Y'all this skirt almost got the best me! I was so excited to finally muster up the courage to try this pattern. You see I first purchased this pattern a few years back, after having seen the fabulous Erica B's version... I knew I would make this skirt; however, the poor reviews from some of the reviewers put me off from making it sooner.

look, and wanted to recreate this
look done my way :)..
I would seriously recommend that one makes a mock-up of this one, or use the basting function on their machine to make sure they have a feel for how this skirt is meant to go.I love the finished skirt, like seriously love; however, getting it done took a measure of patience. I didn't have any problems with bulk at the insets, as I thought that I would. Now I didn't think it wise to serge the front insets because of that tricky sew to the dot and pivot madness. I wasn't sure that I could get a clean finish using my serger on this part; however, I did serge the back insets and everywhere else that could be serged.

I do want to make sure that I include, hopefully a helpful picture as to how the back insets should before being stitched to the back skirt. This step, step 13 had me confused. I don't know, I just couldn't figure it out, darn near took all of my 30 minute sewing time figuring it out, geesh...

You will have a slight gap on either sides of insets, but don't worry
as it will close once you add your waistband.
I am so glad to finally have this skirt in my wardrobe. I know that it will get worn plenty so to me that is a win, win! Oh, my shirt, I hear you say. Well, still waiting to put on those pesky buttons lol... I'm gonna get it done this weekend, y'all! But for now, I just plan to curl up with my box set dvd's of the Golden Girls and blog surf.. I hope you all have wonderful weekend!
~Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
