Probably my favorite garment that I have sewn for Sara so far is this skirt. It is a simple pattern for a lined skirt, but with a lovely cut. I really like it a lot. The pattern is from oliver+s and it is one that I will use for sure many times.
The Pattern review:
Pattern Description: Oliver+s swing set skirt: A gathered skirt with elastic casing and drawstring, fully lined
Pattern Sizing: Size 4T for a four-year old.
Did it look like the original photo/drawing once sewed?: Yeah
Were the instructions easy to follow?: Yes, they are very clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?: I like the cut and the fit.
Did you learn anything new from this sewing project?: Well, it has been the first lined skirt I have sewn. The way of inserting the elastic was quite clever.
Fabric Used: polka dotted denim
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?: For sure. I will sew a winter version soon, and surely further versions will come.
To match the skirt I also made a bow hair tie for her, from the free pattern of oliver+s:
