Pattern Review: LJ Designs Chardonnay Skirt

Style Tip: Make it casual in lightweight denim or more elegant in layers of chiffon.

This review was originally featured in Threads #154 (April/May 2011).

A La Mode-Chardonnay Skirt

LJ Designs cleverly labeled all the patterns in this line after food items. This flattering sarong-like skirt is named after a light and versatile wine. It is a one-piece pattern with four darts that can be custom fitted by adding or subtracting from each dart. The pattern is drafted to cause the cascade to fall on the bias. The flounce hides an 18-inch zipper closure at center front. The skirt is long (37.25 inches at CB) for the average height, but can be easily adjusted at the hemline. For added comfort, narrow elastic is sewn into the waistline. Lining is optional, but recommended for lightweight fabrics.

(Sized XXS [2-4]-XXL [26-28] for hips 29.5-53 in.)

Style Tip: Make it casual in lightweight denim or more elegant in layers of chiffon.
