Simplicity 8126



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!

  • So pretty. I’m a fan of wrap skirts too. The print you chose is lovely.

  • It does look good on the manni, but those front pleats can be hard to carry off – especially combined with gathers, as you say! Still, nice proportions, and I like your decision to carry the tie to the inside (and the execution of it).

  • Your skirt is lovely and I like your choice of fabric.
