Sewing Vogue 9060 is a fun and easy project that results in a lovely new skirt. Marcy Tilton's design is one of those that, although simple, is quite striking. A joy to sew and a joy to wear.
I sewed a medium and didn't make any alterations except for the waistband. The pattern includes two options for the waistband, one that is wide and one that is more narrow, but neither one really worked for me. I just made an ordinary one inch band and enclosed some 3/4 inch elastic. I have gotten short waisted in middle age and the kind of waistband on this design doesn't sit still.
FYI - Consider sewing a size that is smaller than your usual. The waist and hips measurements for a medium are much smaller than I am, yet the finished size is fits great.
I noticed two other bloggers that I follow have written about this pattern. Check out http://blog.myrnagiesbrecht.com and Communing with Fabric for some more good info on this pattern.
