Me Made Skirt

I have a very quick simple make done.

I had some left over black corduroy fabric from another project I had made, and I have had the Mccalls M7022 skirt pattern in my pattern stash for about a year, so I decided to make the simplest skirt. Version e.

You can purchase the pattern in most UK fabric stores and online. Here is a link to Minerva crafts where you can purchase the pattern and browse the many fabrics they have in stock.

Now I am not an experienced sewists more a enthusiastic beginner, with a few more curves than necessary for my short height.

I made the 20 size and found the pattern fairly straight forward but for beginners I think the zipper placement and instructions could have been explained easier for total newbies.

I made it straight out the packet with no alterations as this was going to be a wearable muslin.

I am overall happy with the outcome, waist is comfortable, maybe a little loose by about 1", tends to sit on my stomach but not tight at all - I am on medication that leaves me a little bloated at the moment.

No major problems and only 4 pattern pieces to cut out. (9 fabric cuts, 3 interfacing cuts) I reckon its doable in 2-3hours max.
