Simplicity 1760 Pattern Review

Yesterday I was extremely productive. I cleaned off my cutting table which involved putting away about 21 yards recently purchased that had already been washed and dried. Next I sewed another pair of leggings which only took about 30 minutes to sew. Finally I sewed a skirt that now only needs to be hemmed and it'll be ready to go. Doesn't that sound productive?

Pattern Description:
Misses' skirt in two lengths
Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Exactly


Were the instructions easy to follow?
I never even looked at them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I thought the center lace pattern was particularly interesting
Fabric Used:
A polyester blend from my stash
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a short version but added two inches. I should have added three because as it is I only have a one inch hem. I added hem tape
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will absolutely sew another. I'll have a black version before the month is out.
Super easy and stylish. I plan to wear it with the Vogue 8815 peplum top.

 I'm already starting on another skirt. Butterick 5566. Stay tuned.


  1. The fabric is really pretty and the color will look great on you. Enjoy your new skirt!

  2. What a beautiful skirt and a great combo! I'm loving that color and the panel - awesome!

  3. Beautiful skirt,I love the center front lace. A lovely combo

  4. I, for one, think this beautiful creation belongs in the Carnival of Skirts. What a beautiful design!

  5. That's a terrific skirt. Very nice. I just went back a couple of posts to see if you went to the Expo this year. Since I see no posts about it, I assume you didn't. Neither did I.
