When we chose to sew all the skirts from Peekaboo Pattern Shop we didn’t know they were going to be releasing 2 new skirts very shortly. But when we saw the new skirts we were so excited to add them to the list of skirts to sew! The two new skirts are skater skirts, also sometimes called circle skirts, one for women and one for girls. Let’s start with the one in girl sizes, the Spunky Girl Skater Skirt.The Spunky Girl Skater Skirt comes in 13 sizes from 3 months to 12 years. There is one pattern piece, an optional pocket piece and a measurements for the waistband. This is the third circle skirt we’ve made since we started All The Skirts, but there were some differences that make this one our favorite yet! (Here is Allegra’s circle skirt and here is Aria’s circle skirt.) First of all, the Spunky Girl Skater Skirt can be made from knit or woven fabric while the waistband is always from knit fabric. Hello comfort! Secondly, this circle skirt pattern has pockets!! Yes that’s definitely worth three exclamation marks! As you can see, Annie loves pockets in her skirts and I had to keep telling her to take her hands out for at least one photo! And last of all, it’s very easy to grade between sizes or change length as needed, which I’ve never seen on any other circle skirt pattern, free or purchased!The directions are very easy to follow for the Spunky Girl Skater Skirt. I love how all the instructions are actual photographs. And there are some really thoughtful additions to this pattern. The pockets are bartacked in place, something usually reserved for expensive, high end clothing. And the notches on the waistline are just perfect. I’m not usually so geeky about notches, but the placement of these really saved me some headache! Speaking of geeking out, let me go crazy over this fabric for a minute. This is Cottage Triangles in gray by Riley Blake Designs knit fabric from The Fabric Fairy. The first time I touched Riley Blake Designs knit fabric it stopped me in my tracks. I was at a fabric store that had a HUGE selection of knit fabric and I was running my had along each one (okay, okay, I was petting the fabric!) Riley Blake Designs knit fabric was the softest one there. And of all the different knit fabrics I worked with from The Fabric Fairy, the Riley Blake Designs knit held up the best to laundering. And here’s one last photo for a sneak peek at next week’s skirt. Now it’s time for you to get involved! We’d love for you to sew along with us.
