I finally finished the Ginger skirt. Black is very hard to photograph, but it’s comfortable and has great clean lines.

A-line skirt with back zipper.
I cut a 10 at the waist and tapered to a 6 at the hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I read the first page of the instructions, then stopped reading and did my own thing.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like that it’s very versatile, and has great lines reminiscent of the 40s.
Black gabardine. Sewing with plain black always makes a really boring project, but these are the projects that get the most wear from my closet. Hopefully I can upgrade to plain red or plain dark green soon as a base color.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. I did the waistband/zipper differently since the directions looks confusing to me. I attached the waistband facing, then stitched in the ditch at the waistband to tack it down.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Awesome skirt. I can’t believe I waited more than a year to try this.
