Pattern Description: High Waist Pencil Skirt
Pattern Sizing: You draft the pattern according to your measurements
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? I have watched a lot of sewing/crafting videos over the years. I continue to be impressed by Mimi’s teaching style as she walks you through every step and tells you why you’re doing what you’re doing in simple easy to understand terms. Mimi has produced another winner.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The tutorial is full of techniques and manages to give you all the information you would typically learn in a sewing 101 series yet presents it in a way that is so matter of fact and encouraging that you don’t even realize you’re learning intermediate techniques. Pattern drafting, fitting, topstitching, edge stitching, the COOLEST, EASIEST invisible zipper insertion technique known to man (this alone makes the video worth the price) are just a few of the techniques you’ll learn in this tutorial.
Fabric Used: Stretch Denim
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Not necessary since the pattern is custom
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Honestly, I don’t know what to be happier about, my perfect skirt, how much use I will get out of this pattern or the unlimited options that can be created using the basic skirt pattern.
Conclusion: This will be my TNT pencil skirt pattern
