As much as I have bad-mouthed Simplicity 2258, I am now back in love with it. We, the pattern and I , have found common ground and all is well in my sewing room! This time around I made the skirt in a linen-like material that has been in my stash for awhile. The skirt is super easy. Well, it was easy according to the way that I made it. I was going for View C. At the last minute I decided to omit the ties and the band that the elastic is encased in to prevent any extra bulk around my stomack. So all in all , I just used the front skirt piece, pocket piece, and back skirt piece to make the skirt. I added 2inch wide black elastic as a waistbad for the skirt. I am very pleased with how it turned out and plan to make many more. I made a size 22 out of 60in fabric and I swear it only took maybe 1 1/8 yards. Oh yeah there will be more to come!! Don't you just love when you fall back in love with a pattern???
