Hi there! I’m Jessie, and it’s my very first time posting on The Monthly Stitch! I know it’s bad form to be posting late on my very first challenge but well… life happens.
I wasn’t planning to take part in the January challenge, but the thought of a denim skirt that was office-appropriate kept haunting my dreams at night so I grabbed some leftover denim and the Delia Creates Pleated Pencil Skirt pattern that I bought last Black Friday, and dove in headfirst. I had no idea how this make would turn out as there aren’t many reviews of this Delia Creates pattern out there but I figured I would give it a shot and see how it turned out.
… And you guys, it turns out that I REALLY like this pattern. I hesitate to claim I LOVE it just yet because I feel like I haven’t perfected the fit, but I must say that this might be THE ONE. The pdf version also happens to be only 8 pages long, which is a major win. EIGHT pages! That is unheard of. My taping-paper-hating soul was singing the hallelujah chorus as I printed this out. The only thing I dislike is that the pattern lines are drawn in colour, which is kind of a hassle if you only have a black and white printer at home, like I do.
For more details of my thoughts on this pattern and the fit adjustments I made, hop on over to my post here! See you in the next challenge!
