Every year, since I learned how to sew, I have made something to wear to my husband work Holiday Party. This year I chose Simplicity 8746 a simple wrap skirt. I picked a plaid fabric from Joann’s and use faux leather from my stash for the side ties. This is a really simple project with only 6 pieces in total.
I shorten the length about two inches because it was too long for me, I’m 5′ 4″ just to give you an idea. I was afraid it was going to be too cold to wear it but thankfully the weather was great! I paired my cute little skirt with a simple turtleneck and knee high boots. I have been looking for boots like these for a while and I was lucky to found them on sale for a just 40 dollars. I also wore a wool black coat I bought at the Goodwill many years ago.
Pattern Description: wrap skirts available in multiple lengths and feature D-ring closings to allow the skirt to drape perfectly from your waist. Great for plaids!
Pattern Sizing: 6 – 14 and 14 – 22.
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? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the pleats in the back and the possibility to use different types of closures for the side.
Fabric Used: brushed cotton from Joann’s.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes!

Thanks for your review! Did you use the size you measured for, or did you size down? I often find big 4 patterns have gobs of ease.
I used the finished garment measurements. It was almost too small for my waist but that wasn’t an issue since you can adjust the button/closures easily on this type of skirt.
