Today we have the privilege of reviewing , a pattern by Thread Faction. And not only that, we’re part of an super awesome blog tour where a bunch of Thread Faction patterns from their new SS2016 collection are being reviewed. At the end of this post is a giveaway for 1 Thread Faction pattern, and a link to another Thread Faction giveaway you won’t want to miss, plus links to all the other bloggers on the tour.
Alright, back to Skirt #106. This pattern will surely be sewn again, which is saying a lot, considering how many skirt pattern we are amassing! The shape is awesome, which allows for super movement and flexibility. Just check out this collage we made of Skirt #106 in action.
As if the movement in this skirt pattern wasn’t enough, there are shorts underneath, which is a must for any little girl. Cartwheels, here we come!
Skirt #106 is a knit skirt pattern. We used some of our hoarded Art Gallery Fabrics knit fabric from the limited edition Priory Square line. Skirt #106 can be made in 9 sizes from 2-10. The waistband is elastic, Annie’s preferred method. Also, the waistband instructions teach you how to make it in a very professional, finished manner. It’s really worth it, even though it’s a little more difficult and took us several tries and sessions with the seam ripper to get it exactly right. We sewed a size 6 with added length beyond the size 10 lines. This is because if this summer is anything like last summer, it will be about 6 inches shorter at the end of summer! So, planning ahead.
