Hey everybody! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I had a very productive one! I got some recording done for new sewing videos, caught up on blog posts (YASSSS), watched some football, and of course Sunday worship! It was just what I needed to get this week started off right! Today I’m sharing this maxi skirt that I made and shared with my newsletter subscribers last month (I said I was catching up lol) and it’s become an unexpected favorite! Let’s get into the details!
Pattern Used: I used Simplicity 8923 for this maxi skirt! I made View A on the pattern.
Pattern Description: Simplicity Sewing Pattern S8923 Misses' Pull-On Skirts in different lengths. *description from Simplicity website.
Pattern Sewing Level: This is an easy to sew skirt and I would say a beginner could be successful at making it.
What size did you cut?: I cut the size 20 for this skirt.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were! I had no issues with the instructions or the illustrations for this pattern.
What did you like or dislike about the pattern? I really liked the style of this skirt with all the godets. Before constructing it, I underestimated how long it would take to sew and install them all, plus finishing the seams. But that not really a dislike, just me thinking it would be a quick sew. While it is an easy skirt, it does take time to get it done.
Did you make any pattern alterations: I made no adjustments to this pattern.
Where did you purchase the fabric(s)? I purchased both fabrics from Joann. They are both Rayon and can be found in the Silky Print section. Before sewing them together, I was a little worried how they would look together, and honestly while I was sewing it, I almost trashed it! LOL! But once I styled it and photographed it, I really like the fabrics together! Thats why I said it’s an unexpected favorite! It’s giving off boho vibes! Love it!
Did you record a sew along for this pattern? Yes I did! The video is an exclusive sew along available to all my newsletter subscribers. If you’d like to watch and follow along with me, sig up for my free monthly newsletter here!
Would you sew it again? Yes I would! It’s a really cute maxi and I’ve gotten a lot of wear out it already!
Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely!
Well that’s all for today! Thank you so much for stopping by! I ope you have a wonderful, blessed and productive week! Until next time,
