A new skirt using Mcalls pattern 5430. I really like this pattern, but it took me more than than an hour it said it would take. I probably should have read through the instructions first before just sewing away and then wondering how the band was spposed to work.
I used some Amy Butler that was not as drapey as the fabric used on the pattern cover, but I still like it. I didn't put the pockets on which I think would have looked a bit odd with the big print. I think pockets would work better with a fabric with a smaller pattern.
I'd definitely recommend the pattern and am sure I will make a few more this summer.
