I haven't sewn for myself in quite some time and I am not good at making alterations when things don't fit, so I was THRILLED when this lovely skirt required no alteration!
However, the designer, Nicola, planned for the eventual occurrence of someone not fitting the pattern "exactly". There are instructions on how to upsize and downsize the length, making it easy to modify to fit individual sizes ("petite", "average" and "tall"). As with the original children's pattern, Nicola provided pattern pieces as well as a measurement chart for the fabric panels required for the skirt layers. The pattern uses "Layers" and "Bookmarks" to make it navigation friendly.
This skirt can easily be made into a shorter version as all that would need to be done is to leave off a couple of layers. I even saw some of the other testers use it as a strapless dress by pulling it up and adding a belt. So many possibilities! This skirt works great for any season of the year. I may have to make the knit version when I have spare time.
Please pardon the pictures. If I was more practiced with getting my picture taken, it would probably look better and I'd look less "stiff". *sigh*
