Modest Skirt – Simplicity 9825

DSCN4040

My inspiration for this skirt is from “Beautiful One Modest Apparel” and is called the Elena Denim Ruffle.  I have been looking at this skirt for months but is a bit out of what I would like to spend for a skirt, especially since I sew.

I pulled out a Simplicity pattern, 9825 and 2 yards of denim (60″ wide) that I have had for months and decided to give it a try.

I measured my waist and per the pattern I was a size 8.  However, I decided to make a muslin first and glad I did, I RARELY make a muslin. I ended up making a size 12 but took in the hips. 

On the length I cut 1″ below view B.  I then cut a 3″ strip the same size as the bottom of the skirt and added a 9″ slightly ruffled tier at the bottom and a 7″ slightly ruffled tier at the top and then added this piece to the bottom of the skirt.  I am under 5′ and this is the perfect length for me.

I am pleased with the results and like the pattern.  I will be making lots of these skirts, some with ruffles and some without.
