I will admit that when I first picked up this skirt pattern, I did not anticipate how much I would love this design. This is the third version I have made of this skirt. Is it any surprise that it is a Marcy Tilton design? The Tilton sister have designed some of my favourite patterns.
What's left to say about Vogue 9060 besides I absolutely love how easy and comfortable this make is to wear. It is a well drafted pattern and the pieces fit to get perfectly.
I did, however, make some changes. Nothing too drastic. I reduced the width of the waistband and added an inch wide elastic just for the feeling of security.
The skirt is made in a black crepe knit found at Fabricland. It is a 100% polyester and it's easy to care for, machine wash and dry. Gotta love that. I sewed the seams on my sewing machine using the knit (lightning bolt) stitch and a walking foot.
Fabric: 1.8 metres $20.34 ($20.00 / metre - 50% off + taxes)
Elastic: 0.90 metres of red (I didn't have any black elastic and you can't tell, shhh!) 1" wide elastic $1.51 ($1.34 + taxes)
Pattern: Already priced out in previous versions
Thread: I'm going to say $4.00 to cover the cost of the sewing machine and serger threads.
