  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Knit Skirt! This pattern is designed to be very easy to sew. There's a front, back, and fold-over waistband, with an optional drape you can add to the front of the shorter skirt for a bit of embellishment. Very simple! The directions are top-notch, and the finished skirt is absolutely darling. Very flattering for those with wide hips or a bit of a tummy! If you've been wanting to dip your toes in and start working with knit fabrics, this is a great pattern to start with. Just be aware that the sizing runs HUGE. Pattern sizing is always different from store-bought clothing, so you have to use your waist and hip measurements to find your pattern size. However, with this particular pattern, you need to cut TWO SIZES smaller than what it tells you. According to my measurements, I needed a size medium, but I cut the extra-small . . . and it fit perfectly! One of my students cut only one size smaller and the resulting skirt was a bit too big. So you definitely need to go down TWO sizes. As I recall, the directions don't tell you that because you're working with knit fabric you must use ballpoint pins and a ballpoint needle in your sewing machine to avoid snagging and skipped stitches. You must use a stretch stitch, too, otherwise the thread will break when the fabric stretches. A narrow zigzag works, but even better is a triple stretch stitch, which is straight, but goes backwards and forwards as it sews, so the stitch will stretch with your fabric. To finish your seam allowances, don't use a zigzag stitch like the directions say. It will look sloppy! Instead, use an overlock stitch in combination with an overlock presser foot. (Most sewing machines are capable of overlocking.) The stitch is a combination of a straight stitch and a zigzag that wraps over the edge of the fabric to keep it neat and tidy. Don't attempt to overlock without the presser foot---it won't look right. All in all, I'm very pleased with this pattern. I'm a sewing teacher and I've used it for my students who want to learn how to sew with knit fabrics. It's definitely beginner-friendly. Great pattern, five stars, highly recommended!
