The Leopard Print Skirt
Pattern Description: Close-fitting skirt with elastic waist and side slit. 2 lengths. I made view B
Pattern Sizing: I made a 16 at the hips and 14 at the waist.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn’t really need them. This was an easy make with only 3 pieces.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Initially I wasn’t sure I’d like this style on me because of my full thighs. It doesn’t fall straight from the hips….it definitely pegs in at the hemline…but once it was completed and styled I love it.
Fabric Used: I used Neoprene.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No changes to the pattern were made except I sewed the slits at the height that I visually liked.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I’m not sure that I’ll make another but I’ll hold on to the pattern just incase I need to make a replacement leopard print skirt. I would recommend it if you like this style.
Easy and Stylish!
Victoria Beckham Inspired Turtleneck
Firstly I found this pattern at Walmart under the Name of Mccalls but it’s the exact same pattern. I think it cost me less than $3.
Pattern Sizing: I cut a medium and grated to a large at the hips
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? No. I used it to create a Victoria Beckham inspired design. The neck height has been increased and the sleeves have been redesigned.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that the size lines are separated. I love that it also has shaping at the waist. I hated the neck it was shorter and fuller than I like mine but this was an easy fix. I decreased the width and increased the height to my liking. I probably should have raised the neckline but I didn’t…and it came out great.
Fabric Used: Fleece Lined Jersey that I purchased from the Fabric Joint. It’s such a nice fabric with a wonderful drape. I’ve used it in 3 other projects recently.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: As mentioned above I changed the neck and sleeve
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes. Ive made another with a stretch crepe with bishop sleeves. I definitely recommend this pattern but as stated by others before me, you may have to make some alterations but nothing too complicated.
