pattern review-skirt smarts

by Hannah

It’s so satisfying to find a pattern that fits every time. I can’t get enough of this adorable pencil. This pattern is a great basic shape to have and it’s incredibly easy to alter. As you can see, I’ve left off the ruching because I like clean simple lines. It only takes only an hour to sew and 3/4 yd. of fabric!

There are some photos below to show all of the different closures I’ve done. My favorite is the invisible zipper. The first one I made was in wool. I made a linen version for a wedding this summer and the Robert Kaufman Essex for everyday. Versitile and simple. I love it. There’s a sample hanging in the shop that I made from Robert Kaufman railroad denim. Come visit!
