Finished: Hip Skirt

Since the graduation, I've been so productive ! I finished my outfit, made this skirt for Daughter and drafted a skirt pattern (also for Daughter, but more on that later). All this, and I'm not even on vacation yet!!!

Pattern Description:
Circle skirt with wide waistband/yoke, intended to be worn on the hips.

Pattern Sizing:
8 - 22

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?
These instructions were SO easy!

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the fact that this skirt can me made, traced, cut, sewn and hemmed, in an afternoon. One could probably make two in a day.

Fabric Used:
100% cotton

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
None, but some people may want to add length.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This is definitely a sew again.

My poor, neglected daughter had nothing to wear to church because her selfish mom never sews for her (boo hoo). But, if I can get her to select more fabric, she will have one or two more of these easy skirts. I think it would be very cute with a contrasting yoke/waistband as illustrated on the pattern envelope. The pattern includes three other styles which I hope to make.


  1. Very cute skirt! Fast & easy sewing with great results.

  2. Very nice! I'm sure your well-mannered DD was very appreciative. My DD, however, will not wear the beach coverup I made because it makes her shoulders look "manly." Back to making stuff for me, me, me!

  3. So summery and cute! At least now she has one new skirt to wear.
