I bought Simplicity 1463 because I thought Iris would like View C, but her friend selected View A.
I've always had good experiences with Karen Z for Simplicity patterns and this was no exception.
We went straight from the airport to Colorado Fabrics, where she selected 3 pieces from the pre-cut tables in the back. There was enough of this red and black stripe rayon/lycra jersey to make a skirt using Vogue 9789 View C. We added CF and CB seams and mitered at a 10 degree angle. 10 degrees makes a very subtle V. If we had more fabric, we could have angled the skirt pieces more. But, I was pretty proud to show her how to get 2 items out of a ~2 yard cut.
She has 5 new pieces for her fall/college wardrobe and some new skills.
Iris doesn't have the attention span for or interest in sewing. I made one skirt for her. She OK'd the pattern and fabric, then said it was all wrong. Grr. I'm going to step away and do some selfish sewing for a while.
