What the pattern testers made and said
Diane – I was confused when I first saw the pattern piece, couldn't figure it out. Then when I saw how many pieces I had to cut, I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't just a cut 2 pieces kind of skirt! I was too excited to sew so didn't watch the video this time.
Emma – It was easy to print, assemble and cut out. I actually cut 5 pieces in pattern tissue so I could cut the 10 pieces on folded fabric all at the same time. I think this would look great as a maxi length too. I was quite happy adding my own SA as I decided to only add 0.5cm and overlock the panels together, and it came together really quickly.
Robin at The Pattern Tester – I was getting dizzy waiting for my husband to take the picture, when I was twirling. I definitely want to make this again in a more subtle print, or solid. I really like skirt that flows nicely, and love the feel of the light knit that this skirt requires. It was my first pattern where I had to add my own seam allowance, but the instructions are good, and the video is very helpful. Another nice, and easy pattern for the beginner. The skirt is very comfortable, and great for summer.
Linda – When I first saw the pattern I was really excited about making the skirt. It looked like the perfect summer skirt that can be dress up or down depending on your mood. Easy to make. After making and trying the skirt I was very happy with the results. I can see myself making more of those skirts. That would be the perfect pattern to grab, before you leave on holiday, and make 2-3 to take with you. I can see wearing this with flip flop during the day and a nice sandal for night! I love love love the way it moves. Makes me want to twirl all the time!!
Theresa at The DIY Page – Very cute. I was pleasantly surprised at how few pattern pieces there are. I absolutely love the way it looks and fits! I think it should be called the fast and flirty skirt because it makes up so quickly. Every time I am in the fabric store I am on the look out for right fabric to make another one to fill out my wardrobe. My best friend tried on my skirt and she said it reminded her of her cheer leading outfit. I wore mine to a concert with a black tank and a shawl and got several compliments.
Louise – Super easy! Love the fit. It is a print that has some sparkle to it which gives it some dimension. I know I will wear it a lot!!
