Did it look like the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Kinda, I have had this pattern for a very long time and to be honest I don't actually use it anymore. I have drafted my own from it. I eliminated the darts and put the zipper on the side.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Nothing stands out, it was easy to follow and easy to sew.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: Like I said, I moved the zip and added my own lining. I also added a centre front and back seam.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, this is a great pattern for a simple skirt. I tend to always make it A-line. I only use cotton for my linings as it is just to hot and at time humid here to try anything else.
I have mostly made my lining free hanging and approx 5 - 6cm shorter than the skirt. I am going to try a different lining technique next time and do it bagged.
