    I’ve been toying with trying the Everyday Skirt–I rarely sew for myself, usually crafts or for the kids. But the “Yay, we won” sale had me going ahead and buying it, and now I get to sew something for myself.

    And I admit I also bought the Bedtime Story pjs. I’d given up on finding paper copies (which I much prefer), so the digital on sale will have to do.

    The Everyday Skirt is such a great pattern! I have two and wear them often.

    You’ll love sewing and wearing the Everyday Skirt! I’ve sewn 3 now (2 for myself and one for my sister). It’s easy but looks very pulled together.

    I may have also taken advantage of the “yay we won!” sale and picked up 1 or 3 Liesl + Co patterns I didn’t have yet…

    I am going to suggest you make a muslin. It goes together beautifully, but has tons of ease. You may not need the size it says you need. You may be able to go down one or two depending. Or you may need the size for the front of one, but a narrower cut/ size down in the back. The back has extra and for some of us, ahem, there can be a bustle effect of too much fabric in a spot you don’t want it.

    Don’t be discouraged though. I love the pattern!

    I agree, I made a large per my measurements and wore it a lot, pregnant, 😉

    Yes, you might be able to size down a bit. Just be sure the skirt will fit over your hips! That’s the only reason I left the ease–it would be such a shame to sew it and not be able to actually pull the skirt on!

    Yep! That is why I recommend the muslin. So you can ease over the hips but avoid that bustle! 🙂
