  1. Alexandria Phillip

    I liked this pattern way more than I thought I would and absolutely loved the finished product. I used the cutting chart rather than printing out all the pieces and it was really easy to understand.

  2. Rebekah Homer

    It was great adding to my skirt collection. I really liked how comfortable the skirt is when wearing and moving. The fabric I used made it feel like the skirt was flowing out and away from me every time I took a step- like stepping through air currents. Hard to describe, but it was amazing.

  3. Erica L Oswalt

    This is such an amazing pattern! Isabella everyday? Most of the directions were easy to read and follow. I thought it might be helpful to use 2 inch elastic for the tall waistband instead of two strips. In fact, I will do this for my other two skirts, because it will pull more evenly. Overall, I love this pattern, and this skirt.

  4. Marietjie

    I found the pattern easy and quick to sew. The instructions was very clear and easy to follow.

  5. Angel Pooley

    As a beginner to sewing I really enjoyed sewing this due to the step by step instructions. One thing I struggled with was the waistband, I found it difficult to understand but that’s probably due to maybe reading it wrong. Made a little mistake but it’s still wearable and due to the help of the group I figured out how to do the waistband better next time.

  6. Gina Gongora

    Awesome, easy and versatile. Definitely an enjoyable pattern and a must have item in everyone’s closet.

  7. Erica Nemnich

    Great pattern. Love the lace detail!

  8. Amy Strawser

    The Isabella was an enjoyable sew and a very nicely put together pattern. I will be making more!

  9. Shaina Mack

    This was a quick and easy sew and is perfect for beginners. Isabella is fun to wear, comfortable and looks beautiful yet completely different depending on the fabric that you choose.

  10. Tiffany Amos

    I love this skirt for two reasons . First because of the French seam option for those who do not have a serger and the elastic paper bag back casing . It’s a super comfortable skirt and is great for a night out with the ladies or if you want to dress it up . You can’t go wrong either way .

  11. Shankari Paradee

    The Isabella is such a fun pattern for those starting out in sewing! I love the lace trim and the ruffled bottom layer. The pattern is easy to follow and straight forward. You will love wearing your new Isabella skirt!

  12. Shirley Soon

    I feel beautiful when i put on my Isabella! This pattern was not difficult to sew but does take some time to put together (gathering)! This is my first maxi skirt and I’m already looking forward to make more, it is just so comfy to wear!

  13. June Butchee

    The Ladies Isabella is a full, gathered, woven skirt with a distinct feature, a panel of lace or whatever you want to coordinate with your skirt, right above it’s ruffle. Choose whatever color you like. Any color looks good for an Isabella. The waistband is elasticized only on the back section leaving the front smooth. The skirt can easily be dressed up or down depending on your mood. Try the Isabellas, you won’t regret it.

  14. TaWanna Archia

    I thought this was would be a simple sew but with all the french seams it made for a lot of work. I love that it is out of the box and like a boho chic style. The instructions were pretty good, except for the waistband instructions. I did get a little confused. But overall a good pattern. It was my first experience with a pdf pattern so I did have a learning curve. Otherwise, great pattern.

  15. Betsy Koestler

    I love this pattern. It is a lovely design. A maxi skirt with a lace tier and a ruffle? It was not my first nor second choice, but IT IS NOW! I will be making many more of these! The sizing was spot on (though there is a lot of give because of the elastic!) Though it is primarily a woven pattern, I think it hangs better in a knit fabric.

  16. Deepthi Gunasheker

    Very east and fast sew. The inside has clean finish with French seams.

  17. Sandy Simpson

    I found this pattern was easy to put together, easy to cut out and fun to construct. When I put on my skirt for the first time I was pleasantly surprised with the way it looked. It is flattering and delightfully feminine and I am so, so happy with it.

  18. Pauline Kelly

    A flowy boho but chic ankle length skirt that made me feel younger than my years. It was an easy to follow pattern and I even avoided printing the pattern by using the cutting guide which is included. It is a great opportunity to use some of that special lace you have had in your stash and some pretty flowy fabric. I will be making a few more of these for my daughters as well.
