Great pattern for a versatile skirt. The fit was easy to adjust for my body and I love all the jeans details (rivets, topstitching, belt loops, coin pocket,…). I can cycle in this skirt easily without feeling constricted.
I’ll move the walking slit to the back of the skirt for my next version to minimize flashing my anti-chub rub shorts when sitting down.
I’m a larger lady - size 28uk - and it’s really hard to find designs to fit my shape and size (I’m fuller round my hips and tum) but this skirt fits beautifully and the pattern instructions were easy to follow I’m a confident beginner doing clothing xx
Instructions were great, much better than other patterns I’ve tried!
I think Step 9 is wrong, I would think the front pocket (4) would be sewn to the right side of pocket lining (5) so when you open the pocket the right side of the fabric is visible.
Other than that I have no complaints!
My garment is not completely finished so I’m not sure how accurate sizing is but here’s to hoping.
I love the Ellis skirt - for a stretch denim it's perfect! The fit is great (I made the pear-shaped version) and the instructions are great. I even made a second skirt in a woven stretch fabric. Great pattern! :)
Lovely pattern with a good fit. However found I struggled a bit with getting a neat finish on the zip, next time will try to complete the zip finish similar to my jeans patterns. Otherwise, great pattern.
