High Waist Pencil Skirt Tutorial REVIEWED by Kelly H.

Hi Darlings! I am always so excited to see my tutorials reviewed because it gives me insight in how to improve or add or adjust and it is always GREAT to see someone as fabulous as Kelly showing us all that feeling great and looking great does not only come in a size 2 

ROCK IT! She did an amazing job and I love the denim fabric choice. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us Kelly! xoxo



Skirt Tutorial Reviewed 



Pattern Description: High Waist Pencil Skirt

Pattern Sizing:You draft the pattern according to your measurements

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  I think so.


Were the instructions easy to follow? I have watched a lot of sewing/crafting videos over the years.  I continue to be impressed by Mimi’s teaching style as she walks you through every step and tells you why you’re doing what you’re doing in simple easy to understand terms.  Mimi has produced another winner.  


What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  The tutorial is full of techniques and manages to give you all the information you would typically learn in a sewing 101 series yet presents it in a way that is so matter of fact and encouraging that you don’t even realize you’re learning intermediate techniques.   Pattern drafting, fitting, topstitching, edge stitching, the COOLEST, EASIEST invisible zipper insertion technique known to man (this alone makes the video worth the price) are just a few of the techniques you’ll learn in this tutorial.  


Fabric Used: Stretch Denim

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Not necessary since the pattern is custom


Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?  Honestly, I don’t know what to be happier about, my perfect skirt, how much use I will get out of this pattern or the unlimited options that can be created using the basic skirt pattern.  


Conclusion:   This will be my TNT pencil skirt pattern
