Pattern Review: Vogue 1292 Misses’ Skirt

Threads magazine - 163 - Oct./Nov. 2012 Issue

Sewing Tip: This is a great project to play with fabric direction. Use a striped fabric or even a fabric with a nap to create a unique look.

This review was originally featured in Threads #163 (October/November 2012).

Vogue 1292

Quick to make, these slim-fitting, lined skirts are made from four panels without side seams and have an elastic waist. One view has a raised decorative waist and the other has a distinctive origami-like border along the hem formed from 12 bias panels. The lining attaches at the hemline to create a blouson finish. The clear and accurate instructions include fitting advice. Four-way stretch double knit or jersey is recommended. Woven fabrics can be used for the center-front and center-back panels. The knit lining fabric can be tricot, lightweight jersey, or a slippery knit. It is shown in midweight rayon knit.

(Sized Misses’ A-J for hips 34.5-57 in.)

Sewing Tip: This is a great project to play with fabric direction. Use a striped fabric or even a fabric with a nap to create a unique look.
