    Kensington skirt
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 02/18/2021
    I made this skirt out of a heavy-ish charcoal grey knit fabric. Not the wrap version. Having cut out the size I thought I was, I discovered it was way too fitted - contouring the parts of my body that don't need accentuating. So ... going up two sizes, I measured the difference on the pattern and, accordingly, cut two strips of fabric which I inserted between the side seams. I also cut out a new yoke to fit the larger size. The result was actually quite pleasing.And the waist is beautifully comfortable! I would like to blame the fabric for being so clingy, but maybe I need to be more honest with my measurements. In the end I am very happy with my skirt. I will definitely make more - I love skirts you can just pull on - my only question is, should I stick with my 'design feature' for future versions?!

    Great instructions, sizing chart is perfect...grading between 2 sizes is so easy and fit beautifully. Fabric chosen was denim ponte..... couldn’t be happier!!

    I really love this pattern in many ways...great instructions, great fit, and easy to whip up a new skirt in a short amount of time. I made my first skirt out of a navy knit for a basic go- with- everything skirt. Super comfortable and quick. I'll be making several of these in the future.

    I love Liesl patterns but this knit skirt pattern is amazing. I made it with a stripe ponte remnant and a solid ponte waistband. It is comfortable to take on and off and fits like a dream. There will be more and I know it will become my go to knit skirt pattern.
