Simplicity 2416 View D



This is a circa 2010 Khaliah Ali pattern that's still on the Simplicity website. I made View D, which appears in green on the top row of drawings and in blue on the bottom row. It's a 4 panel gored skirt with the addition of a front overlay. Since I usually wear my tops out, I skipped the skirt's sash.




The fabric is a Kaffe Fassett "Milleflore" print on rayon that I bought from Fabric.com. Beautiful stuff, and perfect for this pattern as it has a soft drape. I basically sewed it according to the pattern guide with the addition of serger techniques. I also changed the casing to accommodate 3/4" wide elastic vs. the 1/2" recommended. It was very simple to sew together and went together in no time.

I wear a lot of the colors in this print, so I already have several tops that'll coordinate. A nice addition to the wardrobe!

Great skirt! I love Fassett's colorful prints, the millefiore is one of my favorites. Your skirt is way prettier than any of the ones on the envelope!

Lovely, and the drape is just so feminine.

Wonderful colors and I bet the rayon feels terrific when your skirt swishes.
