Pattern Review: Colette 1005 Beignet Skirt

Threads magazine - 157 – Oct./Nov. 2011
Article Image

Style Tip: This skirt style is the perfect multiseason piece. Make it in wool with rustic metal buttons to wear with boots for winter, or make it in linen with wood buttons for summer.

This review was originally featured in Threads #157 (October/November 2011).

Colette Beignet 1005

This ladylike A-line skirt has seven panels and finishes just above the knee. It is fully lined with a shaped high waist, side seam pockets, center-front button closure, and self-fabric belt loops and belt. The waist facing extends below the waistline, giving the high waist additional support. This skirt is perfect for many fabric types, such as wool crepe, piqué, and silk tweeds, as well as the recommended cotton, poplin, gabardine, wool tweed, and suiting fabrics. Our tester found the beautifully packaged pattern to have clear illustrations and instructions.

(Sized 0-18 for hips 35-48 in.)
