Vogue 8980











Pattern Description: Skirt has wide waistband, side front seams, pleated side front and back, narrow hem and back zipper. B: band overlay. C: tie ends.

Pattern Sizing:(6-8-10-12-14 

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?Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like the fact that it comes together quickly and the front fullness. Nothing to dislike its a pretty simple skirt.

Fabric Used:Ankara Cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:A bunch  User error though. The sizing was too small so I added a good two inches, only to realize I had to take it in a bunch. 

Would you sew it again? Hmn.. Probably not-I could'nt see Would you recommend it to others?

Conclusion: This is a pretty solid pattern. If I were to make this again I would bring the zipper all the way to the top of the skirt. The pattern calls for taking the zipper to the waist band then using about 3 hook and eyes to snap the waistband in place. Taking the zipper all the way up would have been better imo.
