sewing blogs, sewing your style
Hi there, how are you? So happy I found your blog your stuff is awesome. I’m about to sew V1247 and I’m a new sewer and wondering if the skirt is true to the size. Thanks for your help.


Hi! It’s been some time since I made that skirt for myself. But as I remember it was true to the size. On the other hand, as a seamstress used to European patterns, I always tend to give hem allowance on all the patterns I cut, whether it’s a Vogue pattern or a BurdaStyle. 

My advice would be to give some hem allowance on the sides just to be safe. It’s a very easy and fun pattern to work with. I hope the result will turn out perfect for you. Happy sewing! :)
