Divas, I finally finished with Butterick 5249, I finished one skirt two weeks ago and put in my first lining ever.. Not to mention that this skirt pattern does not include a lining pattern... I referenced "Easy Guide to Sewing Linings". By Connie Long...However, with all the excitement that this project was actually coming together, zipper, lining, finished seams, finished with my new serger...I had my first of many heartbreaks, in sewing that is...The fabulous, lined skirt, with finished seams didn't fit...
Yes, Divas it didn't fit!!! The skirt was a hamburger and large fry too tight, oh what the heck and a large Coke too tight LOL....It's time to start back working out again, like seriously!!! I refused to beaten so, I dusted off my little ego and got to work on a second skirt this one is without a lining but it still is wonderfully finished on the inside and I can BREATHE, yes I can BREATHE and eat okay maybe not eat so much lol!!!Well Divas I hope you like the new skirt I love it and it will get much wear this winter!As always Divas be blessed and nothin' less

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were really easy! I had more problems uploading my pictures and links to my blog LOL!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked everything about this pattern, simple, classic and a clean cut skirt!
Fabric Used: I used a cotton poplin from fabric.com
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I took smaller seam allowances on the side after checking the fit and realized it was a bit snug...In doing this ;however,I noticed that the skirt isn't as tapered at the bottom ,but I still love it nonetheless....
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew this skirt again and I would also recommend this anyone!
Conclusion: Great skirt pattern... I am glad to have tried something new...
