Pattern Review: Kirstin’s Skirt

Available for purchase here. I suppose this is more of an ebook, really.
I loved the waistband. I’ve never made one this style before, but I’ll definitely be trying it again. The way you finish the bottom of it before gathering and attaching the skirt practically eliminated the annoying mess of threads you usually get.
I’d also never hand pleated a skirt before, but I’ll be doing that again too.
The directions were clear and easy and the skirt went together quickly. I had to run out for thread (how on Earth did I run out of brown?) and ric rac and still sewed this up in an afternoon.
Hopefully it fits the recipient. Campbell wouldn’t hold still, so I’m not sure. :o)
