Pattern: Vogue 9060
Oh my, I love how comfortable this skirt is and how easy it was to sew!
The fabric is a recent addition to the stash that I found at Fabricland in a bin as cut pieces. I'm so glad that there was enough for this skirt. It is a textured cotton knit. Recently, there has been 50% off sales and I was able to whip this skirt up at a bargain price.
The pattern, Vogue 9060, is a newly released Marcy Tilton pattern from their Holiday/Winter line. And get this,
Skirt can be worn front to back and back to front.
Goodness, I love that description! And did I mention that it is comfortable? Oh so comfortable. The waistband is cut smaller than the skirt opening and there is no elastic. It has a fold over waistband in two different widths but I even went with a smaller width and have a 1" wide waistband. The pattern recommends using a waistband fabric that has a good recovery. And I find this is sufficient. Unless, I loose some weight I don't see any need for an elastic in the casing.
Along with the changes to the waistband I also omitted the topstitching.
I might have to make myself another one of these skirts. I like it that much.
