Sharing a quick review of a simple pull-on knit skirt today, one you might recognize if you were at the most recent PR Weekend! It's part of the wardrobe pattern New Look 6977 -- a pattern that I've made another skirt from, nearly four years ago apparently, and said then that I wanted to try the other options. At this rate I'll be retired before I try all the pieces in this pattern!
In any case, here's the quick straight skirt. I made a couple of changes - added side seam pockets cut from cotton broadcloth (non-stretchable) and cut the waist at 16 and hips at 18 (I didn't want it to cling). I should've reread my first review because the waistband was far too large. The pattern is too straight up & down for my shape, so I unpicked the waistband as much as I could at the sides and stitched it back down at an angle, to basically give me a 14 waist. But if I wasn't so lazy and had completely removed and resized it, it would fit better than it does. However, since I never wear it without a shirt over it (nothing tucked in for me) I figured it was "good enough" for a quick skirt.
I also changed the procedure when sewing the waistband. Instead of the casing + elastic method I used Jalie's Eleanore waistband process of stitching down the elastic at the edge of the top fold first and then folding the waistband & attaching. It's so much more secure and lies flat mostly, if it is the right size in the first place ;)
I used a nice thick stretchy poly knit from Fabricland that was calling out to be a fun skirt, and got the stripes mostly matched at the side seams. This is a cheery and very comfy skirt despite the slight fit issue I had with it due to my own shape compared to the very straightness of the skirt. Now I'll have to try some of the other options in this pattern.......
