I purchased a black ponte skirt for one of my daughters back in the spring but I liked it so much, I kept it for myself (Bad Mom). I've worn it a few times and always seem to receive compliments so I thought I would make another out of a small piece of yellow ponte knit I had.
Originally, I wanted no waistband but couldn't find a pattern like that and didn't feel like converting a pattern (Lazy Mom). I found this skirt pattern that I liked WITH a waistband that had woven and knit options. I finished this about a month ago but never got around to photographing and blogging. It really has more of a summer vibe to it so I missed the boat for this year.
- McCalls 6402, View A
- Size 10 Ok, so I was a bit optimistic due to recent weight loss and a 12 might have made more sense but with some Spanx, it will be just fine. But I am KICKING myself that I didn't check the length. I'm a little over 5'3" so normally I have to shorten skirts / dresses but this one is SHORT. The length is ok for going out but I wouldn't be comfortable wearing in a business setting. I may make this again in a more conservative color for work but will add 2".
- Fabric: Yellow Ponte knit remnant I picked up at Banasch. I think it was only 3/4 yard.
- Conclusion: It was a little tricky matching the 4 points but I'm happy with the results. It went together fairly quickly. Mark thinks is looks "hot" so I'm calling it a success.
