I enjoyed making this pattern. The front wrap reminds me of Thai fisherman's pants and it’s really comfy to wear. I cut a 16 but found it a little big so ended up sewing a 12. My first was in a heavy black linen, and the second in a wallpaper-type floral. For my shape, I did find that the addition of small back darts helped the skirt fit better on me.
1st time user so I had an issue with downloading and printing pattern (I didn’t read instructions fully and my printer settings were incorrect !!) - I received great support and got everything printed correctly- the pattern is great - I’ve made 2 so far.
I started by making a prototype and was most impressed by the cleverness of this pattern, and may even wear the prototype in the summer. The fabric I had specifically purchased for this skirt is a fine woven wool from The Fabric Store in Dunedin. It made up perfectly, I was worried about not lining it, but with a long petticoat it sits nicely and doesn't cling to my merino tights. I will make the pattern again probably in a linen for summer - a fabric with some structure for shape but not a 'stiff' or heavy fabric.
liked the pattern easy sew, great instructions but didnt suit by body. Maybe my denim fabric was too heavy or I needed a smaller size. I will try again with different fabric and a smaller size soon. Still love the design. Keen to try some other Sewing Revival Patterns soon.
Hi Janine, sorry for the delay in replying your message. I just wanted to start sewing this project before I answer your survey.
As I am now in the process I can say that I like the accuracy of the pattern. I had no problems to assemble it from A4 pages. The instructions are easy to understand. I like the model of this skirt very much and I am generally now in pleasant process of sewing. I also noted 2 patterns more which I think I want to purchase too.
I am very glad I saw the garments made using your patterns in Instagram. That is how I found out of you
I love the ingenious way the skirt folds over at the waistband. However I find fault with the lack of interfacing in the waistband. Since this is an important part of a good waistband, I gave this pattern 3 stars.
Disappointed not in the pattern but customer service.
I unfortunately purchased and downloaded my Finch skirt on my work computer. When I went to access my Finch skirt pattern again at home, the link wasn’t available,I emailed the Sewing Revival requesting a new link and I was told to go and look in my downloads folder it would be there, as I was on a work computer our downloads are not saved to downloads this function is disabled so I was no longer able to access my Finch skirt pattern.
I’m really disappointed that this company whom I’ve purchased many patterns from previously would not just send me a new link so that I could download at home. When I purchase something from a face-to-face store I’m getting something tangible and taking it home, unfortunately when you purchase an electronic download you have to get it right first time particularly from this company otherwise you lose the privilege of the download. In effect you’ve lost your money. I would have hoped for some sort of customer loyalty - given I’ve purchased before and have never misused their property.
I have just been back over our correspondence and note that you didn't explain to us that you were unable to find the downloads folder on your work computer. Your single email to us asked for a new link - and we responded as we do with most customers the first time they receive the expired link note, to explain that your computer automatically saves the pattern files to the downloads folder on your computer (so you don't actually need the extra downloads) - and that we recommend you save the files in a new folder on your computer for future reference. All of this information is in both the confirmation of purchase email and the downloads email you receive (but we do understand not everyone reads everything and we are always happy to reply to customers queries). We have no record of further emails from you advising us that you couldn't find the downloads folder on your work computer - or in fact that you still had issues. I have now reset and resent the link to your computer. We are always happy to work through any issues you have to ensure you have a positive outcome.
Great little skirt!
I needed a couple of adjustments to get a perfect fit ie took wider, longer darts and inserted a back zip. Now that I know what I need to do I will make this skirt again and again. It has a perfect balance between dressed up and relaxed casual. It will take me anywhere in style.
I just finished the Finch Fold Skirt by the Sewing Revival and I can’t say enough good things about it! The fit was true to size and the ease of the instructions will have you wearing your skirt after an afternoon of sewing!
I made my skirt out of a linen/cotton blend. There was enough structure to the fabric to hold the pleats without the waistband folding over. I did not need interfacing for the waistband.
I have been recommending this pattern to many people and will be making more to add to my summer wardrobe.
Thanks Sewing Revival for another great pattern!!
