This is the first time I’ve made anything by Jalie. I found the pattern on Pattern Review and thought I’d give it a try since I had “outgrown” my tried and true skirt pattern.
This is a good, basic, “quick and dirty” pattern. It is not lined. I finished all of my seams with zig-zag. After I figured out the instructions–they are in both English and French right next to each other–this dress really only took a couple of hours total from start to finish.
I made the short version but had to shorten it.
When I make it again, I will probably add a lining to it because it won’t be that hard to do and I prefer lined skirts.
