Here's a round-up of pictures from the pattern test of the Sofia skirt! We had 31 women who sewed different variants of the skirt in their own size and provided us feedback. So we feel confident that we've created a skirt with as perfect fit as possible. We hope you'll love Sofia.
All testers have chosen size based on their waist and hip measurements. Where needed, they have blended sizes. Sofia's tutorial includes instructions on how to blend sizes.
These are the variants included in the pattern:
A1 = Knee-length pencil skirt
A2 = Calf-length pencil skirt
A3 = Color blocked pencil skirt, knee or calf length
A4 = Pencil skirt with back vent, knee or calf length
C = Calf length skirt with front ruching
B = Short skirt with light flounce
We'll start with the smallest size, 32, and work our way up to 52.
