Spring is officially here, and so you know what that means; Winter Skirt Awards time!  The winter of 2015/2016 brought us some historic skirt making.  Seriously, grab yourself a snack and have a seat because you are going to want to hang out and admire these skirt creations!

Best Woven Skirt Award

First up we have the Best Woven Skirt Award.  Hands down, this award goes to Teresa of Dandelion Drift.  This lady’s Arielle skirt stole our heart the moment we saw it.  Maybe it was the pattern matching across the button placket?  Here’s your badge, Teresa.

Best Skirt Tutorial

Sometimes in the sewing universe, there is an event called a sew along.  And when it’s a week long occasion for a skirt that’s pinch-your-cheeks cute, there’s really no contest!  The Ani-Mazing skirt sew along produced the cutest skirts probably in forever!  Here’s a badge for the amazing ladies of Little Lizard King.

Best New Pattern

Now we think that pretty much every skirt should have pockets; with only a few exceptions.  So with that in mind, you’ll understand why we award the Best New Pattern badge to Kimberly of Straight Stitch Designs for her queen of pockets skirt, The Wedgewood.

Best Knit Skirt

Really, this award should say Best Knit SkirtS because Heidi, of Elegance and Elephants made THREE darling knit skirts for her daughter, each of them worthy of this badge!  Click through to see the other two cuties.

Best Maxi Skirt

Project Run & Play Season 11 brought us some fantastic skirt action!  Seriously, every week we were tied up in knots over the cuteness of the skirts!  But this maxi skirt by Tasha of Glitter + Wit really takes the cake.  Tasha, please accept this badge.

Best Little Skirt

Again, Project Run & Play is in the spotlight because of this little skirt.  Courtney, from Sweeter Than Cupcakes, created the most perfect BB8 skirt.  If you’ve seen this skirt, you know how much we love BB8, and why we’re awarding Courtney’s skirt this badge.

Most Creative Skirt

We’ve made bubble skirts for little girls before, and we’ve made circle skirts for both big and little girls, but the twisted bubble twirly circle skirt Kennis of Itch To Stitch made combines both.  It is so incredibly creative we just can’t stand it!  Be sure to take a closer look to see that fabric and how she made it (because it’s really easy!)  Kennis, here is your well-deserved badge.

Most Fun Skirt

If it were possible, we would award the skirt Rebecca of Dobbin’s Bobbins created, more than one award.  Seriously.  A skirt in which her daughter can sit down, open the pockets, and play dollhouse?  It doesn’t get better than this!  Rebecca, take a curtsy as you accept this badge!

Best Skirt Refashion

In the long lasting civil war between skirts and pants, Debbie, of Lily Sage and Co, gained a victory for team skirts when she refashioned a pair of wide leg pants into this fabulous skirt!  Debbie, we’re delighted to give you this badge!

Fancy Skirt Award

You’ll recognize this skirt from the halls of Project Run and Play also.  After all, who could have missed a skirt this fancy?  It’s the brainchild of RaeAnna, of Sewing Mama RaeAnna.  Her little girl truly was the luckiest girl around.  RaeAnna, here’s your sparkling, fancy, glittery badge!

Best Winter Skirt

We’re pretty sure everyone will be talking about the skirt Cassie made every holiday for years to come.  Cassie, from Lily Shine Boutique does nothing halfway, and this skirt.  Oh, this skirt!  Made from the branches of two trees, Cassie truly created a masterpiece.  We really have no words, so why don’t you make an acceptance speech for this badge, Cassie?
