This is the perfect pattern to start with if you are new to sewing!!! Lots of straight line sewing involved for practice. The hardest part would have to be the gathering but it’s relatively easy to master when you look up exactly how to do it. I had trouble with it as my thread was cheap & kept snapping.
I couldn’t find anywhere in the pattern where it mentioned what the seam allowances should be so I made up my own. I had to alter the hemband as a result but it wasn’t too difficult. All the cutting and sewing was a little tedious but the completion of the whole project was very quick. Don’t forget to have your iron & overlocker ready! The pattern doesn’t seem the mention it but you certainly need them if you want to have a perfectly finished skirt.
All in all the finished product looks GREAT & my daughter absolutely loves it!!!! So that’s a 10/10 from me.
Looking forward to making more now
