Today we have a first in our All The Skirts series. We actually sewed up a pants pattern! The Lollipop Leggings by PeekABoo Pattern Shop has several options and one of them is a skirt! So of course we had to include that pattern in All The Skirts: PeekABoo Pattern Shop & The Fabric Fairy.
The Lollipop Leggings are probably the only leggings pattern you’ll ever need. There are options for basic leggings, ruffled leggings, a button tab, and of course the skirted version we’re showing you today. All of these options can be made in 3 lengths; shorts, capris or pants.
We’re pretty sure you could make the skirt without shorts or leggings underneath although we didn’t try. The Lollipop Leggings pattern comes in 14 sizes from 18” doll to 12 years. As with all PeekABoo Pattern Shop patterns we’ve sewn, the instructions have clear photographs, easy to follow instructions and minimal pattern pieces.
My absolute favorite thing about sewing the Lollipop Leggings pattern was the way the waistband was constructed. Believe it or not, in all my years of sewing, I’d never sewn a waistband exactly like that, but I think I’m going to construct all my knit waistbands like it in the future. It’s just one of those little details that makes PeekABoo Pattern Shop a go to company for sewing needs.
Does that fabric look familiar? It is by Riley Blake Designs, and we used it here and here in this edition of All The Skirts. Yes, it’s really that awesome! This time we decided to use both the floral and the geometric fabrics in the same skirt!
If you are as enamored with this fabric as we are (and if you aren’t it’s because you’ve never felt it!) you can purchase some at The Fabric Fairy. Megan, the owner, is so sweet and her customer service is fantastic.
Annie’s favorite thing about The Lollipop Leggings is one step dressing! Annie wears shorts in the summer and leggings in the winter under all her skirts, so this pattern saves her a step in dressing!
