It’s been ages since Cris last shared her latest make. For those who don’t know, Cris and I started sewing at the same time. We met at a local sewing class back in 2009, have a share ownership of our overlocker and spend loads of time together. Cris is a fellow Brazilian. Now over to her…

Will you make it again? yes, definitely maybe in a smaller size, child age 6, for my niece!
What did you particularly like or dislike about this pattern: I like it because it is so easy to make and I had done before the same pattern and at the time, I changed the waistband for an elastic band. This is the 3rd time I sew this pattern.

Conclusion: I can’t think of anything I would change it. I love this skirt. So easy and quick to make. I don’t have so much time to sew so I appreciate projects I could do quickly. I hemmed by machine.
