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.

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!|
