Pattern Review Vogue 2893, Skirt
88% Cotton 12% Polyester
Prewash: Dry Clean
Notions: thread, 9″ invisible zipper, Sheer Fusible Tricot interfacing, rayon lining, rayon hem tape, stay tape (for waist), size 12 universal needle
Alterations: I took in the waist 1/2″ on the back only by trimming 1/4″ off the side seam. I shortened the length at the hem by 1 inch. I also tapered the hem an additional 1/4″.
Construction Details: I traced a full skirt front, left back, right back, a full front yoke, a left back yoke and a right back yoke. I used the copier for the yoke patterns.
Matching the print is much easier with all of the individual pattern pieces.
Conclusion: I like skirts with yokes and the fabric was a dream to sew! I’ll wear this skirt with Simplicity 2560 reviewed here.
