FO: Simplicity 2215

Okay, everyone.  I'm not sure about this one.  This is the skirt pattern from Simplicity 2215.

Do you need to have a defined waist to make this skirt work?  I'm not sure it's doing much for me.

I like it pretty well when I'm wearing it, but I'm not twirl-around-thrilled with it.  Now that I see the pictures, I'm even less convinced.

I removed the pockets, because in my experience, extra floppy fabric around my hips is not a great look for me.  I added five inches to the skirt and then took a deep 4 inch hem just for fun. 

Any thoughts?


  1. You are such a great sewer! I love that skirt, it goes well with everything.

  2. (A late comment as I know you can't wear it at the moment) but I think the skirt looks great on you! Particularly in the second photo where your top is tucked into it.
