I started Simplicity 8126 yesterday but due to sewing when I was tired had to take it all apart and start again today. I’ve really wanted a great wrap around skirt so I was excited for this one!
So today after picking apart the whole thing, I finally had my skirt! It ended up looking better on my mannequin then on me. Not that it’s awful, but just a little too full of a skirt with the pleat also in it. I added a button hole in the waistband to pull one of the ties through. The instructions had them just crisscrossing in the back and I liked this way better, I think it comes out neater.
I like it but it’s not my favorite. I would maybe make it again but I think I’d rather have a less full wrap skirt without a pleat in the front. I still really love wrap skirts though! Read more about it Here!
