Simplicity 2226, all done!

Here's my Simplicity skirt, all done!

So glad to have the Sew Along for this. It helped me have the confidence to tackle a "real" pattern pattern. Thanks, Anna!

And the finished result makes me so proud. It really is a garment. And I made it. Hard to believe!

Still need to insert the hook and eye closure. Other than that, she's all done!

Next time.... I'll make a smaller size. According to the package, I should have been a size 16. I made a size 14. In real life, I wear a 6 or 8. The skirt isn't falling off, but it isn't sitting as high as it should. Not as flattering as it could be. Next time, I'll try a 12.

That's it. Have a great weekend!

  1. it looks really good Krista! I love the purple. Where did you get those kick-ass boots?

  2. Sweet! I love the skirt and fabric you used!

  3. Looking good! I have a skirt I made a wee while ago that's suffering from similar 'far too big despite making the size I should be' issues, and I even made a muslin which seemed fine, oh well, live and learn!

  4. so cute i love the pockets!


  5. SUPER CUTE! I guess I'd be a 20 by that sizing chart. :/

  6. WOW! This looks wonderful--amazing!!!

  7. I had the same results that you but I like your skirt more than mine. I am going to take a bit more, about 1.5cm on each side because I think I am going to get a lot of use out of this skirt. I just hope with practice I get better and getting the right size!

  8. WoW!!!!! You look really cool! GREAT JOB!
