This pattern has become my new favorite denim skirt. The instructions were wonderful and the fit perfect. I did have to alter the yoke and waistband, but they lay perfectly flat against my back. I can see several more of this skirt in my future. More pictures here https://josephinesews.blogspot.com/2020/10/skirt-nirvana-cashmerette-ellis-skirt.html
I prefer a longer skirt (32”) and one that is wider so I used this pattern as a base. It was very easy to use the slash and spread method to add width and the skirt turned out terrific. I love it!
I love this pattern SO MUCH!
All I had to do was choose my shape and size (pear, size 12) cut and sew!
The pattern fit me straight out of the envelope (OK straight off the A0 print) and the wonderfully presented clear instructions and illustrations made putting it together an absolute breeze.
I've become a very daring sewist since using Cashmerette patterns, in that I tend to chance sewing it up straight away in decent fabric instead of doing a toile first.
Risky, I know, but it’s worked for me so far...
Thanks Team Cashmerette! You rule!
Lovely pattern, easy to follow instructions. As always cashmerette’s patterns never disappoint me.
I didn’t cut the right size for the first one but my friend was really happy to get it because it didn’t fit me
I am currently making a new one because it is the perfect outfit for autumn.
This very modern skirt pattern reminds me of an absolute favourite denim skirt I had back in my much slimmer days in the 80's. I yearned for another one but because of my 60" hip size and sway back there was no chance, that is until Cashmerette came up with the Ellis skirt. I have to say that it didn't fit "straight out of the packet", but neither did I expect it to and that is no fault of Cashmerette, but due to my uniqueness! I had already successfully made the Ames jeans after spending time making alterations and was so pleased with the fit that I purchased this pattern which needed similar alterations to the pattern on the hip and waist but was a doodle this time and the fit is perfect. I shall be making lots more in varying fabrics and colours to add to my ever growing me made wardrobe (all Cashmerette by the way) as it is so comfortable to wear. Well done Cashmerette for another winner!!
