We didn’t forget about it, and we know you didn’t either, so now that summer is officially here, it’s time for the Spring 2015 Skirt Awards! Grab your popcorn and take your seats everyone, we are about to lower the lights…
Most Creative Skirt Award
This award heralds back to Kids Clothes Week Spring 2015! There was this little hand stamped swan skirt for the Wild Things theme. Ornella, from over at My Cute Sewing, made this little cutie! Here’s your badge.
Fancy Skirt Award
Now you all have probably heard us say before how we view a skirt as a blank palette, and obviously Rebecca Bryan of Bryan House Quilts does too! She combined two of our loves, quilting and skirts, for this amazing, fantastic fancy skirt. Rebecca, here’s your well deserved badge!
Knit Skirt Award
This skirt also came out of the spring Kid Clothes Week event. Davina, who blogs at Woohoo by Davina, created this cute little knit skirt. It’s pretty amazing, and definitely earns this badge!
Little Skirt Award
Since we’re on a Spring Kids Clothes Week roll, we’re going to award the Little Skirt Award. Stacy, of At Luce Ends, sewed up this darling little skirt from Cotton and Steel fabric using the Oliver+S Swingset skirt pattern. Stacy, here’s your little badge!
Maxi Skirt Award
A maxi skirt in spring can be a difficult thing to pull off, but Becca made this skirt sing over at Pattern Revolution! Becca, please take your badge.
Best New Pattern
Now there were a LOT of cute skirts that came out this spring, but we had to narrow it down to just one! So we award this badge to Violette Field Threads for their Quinn Skirt.
Fun Skirt Award
Did you see the latest issue of Stylo? There were so many fun, bright fashions in that issue, but the Fun Skirt Award without a doubt goes to Karly of Paisley Roots for this very, very fun tutu! Karly, here’s your fun badge!
Best Skirt Refashion
If we could find more pillowcases like the one Libby (the blogger behind Hoping for Rocketships) did for her skirt refashion, we’d all be wearing skirts like this! Way to refashion, Libby, here’s your badge.
Best Skirt Tutorial
When Autumn, from It’s Always Autumn, posts a tutorial about how to sew a circle skirt, from leather, in less than 20 minutes, it’s time to sit up and pay attention! And award her a badge! Here you go, Autumn.
Best Woven Skirt
We are very vocal about our newest fabric love, double gauze! So when Beth, from Beth Being Crafty, made this double gauze skirt, we simply fell in love! Beth, please accept your award!
Best Spring Skirt
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…when we saw this skirt, we were completely smitten! Jess, of Craftiness is not Optional, made it for her little girl’s Rainbow Unicorn themed birthday party. For Realz. And then she released the free pattern for the skirt with a tutorial. Totally, completely, unquestionably the best skirt of Spring 2015! Jess, please accept this award we humbly offer you!
Thank you, thank you, and thanks most of all to all our fabulous skirt seamstresses without whom these awards would not be possible! Keep up the great skirt work, and we’ll see you back at the end of summer! In the mean time, if you see a skirt you want to nominate for the Summer 2015 Skirt Awards, drop us a line.
