Last week we gave you a sneak peek of the Seattle Skater Skirt we made when we were reviewing the Spunky Girl Skater Skirt.  The two skirts are basically the same skirt, one in girl sizes and one in women sizes.  We even used fabric from the same line, the Riley Blake Designs knit fabric from The Fabric Fairy.Seattle Skater Skirt pattern reviewed by Skirt Fixation

The Seattle Skater Skirt comes in 8 sizes XXS to XXXL.  Just for reference, a female of almost any size can make herself a skirt like this because where the girl measurements start, the women’s measurements begin.  The only difference we found is that the women’s skirt sits on the hips while the girl skirt sits at the waist.

The Seattle Skater Skirt can be made with either knit fabric or lightweight woven fabric.  It is a circle skirt with a knit waistband.  No notions are required beyond fabric and thread.

Just like the Spunky Girls Skater Skirt, the Seattle Skater Skirt has pockets!!   Seriously, can we rave any more about a knit circle skirt with pockets?!?!?

Again, there are the thoughtful extra details like bartacked pockets and waistband notches which are so helpful in construction.

This Riley Blake Designs knit fabric, purchased at The Fabric Fairy, is delightfully soft and supple.  These flowers are flowy and geometric at the same time.  This print actually comes in 3 different colorways.

I really don’t have too much more to say about the Seattle Skater Skirt pattern because it’s so similar to the girls pattern.  But that’s a good thing because it means for once I can make myself clothes that are as cute as my daughters!
