Butterick B5043 : 2 Hour Skirt Pattern
Don’t you love it when a pattern test works out better than expected and you end up with something wearable?! I found a pile of unused patterns in my recent craft room spring clean, and desperate for some new summer clothes as I always am, I whipped up a skirt with a “Fast and Easy 2 Hour Pattern”, B5043 (Skirt A) by Butterick.
The fabric was bought on a whim a couple of years ago with no specific project in mind…is this why I have an out-of-control fabric stash, I wonder? I was unconcerned about failure, I just had an urge to sew. As it says on the pattern, it really is a 2 hour skirt, very simple with only 4 pieces and no zips or fiddly features. I thought perhaps the elastic waist might look a little daggy (you can never accurately judge the packet illustrations), but it sits quite nicely and is hardly noticeable.
Sewing success! And now to make a few more.
