And yes, it's Friday!! One of these days I am going to get caught up. I'm determined!!!
Rather than wait and post this next week, I wanted to go ahead and get it posted as I would like to use this pattern for some upcoming drafting posts and I wanted you to have access to the pattern prior to the posts.
This is the Libby A-line skirt from Tessuti Fabrics, a free pattern. It's a simple pattern, but a very nice one. I love the fit. The pattern is marked for 3 lengths, the longer length that you see below,
The light in the house was horrible, so I ran out to take this picture. Wow, is it cold outside, 16 degrees!!! And the wind is blowing so it feels even colder. The picture isn't the best, but at least you get an idea of the length. Below is a better picture of the skirt.
The pattern is of course a downloadable pattern. You may also purchase the pattern for $12.00, but I don't see why you would. It's not a large pattern and it goes together quickly and easily. As you can see, there are only 4 pattern pieces. In the above picture, you can see the extension for the longer version that I cut off. This would be a great pattern for someone who is just learning to sew. There are 2 darts in the back skirt, but none in the front. The front and the back are cut on the fold and there is a side seam zipper.
I lined my skirt. Something that I like to do when lining a skirt is cheat a little on the facing. I picked this up from a Threads article years ago.
HERE. I think you'll be just as happy with it as I am.
The skirt is a real winning combination, easy to make, goes together quickly, and fits well. What more can you ask from a pattern?!!
