    Love the everyday skirt, but think about sizing down
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 05/16/2016
    I am a beginning adult's garment sewer (usually quilt, sew small projects or girl's dresses) and I found this pattern to be clear, concise, and well written. I measured at a size M, and the first skirt I made I used that size-however-I found I had to take approx. 6 inches off the back elastic. Even so, there's a whole lot of fabric back there. Next skirt I decided to follow other reviewer's advice and go down to a small. PERFECTION! The elastic measurement was spot-on and now I have the most comfortable skirt I own - and I made it myself! :)

    The directions were great. First time that I have used a digital pattern. I made it in pretty Amy Butler pattern. The skirt was a bit big but that was my fault because I didn't take note of measurements. Next time I will make a size smaller

    Too much fabric in back
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 03/29/2016
    I really like this skirt, and the pattern. I had similar issues to other reviewers. I made the size Medium (which fit the size chart), and wished I had made a small. I ended up with way to much fabric in the back, and had to cinch the elastic really tight, which makes the back bubble out. Other than that, I thought it was a great pattern and a fun project!

    Great skirt
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 03/15/2016
    I just finished this skirt using a cotton poplin from Cloud Nine fabrics and am very happy with the result. The instructions were very easy to follow, and the sizing was perfect for me (I made an M since I fit somewhere between sizes). I found the length a bit short so made a false hem using bias tape, but that was easy enough to modify. I'm looking forward to making another one!

    Nice pattern, with unfortunate issues
    Reviewed by on 03/03/2016
    This gets stars because of the clarity of the instructions and the simplicity of how the pattern comes together.

    Like so many others, though, I ran into fit issues. My measured size matched the xs perfectly, so I went with that size on the pattern (shame on me for thinking I could get away without doing a muslin). The front and side panels look fine, but there is a comical amount of fabric in the back once it's gathered with the elastic. I'm now ripping out seams to take in the back panel drastically.

    The second issue is with the waistband. It's drafted as a rectangle, which would be fine if you wear the skirt at your natural waist, or if you have no inward slope above your dropped waist (1.5" below your natural waist, where the pattern says it is intended to be worn). I sewed the skirt to sit at my dropped waist, but since it's a straight waistband, it stands straight up vertically and gaps out because my waist continues to get smaller while the waistband does not. I'm going to have to do darts or hack something where the front waistband meets the elastic part to try to fix the gapping. It looks bad! It's interesting that the photos on this site have the skirt sitting at the natural waist so they don't show this problem, even when the pattern says the skirt is intended to have a dropped waist.

    This skirt is very flattering and was a sinch to whip up (due to well written instructions). I plan on making it in several fabrics. I would love to see a lining tutorial or add on so I can make this in a thin fabric as well.

    Everyday skirt
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 12/15/2015
    Easy and quick to sew. I enjoyed very much sewing the skirt, the instructions are very clear and good. the problem is that the waist band was to large for my size and I had to fix it by reducing a great part of the side panels. next time I will go down one or two sizes. I like the skirt: it is very comfortable and I love the pockets. Made it with wool fabric.

    Great pattern and super easy! I loved being able to download instantly and start sewing right away.
    Per a lot of other reviews, the sizing is generous. I had to trim down to keep it from looking sloppy.
    I'll definitely make again in a smaller size.

    Very easy and quick to sew. It was scarily large before I put the elastic in. Next time I might, not sure yet, make the back of the skirt slightly smaller to reduce the gathering a bit. Or I might just choose the next size down.

    Perfect pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/21/2015
    I have made 5 of these skirts and have another one under way. I have bought 3 patterns. One daughter is 5'10" size XL, another is 5'4" AND SIZE 0, I'm am 5'2" and size XL. The skirt looks good on each of us. It's easy to adjust between body types and the pattern directions are excellent. I've been sewing for 60 years and find this one of the most useful patterns I have every made. I have made almost all your little girl dress patterns too for my grandchildren, but because they outgrow them so fast, I'd rather sew something for practical wear. Love your classic style.

    Favorite New Skirt!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/17/2015
    This is my new favorite skirt pattern! The whole process from purchase to wearing was so smooth. I found the pdf easy to print and assemble. I love the way the pattern was printed, as it used much less paper than any other pdf pattern I've assembled. The skirt came together quickly and easily. I love the pockets and waistband. I do agree that the pattern runs big. I am usually between a 2-4 and went with the small. I do think next time I'll sew the x-small. I received so many compliments on it, I still plan to wear it; as it fits and is very comfy just a bit too full in the back. Thanks for such a easy and lovely staple to add to my wardrobe!

    Perfect skirt for pear shape figure
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/08/2015
    Finding a skirt pattern for a pear shaped figure is quite challenging but this skirt is perfect and sews together really easily. I was not sure if the pockets would add bulk and was considering omitting them but I'm glad I didn't. Definately don't size up even if you have a tummy or larger waist measurement, go by your normal size. I sewed it in a cotton lawn and it turned out great. I am a standard height of 5 foot 4 inches but did have to take up the hem by 1 1/2 inches for it to look right.

    I have made 2 of these now and wear them both all the time, they are super comfy and i love the pockets (i am a hands in pockets, looking for my handkerchief kind of gal). I have taken a star off as I also made a medium based on the size guide but the small is a much better fit for me. I even improvised a lining on the second one for easy summer wear. Great skirt very happy, give it a go but consider sizing down.

    Quick, simple, and flattering
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 10/12/2015
    I'm currently working on my second Everyday Skirt and waiting on fabric for a third to arrive. The construction is simple and the instructions are easy to follow. My only issue is that it seems to run big- I measured for the medium, but it was roomier than I wanted. I'm hoping the small is a better fit.

    I think it would be awesome if this came in a mini version for girls! I love the pockets on this piece and didn't see anything in the current O+S collection like it.

    Details Matter
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/31/2015
    Initially this pattern had more pieces than seemed necessary for a simple skirt, but those little bit made all the difference. The fit is great and the pocket make the skirt a real go-to item in my closet. I already have fabric for a second skirt ready to cut, and I love the chance to slip in a favorite fabric remnant for the pocket facing. Thanks for the attention to detail!

    A new favorite skirt pattern!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/24/2015
    I bought this pattern for my 25-year old daughter, who needs skirts in a little longer length suitable for her job as an elementary school teacher. Unfortunately I had to make it without her around to try it on before finishing, so I sent it to her with the elastic pinned in place so she can adjust it as necessary, and I'll stitch it in place in 6 weeks when I see her next. Once we get the sizing customized for her (she has a small waist compared to her hip size), I'm sure this will be made many times; nice pattern with unique but easy construction.

    I haven't made any patterns by this company before and it took me a few time seeing it on blogs before I bought it. I'm really glad that I did, it is a really simple pattern that looks great. I did have to try two sizes before settling on the smaller one of the two, which gives a nice fitted waist. I am loving the elastic waist as opposed to having to putting in zips and the pockets are really great. I've made a long and short version of this already and I'm sure there will be more to follow...

    Perfect casual skirt pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 07/08/2015
    I debated buying this pattern for a while and I am so glad I finally did! I'm not sure what some of the other reviewers are talking about with this pattern because it was a super easy pattern to follow and it turned out perfectly. I love the fit. I used the size chart and went with the size small, I fell right in the middle of the size range for the small. I didn't have to make a single change to the pattern either. The side panels make the skirt super flattering to wear and the elastic waist makes it easy to wear. I made it in a lightweight chambray. I am a newer sewist, and I was able to sew this skirt in less than two days with minimal sewing time. I can't wait to make more in lots of different prints. I would definitely recommend this pattern to the beginning and experienced sewist alike.

I am 72 and my 44 year old daughter was so impressed that she asked me to make her one too. Since she is younger and taller, adding 6 inches to the length and subtracting 6 inches from the waist measurement was easy. It's the best skirt pattern I've ever made.

    My new favourite skirt pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/16/2015
    Being a 50 something woman and dealing with a 50 something figure, I was getting discouraged by other skirt patterns that were either too bulky over the hips or hard to fit over my middle. This pattern was neither of these. The side panels and the elastic in only the back half of the waistband made this skirt fit my figure better than other patterns I have tried. I made my first skirt in a (well-aged) quilt cotton and the second in a cotton and linen blend. One change I did make with my second skirt was reducing the width of the back panel by a total of 2 inches to cut down a bit of the bulk caused by the heavier weight of the fabric. The sizing was right on and the directions were extremely easy to follow. Thanks, Liesl, for another wonderful pattern!

    I learned to sew 5 years ago using Oliver and S patterns for my children. Liesl and Co patterns have the same wonderful instructions! Regarding style, the style of this skirt is simply fantastic. I have tried several skirt patterns (2 Colette patterns, 1 burda style, to name a few), and have always been disappointed by the fit. So many a-line skirts are just simply too bulky around the hips. Liesl and Co addressed this issue brilliantly with the side panels, and yet it still remains very fast to sew. It took me only a couple of hours and I am no expert seamstress. With this pattern, I honestly don't know if I'll ever have to buy another skirt again! Thank you.

    Not good
    Reviewed by on 05/14/2015
    I have made this skirt twice. I made it once out of a drapey rayon and another time out of chambray. First, I had to lengthen the back pattern piece so that it matched with the front (you can find this adjustment if you search blogs). I knew this when I purchased the pattern. My real problem is the way the side panel pieces stick out on the sides of the skirt- on both skirts. You can observe this also if you look at a couple of blogs. Wish I had noticed it before.

    I have to say, this is the first completed project I've ever made for myself. I've made oodles of things from O&S before with such great results and this one does not disappoint. I will say the sizing is off and most likely a person would have to go down a size. I normally wear a size 18 in RTW, approximately 37 in. waist, 48 in. hips and I can wear the size 16/XL very comfortably. I was not certain I could wear this skirt at first, but took the plunge anyway. The size XL is dead on perfect for me. So, possibly look at the extended measurement before you decide on a size.

    I've only made a muslin of this particular pattern so far, as I make less time to sew for myself than my children, but I can tell by the muslin it's going to be great and a staple I return to over and over. Same great polished oliver + s aesthetic to the pattern and instructions, too. This is starting to become the first place I look for everyday patterns as frankly, sewing with commercial patterns feels like a total drag after liesl + co. and oliver + s, hahah. One note: when using sheer or lightweight fabrics you will definitely want lining of some sort, unless you have an appropriate slip or don't mind showing your panties. :)

    Beautiful In Knit
    Reviewed by on 04/16/2015
    I bought this pattern with the intention of sewing it in knit, even though wovens are recommended. I made my first in a stable ponte knit. It turned out great. The pattern was beautifully designed and clearly explained. I found a blog post where it was recommended to use woven interfacing on the waistband when sewing in knit to prevent stretching. This was great advice and worked well. I plan to make this in a woven next. I highly recommend this pattern.

    The front of this skirt is beautiful! The pockets look so good! But GO DOWN A SIZE when you make--the extra panels at hip give plenty of room, but add too much volume in the back when too big! Overall, I'm thrilled with results--used some fabric that I've been hoarding and rinds me of an Anthro skirt I've been coveting. Was easy to put together and I want to make another.

    Perfect pockets on the Everyday Skirt
    Reviewed by on 02/20/2015
    I had read previous reviews stating the sizing was generous, but still insisted on making my size as per the measurements. Next time I will be making a size small again but with an extra-small back panel lengthened to a small length. I felt there was simply too much fabric in the back panel - but perhaps it is my lack of a butt that caused the problem. A joy to sew, and the nicest looking pockets I have ever done. As always with Oliver+S or it's sister brands - if you have faith and simply follow the directions, you get a gorgeous product. I already have 2 more cut out and ready to sew.

It really is a skirt you can wear everyday, either dressed up with a nice sweater, or dressed down with your favorite worn in t-shirt. Really great pattern!

    Reviewed by on 02/01/2015
    Based on my measurements (size 10 Aus) I started to make a size medium. Part way through construction I realised it was going to be huge so downgraded to a size XS. The final product I am sadly still unable to wear. There is just too much fabric in the skirt for me, which doesn't suit my straight up & down figure (large waist/small hips). The gathered fabric at the front makes me look/feel larger in the waist than I already am. I tried wearing it a few times but have now given up as I feel frumpy in it. This is all very sad as the pattern was great to make & the final skirt looked lovely.

    My go-to skirt!

    Still upset I didn't buy this sooner! The first one I made went together so quickly and easily that I made 2 more on the spot! On top of being easy to make, it looks professionally made and is so flattering! I have mostly made this of "everyday" wear, but did make one with silver sequined fabric and got so many complements.

    great skirt for a novice

    I made the skirt out of a pretty light wooly fabric and it turned out super cute. I'm a total beginner and I was able to understand everything very clearly. The only thing that wasn't obvious to me was the assembly of the pieces printed from y computer, but I managed to make something that worked. The small was a bit big (I normally wear a 6-8 for bottoms) and I wanted to skirt to sit at my waist so I trimmed out fabric from the back panel. It makes for a bit of a flatter bum, but next time i'll know to go for the XS. All in all, a great pattern and a great skirt. I'll be making another one (or more!) for sure.

    Sizing issues...

    I have made three of these. I love he way it comes together, a quick and easy sew. I wear a size 8 off the rack, so the first one I made is a medium. It is huge. The second and third I made smalls, but I still think it looks too wide and kind of frumpy. I still wear them though, I love the pockets.

    I've used O&S patterns before but this was my first Liesl & Co pattern that I MADE. Making this skirt was easier than I thought and it looks top notch! It's comfy and the pockets are genius and handy!! If you've been holding out on making this pattern, don't wait any longer, really.

    Don't rely on size guide
    Reviewed by on 10/30/2014
    I've just finished sewing this skirt and oh, I'm so disappointed! It's my first sewing project in years. The pattern was easy to piece together and cut out. The instructions were also easy to follow and I was very happy with how the skirt was coming together. My only disappointment lies with the sizing. Based on body measurements I was a size 8-10, so made the M sized skirt per the pattern guide. It was way too big. I tried unpicking and trimming side seams, but it has turned into a complete flop. I really enjoyed sewing this skirt and feel quite glum that it hasn't worked out.
