Butterick 5566

Funny Face! Ha!

Back of the Skirt

Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, above mid-knee skirt

Pattern Sizing:

AA(6-8-10-12), EE(14-16-18-20); I made a size 10

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?


Were the instructions easy to follow?

Very easy to follow

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

It's cute and comfortable, a winning combination. I adore it!

The only thing I dislike is that I wish the leather part would have extended to the back part of the skirt. Other than that, it's perfect (in my opinion).

Fabric Used:

A patterned knit purchased from Super Textiles in Dallas, and thrifted leather

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

I sewed the skirt in a knit fabric, so I went down one size from what I'd normally sew and eliminated the zipper. That's about it.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Absolutely! I plan on making a few of the other views. I highly recommend to anyone!


Sorry for the funny face in the photo; I'm very uncomfortable with having my picture taken. It only took me a year to finally write a review.

That being said, I loved the skirt. It was so easy to make, only taking an afternoon. I plan on making a matching jacket with the leftover fabric sometime this year.
