The second skirt for All The Skirts: Peekaboo Pattern Shop & The Fabric Fairy is the Skyline Skort.  This fun skirt has a pair of attached shorts underneath!  The Skyline Skort is a very versatile skirt with so many different options!  You could make this skirt 10 times and never make exactly the same look.

The Skyline Skort comes in sizes XXS to XXXL.  It can be made in either knit or woven fabrics.

(The shorts underneath are knit no matter what.  Unless you choose to eliminate them which is another option.)  The waistband, pockets and pocket trim call all be made from different fabrics, if so desired.  The Skyline Skort comes in 3 different lengths, mid-thigh, above knee, and knee lenghts.  Of course, if you are taller than the average female, you will have to add more length, like we did.

It is fast and easy to sew the Skyline Skort pattern.  It only took us about an hour.  As with all Peekaboo Pattern Shop patterns we’ve sewn, the directions are easy to follow and clearly illustrated.

One detail we really love about the Skyline Skort is that gathering across the front.  It’s so flattering, and we had the most amazing fabric; it draped beautifully!

We chose to use black organic bamboo fabric from The Fabric Fairy to make the Skyline Skort.  Can we take a moment to show/tell you about how soft and amazing this fabric is?  If only you could pet your computer screen!  The other fabric we used is Black Magic Paisley Cotton Lycra knit.  It’s durable, a nice weight and comfortable.  Allegra deemed this her new favorite skirt, and wouldn’t even take it off for me to hem the skirt!  Good thing it’s knit fabric and you can do that!
