Quick and easy sew

My wife asks me to make her work skirts all the time! Her favourite pattern is the Meadow skirt with pleats. My sister also loves it when I make them for her as well...

Very easy!

I sewed the maternity version of this skirt as my first "go". I think I made a size too large, but that's my fault for not really knowing my pre-pregnancy measurements. I can wear it easily anyway and I expect as I grow it will fit better. As far as construction goes, it was very simple to construct and came together easily. I definitely hope to make more!

Excellent design features

After eyeing off a few gathered skirt patterns I finally chose the Meadow skirt and I'm glad I did. I haven't ever found a gathered skirt I love as they tend to make me feel frumpy but I was still keen to make one as I've just had baby and I wanted comfy and feminine and pockets. So I think this is a great gathered skirt pattern for those of us that don't love gathered skirts! A fitted front waist band with not too much puff around the hips and the option for a less full back skirt were great features. The other thing is a waistband with a split elastic back so that you can have two different lengths to allow it to flare for your hips. This is great because it enables the skirt to sit with the top at the smallest part of your waist rather than the whole thing riding up. So I'm really pleased with my skirt and love it. Thanks for another great pattern with excellent very clear instructions too! :)

This was my first ever real clothing item. Wow! Thank you! I lived in it for the whole spring and most of the summer. If we had been home I would have made more already!

Lot of Compliments!

I got a lot of compliments on the skirt I made. I had some trouble at first on the waist (with pleats) but I watched the video a few times and finally got it. I love this pattern and will be making more!

Easy and beautiful!

I love this pattern. I made myself an Estuary Skirt and my daughter wanted a copycat. I made the pockets like the Estuary but followed directions for everything else as written. Your pattern is the best written I’ve ever followed. I appreciate all the extra effort you put into it. It definitely translates and makes it all the more enjoyable. Will be making many more!

Waistband was a bit tricky but otherwise really easy sew

Almost perfect sew first time except I slightly stretched the material when I had to fold the waistband over to topstitch. Really easy to follow.
