I love Textile Studio Patterns.
Their designs are classic, elegant and timeless.
Skirt Wardrobe 1103 -Pattern Review
Pattern Description: Now you can create those simple and pricey skirts you see in ready-to-wear. This pattern contains 3 pull-on skirts: An a-line, a four gore and a six gore.
Fabric Used: Triacetate/poly blend from Fabric Mart. It is a bit heavier than the fabric suggestions but worked perfectly for the formal look I was going for.
Suggested Fabrics: Each view has suggestions. I made View B: This 4-panel skirt drops from the hip with a slight flair. Designed for soft draping rayons and lightweight knits.
Pattern Size: XS – S – M – L – XL – XXL.
The pattern pieces fit together beautifully. The skirt is bit snug at the high hip but that is because of the heavy fabric, not the pattern.
Design Changes: I lengthened to floor length.
Sewing Notes: S/A 1/2″, rolled serge hem
Likes/Dislikes: Love the fabric, wish I had more. The skirt pattern couldn’t have been easier and ran true to size.
Tried and True (TNT), One-timer, or Nix This Pattern? TNT. I love this full length and will make some maxi skirts for casual wear.
I wish Textile Studio still carried fabrics. I have at least two boxes stuffed full of Marsha’s rayons, wools and knits. I’m only now becoming more and more willing to cut into them.
