots and lots and lots of hemming. Don’t get me wrong, I love circle skirts, but I was unprepared.

I ended up deciding I didn’t like the super wide waist band, so I cut it down to half the width. I also omitted the tulle ruffle on the lining because I wasn’t sure how much extra bulk the skirt could take. Otherwise, it’s a circle skirt plain and simple, and you can never really go wrong with a circle skirt :-)

Material Notes

Polyester blend plaid print and black sateen.

    Very nice skirt! Have yet to make one. Hang in there with the hospital work hours. It does eventually get better. Been there, done that.
