    Love the pattern, but wanted it for my DIL, who is a beginner sewer, The pattern is for stretch, not sure if she is up to that yet, but I have a piece so she can practice first. She is also the size of a 10 year old. Some alterations will be neccessary.

  8. Jane (verified owner)

    This is a great pattern for a very wearable wardrobe staple. I made it out of black Ponte knit and I love it. It can be dressed up with a woven blouse or more casual with a knit tee, especially the Uvita. Itch to Stitch patterns are stylish, well-drafted, and have excellent instructions. Thank you for offering this free introduction to Itch to Stitch.

    This was a fun and easy sew, with nice clear instructions. It was my first time using an Itch to Stitch pattern and the fact that it was free made it a great way to acquaint myself with quality of the drafting & instructions. I definitely have my eye on several patterns to purchase after making this. PS – it’s also fun and comfortable to wear. I’m really pleased with how it came out.

    Woman, you have talent. After I’ve built my confidence and gotten a little more time to myself, I want to come back to your site. I’ve just got too many patterns to not try a FBA on SOME of them. That’s the problem I have in a nutshell: confidence, time and too many patterns needing an FBA. But you go on with your bad self creating patterns and I hope I’ll be back. God willing.

  98. Shirley (verified owner)

    I made this for my daughter-in-law and it took less than an hour. I loved the method of inserting the elastic. It was a bit short for her to wear to work (she’s a teacher) in the original version. She really likes the skirt so I will make it several more times, just a bit longer.

  99. Shirley (verified owner)

    I made this for my daughter-in-law in less than an hour. I LOVED the way the elastic was applied. I have just recently started to test Indie patterns. I have sewn for nearly 60 years and I’m learning new techniques from you youngsters. Thank you.

  4. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
