I used Simplicity's pattern 2258 b/c the skirt had pockets!
Here is my product
Problems I had:
- I did not understand the pocket park in the instructions. My pockets are actually the wrong way but I fixed it!
- I also messed up my length b/c i did want to have a work skirt but things got hairy. I wound up making my own length
- Brocade can be tricky to sew! It wants to slip and move and I got agitated at times. Additionally, I could have used a better needle.
-Also I probably needed to sew the next size under. It is a little too big on me.
All in all, I liked the end product. Even though I didn't use it for work, I still will be able to use it for non-work activities. I really was worried at the end, then I ironed it and it got better. I calmed down. but right before the picture I must have done something because it has a line! LOL!!
Will probably use this pattern again one day, not anytime soon. Maybe I would like it with a different fabric, and tighter.
And today for some reason it looks like my skirt is wearing a tie. Again it will probably be a while before I do this pattern again. And it will be a while before I sew brocade!
