I am completely thrilled to be included on the Shaffer Sisters’ pattern tour! Three sisters who blog together. How wonderful is that? I have never met these lovely ladies in person, but always enjoy reading their posts and seeing what they create. You can absolutely feel the love they have for each other on there.
Now they have created a skirt pattern!
OK pattern details. They present a couple of ways for you to make one of four different skirts that come in the PDF pattern. First, you can go off measurements for those of you who like that, and skip the printing. Or you can actually print out the pattern and use it.
I chose to make the gathered skirt, but there is also a pleated one (either with large pleats or small pleats) and there is also another version of the gathered skirt with a placket. SO MANY CHOICES!!!
I won some fabric a little while ago, and have been saving this Heather Ross Far far away unicorn fabric for a special project. When I asked her, Falafel immediately knew which one she wanted for this skirt. I am glad she chose this one. It is so bright and happy. I added a piece of bias tape to add another pop of color, along with a cute little bow and flower button. It isn’t part of the pattern, but I love that I could add it very easily.
If you are a beginner, this is a great pattern to show you step-by step how to sew a very professional looking skirt. And for those intermediate sewers out there, this pattern makes it super easy and convenient to whip up an adorable skirt in any size from newborn to size 16x with plus sizes AND a bonus 18″ doll skirt pattern!
