My fave is an old butterick from 1974 or 1975. It was my mom's old cheerleading skirt pattern when she was in HS.

Wow, I'm surprised someone dug this out of the dregs of Craftster!   Cheesy

And I just re-read the thread and noticed that I never put up my favorite A-line skirt pattern!

It's actually McCall's 3999, which seems to have disappeared off the face of the Intar-web, and it's basically a long ruffly hippie skirt that my mom and I chopped off at the knee (so it has no ruffles).  It has front and back darts, a faced waistband, and a side zipper.  Easy-peasy, and I've made it twice so far...

Here's the first version I attempted -- the zipper is a bit wonky but oh well.  Since it's on the side not a lot of people see it!

I plan on making this for fall/winter in some awesome black and white herringbone with a lining....stay tuned!

I really like New Look 6843. It's a really easy A-line skirt (only 3 pieces!) that looks great each time I make it...

Here's one straightforward example of it, taken about 2 years ago:

New Look 6203, It was the first skirt I've ever made, and it was really easy, easy instructions and everything. It had a good fit too. Heres a picture (not a me, from the simplicity.com website)

How I helped!

OK so one day i bought a Mccalls pattern at hobby lobby because they were one sale for like 2 bucks each. I got some cheap fabric and went home to sew. the directions were way too confusing, so i took the liberty of finishin it myself. It was SUPER SUPER EASY after that. only 2 pieces, a zipper, some heam tape, and 20 MINUITES!!

I have made two so far and plan to make another soon. here is a pic of the first one I made:

I cant remember the number of the pattern right now though...darn i'll have to get back to ya.
