Pattern: McCall's 6333
Mods: Initially I added 4" to this pattern. When all was said and done, I lopped of two of the inches and took up a 2" hem. I'm 5'9" for reference. The instructions made me a little bit crazy and the only helpful thing I can say is this: Sew the elastic lines on the waistband accurately and don't serge/sew the elastic when attaching the skirt to the waistband. This will make you crazy. There will be weird, uneven bunching and you'll have to tear the entire thing apart.
Fabric: I used a linen (blend?) from Hancock Fabrics. I need to stop with the super-wrinkly cheap linen.
Pattern: Wiksten skirt
Mods: None! I think I made an XS because I wanted it to be high-waisted, but it turned out too small.
Fabric: Cotton chambray from Nuttall's - purchased during my brief stint working there.
The buttons aren't centered and I haven't sewn a tab at the top. I'll wear this more often when those things are fixed.
Pattern: Kwik Sew 3830 - View B
Mods: None. I think it's a size small.
Fabric: Lightweight denim
I really enjoyed making this skirt and think it's cute, but it's doing some really weird things at the waist. I think I need to take out some elastic.
Pattern: Simplicity 2413 (OOP??)
Mods: None. Size 8
Fabric: Black cotton twill from Joann's
I love the idea of a tulip/pegged skirt, but this skirt does some weird poofing. The back is kind of a mess. Maybe because my hands were in the pockets? I don't think it's super flattering either.
You might be wondering why my shorts are not done. I'll leave you with this:
