It’s the first skirt I’ve made for 2013 and I love it!
What I really like about this pattern is it’s simple lines and how easy it is to sew… it’s definitely a great pattern for anyone who’s new to sewing and is looking for an easy pattern to start with. I made a couple of minor changes to the pattern including adding 4inches to the length as I don’t have the best looking legs you’ve ever seen and added a lining.
Looking at these pictures I think I could have added another couple of inches as I wouldn’t have mined it even a little longer. I was a little cautious and didn’t want to add to much length in case the flair around the lower part of the skirt didn’t look right but I think it would have been fine. I’ve made a note of this on my pattern for next time I use this pattern.
This is the New Look 6609 pattern and the fabric I used which is a rayon challis from Fabric.com and was only $5.58 per yard and I only used around 2.

Personally I think the New Look 6609 pattern is a winner and a keeper and is quite flattering and slimming for a fuller figured woman like myself.
I’d love to know your thoughts on the New Look 6609 pattern… is it a keeper?
