Pattern Review: Simplicity 2414 (Look at me in my short skirt)

Hello Everyone.....HAPPY SEPTEMBER!!!

We are finally in the month of September and will be saying so long to summer real soon. Even though summer is ending, I am still happy because that means fall is coming. I love fall!!! I made another summer skirt though and typed up a quick review. Hope you all enjoy! 


PATTERN REVIEW: SIMPLICITY 2414

Pattern Description: Misses Skirt/Pants

Pattern Sizing: 16-24

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did!

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, once I figured out how to gather. 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the pattern, it was easy to lay out and once I figured out how to gather it was super fast.

Fabric Used: Knit, very very beautiful material.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I had a border print so I laid it out in such a way that all elements were included in the skirt.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I would sew again, but if I did the short skirt I would add another tier. I would recommend to others. 

Conclusion: In conclusion I enjoyed this pattern. I will probably make again next year but I would add some length. It came out kind of short.

Getting ready for dinner!

This skirt came together rather quickly. It was my first time gathering and my mom was a great teacher. Now, I know how to gather material and it felt great learning a new technique. Only problem is that the skirt came out so short. I am hard headed and didn't listen to my mom but yeah she was right too short. Fortunately, I have enough material to add another tier. I'm not about that booty hanging out life. 


Love the material, it came out great!
Until next time, thanks for stopping by. OAN: I got the fabric online from Sew Blessed.
