The final skirt for All The Skirts: PeekABoo Pattern Shop & The Fabric Fairy is the School Belle Skort. There are many things that set this uniform skirt above the competition.
For starters, the School Belle Skort is pleated in the front only. No more wrinkled, unpleated pleats in the back from sitting on them repeatedly.
Next there are the shorts underneath to keep your school belle covered at all times. We used the shorts as an opportunity to DISGUISE some fun fabric underneath. (That’s the theme for this season’s Kids Clothes Week!) School uniform; boring no more! We used Nosh fabric from The Fabric Fairy. Megan was kind enough to let us try out some Nosh fabrics for this pattern, and shorts take less than 1/2 yard, even on the largest sizes.
This particular Nosh Organics fabric is called Capri Blue/Persimmon Stripe. Nosh Organic knit fabric is totally something you want next to your skin! Soft, pliable, and simply delicious sounds like food, but it’s really that amazing! The other fabric we used is khaki from our fabric stash.
Another way the School Belle Skort scores above the competition is an adjustable waist. So she might be able to wear it for more than one school year. Or for a full school year at least! The large hem allows for increased growth too.
The School Belle Skort comes in 13 sizes from 3 months to age 12, spanning preschool through middle school. Talk about hard working!
The School Belle Skort is easy to put together, but produces professional results. An A+ for sure. The pleats are topstitched in place and around the adjustable elastic openings in topstitched down too. If you are looking for a skirt that can hold up all year long, this is the pattern for you.
And because Annie’s Grandma will surely wonder, no, Annie did not get glasses! But she was tickled to wear Allegra’s old pair from when she was small for this photo shoot. She is also wearing her Aster Cardigan from this blog post, and her Music Class Blouse from this blog post.
