I decided to try the skirt pattern for New look 6470, since I liked how my top came out last week. I am glad that I did. Not only was it a quick sew, but it is a great addition to my work wardrobe. Now if I only had more solid color tops to match....time to get to sewing! lol
Here are the details:
Misses knit skirt and tops.
8 to 18. I made the 18.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. Of course it is pretty hard to be complicated with 2 pieces and an elastic waist! *grin*
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
For a simple skirt, it still has a nice design that makes it a nice wardrobe addition. It was really easy to put together and it lends itself to a variety of fabric choices.
An abstract charmeuse fabric that I had in my stash leftover from making my first infinity scarf. I purchased it from Walmart for a couple bucks per yard.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Similar to the 6470 top I just made, I was a little short on yardage. To compensate, I cut the bottom part of the flounce in a size 10.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will definitely make this again and recommend it to others.
A great pattern that gave me an immediate compliment the minute I walked into the door.
