What skirt will it be--

I pulled several skirt patterns today to decide on what the faux leather skirt should look like.  I still have not decided.  Here are some of my choices from pattern collection.
I have made this one twice and I love the fit of it.  Neither one were lined as the pattern did not call for it and the fabric used really did not need it.  I think with this faux leather I may want to line it.  If I do I will just make a simple lining without all of the pieces for this skirt.

I have made this one also with success.
And this one also.

I have a Hot Pattern skirt also that I am considering.  My success with this brand has not always been very good.  There is is also a Sandra Betzina one that I like as well but I would have to shorten it considerably.

Now for my color block skirt.  With all the patterns I have in my stash I did not find one that had a simple front piece with no waist band.  So I decided to draft one using Pattern Master Boutique 5.

I have not used this in some time so had to re-learn how to use several of the features. This is my first print of a classic skirt style with facings.
After printing and taping pages together, I then traced on to Swedish Tracing Paper to more easily test the fit by pin fitting.  After doing that and then pin fitting it was clear that I really needed to update my measurements in the program.  I also changed the style of the pattern to allow my being able to have a two panels in front and adjust so panels were asymmetrical.  I now need to trace and pin fit this new pattern.

I hope your weekend was one of pleasure and sewing.  More later.


  1. I like the first one, specifically the modeled skirt. However, I am sure whichever skirt you make it'll look great.

  2. I am leaning toward that one as I have the fit just right!
