Insa Skirt Review
From the book
"Sew Clothes Kids Love"
By Sabine Pollehn and Nancy Langdon
This skirt I sewed up for my niece for her birthday. She is technically off the size chart for this book. However, with the elasticized waist and fuller skirt, it did not matter and made it a perfect fit for this fall birthday girl.
Pattern Description: Four gore double layered skirt. Yoke with Elasticized waist.
Pattern Sizing: 86/92 - 134-140. Like I said above though, I sized it up for her.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. There are so many variations and zing you can add on that no two skirts will look exactly alike though.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. There was nothing that slowed me down.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like that you can mix and match different fabrics and make it as over the top or subdued as you want. She is a little bit older and I thought would want a solid top and fun pop underskirt.
Fabric Used: The overskirt is a dark brown 21 wale cord and a green 21 wale with sparkles. The underskirt is randoms; 2 prints from Joann's and 2 from Hobby Lobby. As well as a burnt orange rick rack trim on the underskirt.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make changes really. I chose to add the vertical elastic gathering to the over skirt though.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I would sew it again and I probably will for Christmas for my two new younger nieces.
So I promised a giveaway for this book and here it is:
