    Simplicity Misses’ Skirts 8459

    TheMagnificentThread

    The Simplicity 8459 is a fairly new-release and unlike the majority of ‘Big 4’ patterns, I was drawn to it because the cover version is actually, you know…nice! I chose it as a palate cleansing project in between bigger makes, and it was a really quick but still satisfying sew. Tracking down the hardware is probably the biggest sticking point to getting started, particularly the buckle which needs to be 2″ wide to fit the front wrap piece – you could probably adjust the pattern if necessary. I got my buckle and eyelets from Minerva Crafts. Frustratingly for anyone who hovers around the 12-14 mark like me, the pattern size range runs from 4-12 and 14-22. I ended up making View B in a size 12 using orange corduroy. The front wrap panel is lined too, but overall this view requires very little fabric. Although there is no provision for lengthening or shortening view B, I added an extra 1″ to the length of my pieces when cutting as I was worried it might turn out obscenely short. And yes it is short – I’m a fairly average 5ft 6″ for reference, but adding that extra inch feels very necessary. The instructions are surprisingly thorough and there’s also extra advice offered for making the skirt up in leather/faux leather/suede which is really handy. Although I like it in the corduroy, the fabric doesn’t take to the rivets and buckle quite as well as I’d like, so I would be tempted to give it a go in a more substantial pleather. I really like the finished skirt and would definitely recommend it/make it again myself!
