I made mine in a viscose remnant from Tessuti’s remnants table. It has a nice drape and will be perfect for summer.
I like the simplicity of this skirt, yet the pattern has 2 lengths, 2 pocket options (slanted or curved) and 3 hem options, so it’s quite versatile. You can mix and match easily – I used the View A hem (gently curved) but added the slanted pockets.
I had no worries sewing this up – pattern testing for resizing is the easiest as all the instructions don’t change!
All the deets:
Pattern: SewDIY Lela Skirt (formerly the Baseball Skirt) (View A)
Size: 16/18/20 (ish)
- Cut a 20, graded to 18 in the hips
- Added 2″ length
- Took some more width out of the sides which probably took it back to an 16 hip?
Fabric used: Drapey striped viscose (from the remnant table at Tessuti Fabrics ages ago). I had a 1.5m piece (135cm wide) and that was more than enough.
Like it? Wearing it? YES and Not yet – it’s winter here!
Notes for next time:
- Nil – it was quick and easy to sew
- Definitely good to make again – could cut back to a 16/18. Will still need lengthening, but could be slightly shorter.
