Rated 1 out of 5 by Nfossum from Poor Pattern Quality Control My 14 year old granddaughter bought this pattern and some fabric as her first attempt at sewing. She gave up after becoming unable to understand the directions. I have been sewing for 57 years and stepped in to give advice. I have had to take breaks to keep from throwing the whole project in the lake. The pattern directions are very poorly written, difficult to read, understand and implement. Then on direction #10 the first few words are in Spanish. Piece #5, front waistband is not long enough to go from the overlay front opening to the side seam. Directions 18 thru 23 are so complicated, I still haven't figured out how Simplicity expects it to work. I have never worked with such a poorly written pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katharine from Difficult but good results I sewed this skirt 16 times for a group of dancers. As the first reviewer notes it is difficult to understand the attachment process that brings the overskirt, underskirt and waistbands ( yes that's plural) together. You really need to mark all pieces well and follow the instructions carefully. Skirt turns out looking fabulous on all body types. And I agree it is not a good pattern for beginning sewers.
