I had difficulty easing the waist band onto the skirt body no matter how many times I pressed the fabric it still puckered at the waist band. Personally I don't like sewing these type of waist bands (makes fitting harder).
I thought my zip sewing was perfect, but it wasn't. I had a slight excess of fabric so it didn't look as good as it should of. But I wasn't going to unpick it as I hated sewing this fabric. Also I wasn't too sure if the skirt was going to look good anyway...
Overall this pattern is an easy sew and I'd make it again in a different fabric. Also maybe I wouldn't have a waist band I'd just use a facing like Style B....Has anybody else had trouble easing the waist band?
Pattern: New Look 6103
Fabric: Heavy taffeta type

but I do love the colour!
|The back..this is probably more|
of a winter skirt as the fabric is heavy.
You'll get too hot wearing this in the

waist band looks better lying down!
I'm still not happy with it. It doesn't
sit as well as it should.
