I’ve had this pattern for quite some time but for some reason never got round to using it, big mistake as I love it. The empire line and A line skirt suit my straight up and down shape perfectly and I made view B as it’s quite a trendy silhouette at the moment. I used an organic cotton Poplin from Spotlight in Singapore which is not one of the suggested fabrics but it was ok. I’ve never worked with this fabric before but I love how easy it is to sew with especially after the silk chiffon on my shirt project. I loved it so much that I bought some more for another summer dress which I’m currently working on.
This pattern is very easy and I could have completed it in a couple of hours if I’d had a zipper and elastic to hand. The instructions are easy to follow but it is quite short which I didn’t realise until I had already cut it out. I decided to do a faced hem which actually worked really well!
I will definitely use this pattern again, perhaps one of the other views next time though and in a fabric with more drape.
