Nothing is more soft and comforting than wearing

New Look 6856 skirt which fits the bill of almost any dress code, falling just right at the knee. It's an A-line shape skirt with an elastic waist ensuring flexibility and a feel-good fit.


Pattern Description: Misses' knit skirts, pants and top.

Pattern Sizing: XS, S, M, L, XL.

View: C
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? With only 2 pieces... it was beyond easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The simplicity of the garment.

Fabrics Used: Lavender & Burgandy Print: Polyester/Lycra - Slate Blue: Cotton/Spandex -

Notions Used: 3/4" non-roll elastic

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: The pattern was perfect.
Would you sew it again? I still have to make skirts for my mom, so I will be pumping out a few more.

Thank you... for years I've always worn tailored skirts, but with the heat finally upon us - I wanted something easy and super comfortable and those skirts fit the bill.

What a nice wardrobe. You can mix and match throughout the summer. When the weather changes you can team the pieces up with others you already have.
