Pattern Review Vogue 2951 the skirt
96% Cotton 4% Lycra
Was 12.00 Now 6.00
Prewash: Cold water wash; Dry on perma press cycle
There was very little (like 1/4″) shrinkage, but you will need to press the wrinkles out!
Notions: thread, 9″ invisible zipper, lining (for the waistband facing), Fusi knit interfacing, stay tape, Universal needle size 12
Alterations: I cut a size 12 for the front and a size 10 for the back and that was it!
Construction: I only have a couple of things to say about the construction because the skirt was just that easy to make. First, I did change the order of construction. The instructions would have you put the zipper in last and I don’t like that. I constructed the skirt front complete with the facing and did the same for the back. Then I sewed the sides seams, turned the facing to the inside and tacked the facings down. Second, was matching the print at the pocket. I completed the tucks on the skirt front and attached the pocket bag.
Place the skirt on the fabric matching the print.
The side front is now a perfect match.
The finished skirt
Conclusion: This is a fashion forward skirt that is very easy to make. I would make this again in a tropical weight wool for fall.
