I actually made this about 2 weeks ago, but never got around to taking a picture of it! When I saw this pattern, it reminded me of a skirt I’d made several years ago, pre-Sofia. It was dark denim with a red tint on the wrong side. It had red bias tape on it somewhere as well. I got the idea to make another one, and here it is!
Since I can’t seem to apply bias tape right, I included some contrast by topstitching with bright pink thread. Here’s the pattern, McCall’s 5430:
Note that it says “1 hour skirt.” They are so full of it. It was more like a 3 hour skirt! Maybe the people at McCall’s were high on caffeine that day and sewing on an industrial, but I had neither of those advantages. Since I have a hard time with bias seams stretching out, I treated the pockets as appliques and stitched them to the skirt on all sides. I don’t use pockets anyway. I just like how they look on this skirt.
I think it’s a good pattern, and I’ll hang onto it in case I ever want another one. Here’s the review on PR.
