Pattern Review: Vogue 8287

I thought I’d share some of the details of my orange skirt.  The pattern is OOP, but it’s a favourite of mine.  I’ve made the skirt up before – it’s the purple one in this post.

For this version I made the waistband about 4” wide and top stitched it every 1/8th of an inch.  It’s very tight, but that’s the look that I was going for.

It’s a super fun skirt to wear – it walks like it’s floating around me.
