This is the pattern envelope description: Full wrap skirt with graduated hem, and attractive cascades along the hemline. Aimed at a beginner level this skirt is perfect for every day wear, but also dramatic enough for a special occasion. Pattern includes three different waistband options (button up, front tie and back tie), and instructions for optional lining for sheer fabrics.
It takes quite a bit of fabric (3 7/8 yards for 45" in fabric) because of the bias-cut layout.
It sewed up quickly, even with the French seams. The instructions were clear, and it's suitable for beginners as the pattern indicates.
It's supposed to hit mid-calf at the longest length in the back, and mine hit ankle length. I'd like it to be shorter next time.
Pattern: Cascade Skirt by Megan Nielsen
Fabric: Cotton gauze
Size: XS and no adjustments
Thoughts: This skirt is lovely and comfortable. I'm wearing a slip with this one because my fabric is slightly see-through and it gives me more coverage if the front gets a mind of its own and opens. There's an option for lining the skirt.
Next Time: I'll shorten it considerably. I'm thinking a nice jersey would make an awesome everyday skirt.
