It’s getting to be that time of year, guys! Yes, Simple Simon and Company’s ‘Skirting the Issue’ time of year. Probably one of our favorite times of the year, as it combines skirts (one of our favorites, surprise, surprise), and giving to girls in need (also one of our favorites.) We have a big blog post coming up next Friday with our main project for Skirting The Issue, but today we are telling you about some other skirts that we will be donating.
We have been doing our All The Skirts series for almost year now! From the first, we decided that we would be giving some of these skirts to charity for Skirting The Issue. We hope that little girls in need will be made happy by these skirts that we really enjoyed making.
From our Scientific Seamstress series, we are donating the Patchwork Twirl Skirts (both the girl and the doll skirts!) done in Imagine Gnats quality fabric. This was one of Annie’s favorites, but she has graciously donated it since she got another one for her birthday.From our Spit Up And Stilettos series, we are giving the Alyson Skirt! This was made with fabric from our stash, and it is in a bigger size. Simple Simon and Co said that the real need is for bigger girl’s skirts, so we hope that this will make some teen feel fabulous.
From our Clever Charlotte series, we are donating the Chickadee skirt and matching blouse made with Mabel Madison fabric.
From our Jocole series, we are donating the Pixie Strip Skirt, made with awesome Urban Sew ‘Far, far away’ fabric. This is such a fun little skirt that we hope can brighten a little girl’s day. We are also donating the matching vest, and the matching doll outfit!
From our Oliver+S series, we are donating this little Sailboat Skirt and Shirt done in Fat Quarter Shop fabric. It’s so nautical and fun, and Annie is delighted for some other little girl to have it.
From our Blank Slate Patterns series, we are donating the Schoolday Skirt sewn with Hawthorne Threads ‘Calliope’ fabric.
In summary, that’s 6 skirts for girls, 3 tops and 2 matching doll skirt outfits! Are you feeling like sewing and donating some skirts too? Find all the information on the Simple Simon & Co. website here.
