Pattern by The Eli Monster
JUMP. FOR. JOY...
The skirt sews up rather nicely. The waist was sewn differently than how I'd have thought to sew it, but it was easy to follow along and learn a new technique along the way. There is an included size size chart as well as a finished measurements chart. I made a size 2 waist with a 4 length for my little Miss 6 (remember, she's petite for her age). The fit is spot on!
The moment I saw the call for testers, I knew what fabric I'd use if I got picked. I originally bought this striped fabric for a skirt for myself -- inspired by this picture on Pinterest. I may have just enough leftover to make my own!
For my daughter, I styled it with a "lucky-find clearanced" jean jacket from Target. white tank top and red rain boots (for a pop of color). A low side pony tail, a trio of flowers (from One Thimble Issue 8) and a pair of sunglasses complete the look.
In my opinion, the skirt has the perfect amount of gathering. It turned out exactly as I envisioned and my daughter LOVES it (clearly from her pictures).
Look for it's release
