Today is the day that we know you have been waiting all of autumn for. Well, no need to sit huddling at your computer biting your fingernails in suspense anymore… the most fabulous event of Autumn is here… THE 2014 AUTUMN SKIRT AWARDS!!! Yes folks, all in caps, as it indeed deserves to be. Today we award awards (ha) to the awesome ladies who spent time and effort on deserving autumn skirts. And now let’s get down to the actual awarding of the awards. Dun dun duuuuuuuun!!!
Most Creative Skirt:
This time around we discovered the fabulous Lauramae over at PatternReview, and her seam binding skirt was the creativist of the creative. (creatival? creativilal?) She made this skirt during the first challenge of the Sewing Bee, which was to sew an a-line skirt!!!
Fancy Skirt Award:
This Fancy Skirt Award goes to Annesliese at Aesthetic Nest with her gorgeous taffeta wrap skirt. Such flair!
Best Knit Skirt:
The Best Knit skirt this fall is undoubtedly this draped pencil one by Heather over at Feather’s Flights. Congratulations!
Best Little Skirt:
This is probably our favorite award to give, and the hardest to choose the winner. We chose Stacy’s Peacock Costume Skirt over at At Luce Ends for this fall’s best little skirt. So, so fun!
Best Maxi Skirt:
Teresa over at Dandelion Drift stunned us with her fabulous Syrah maxi skirt. We proudly present her with our Best Autumn Maxi skirt award!
Best New Pattern:
For this Autumn’s Best New Skirt Pattern we had to go with the Magnolia Skirt Pattern over at Elegance and Elephants. We can’t wait to make it!
Fun Skirt Award:
This new award goes to Cassie at Lily Shine Boutique, with her gorgeous Shine Bright skirt that you can actually play with; and if you remember Cassie, it’s because she was the Summer Quick Skirt Award winner! Congratulations!
Best Skirt Refashion:
This award goes to Give The Cat A Name, who did a fabulous job of refashioning a maternity dress.
Best Skirt Tutorial:
We are honored to present this award to Kate at See Kate Sew, who did this amazing pleather skirt tutorial- we love, love, love it!
Best Woven Skirt:
Sometimes simple is the most awesome. This award goes to Margo from Creating In The Gap. If we had this skirt, we’d wear it every single day!
Best Autumn Skirt:
Here’s another Betty Skirt- or three, for that matter from Two Many- that merit the Best Autumn Skirt Award. Hey, can we just declare pleather the official fabric of fall? Please?
Whew! Can I just say that I’m amazed by the talent in the sewing community? If you won a badge, go on and grab it and proudly display it to all and sundry on your blog! Which of these were your favorite? We’d love to hear your opinions! If you would like to nominate a skirt for the 2014 Winter Skirt Awards, coming at the end of winter, send us an email.
