Summer has come with a very hot vengeance in most parts of the Northern Hemisphere.  So that means you don’t have to wait any longer for the 2016 Spring Skirt Awards Ceremony!  Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

Best Woven Skirt Award

Bianca starts off the ceremony with a smashing skirt made from bias tape appliquéd onto fabric to make this skirt.  Seriously!  Run, don’t walk, over to Thanks! I Made Them, Sew Can You to read all about this amazing skirt.  Here’s your badge, Bianca.

Jess, one of our sewing blogger idols from The Sewing Rabbit, made a tutorial for this darling wrap maxi skirt.  Just wait until the end of the ceremony to start sewing it…the sound of so many machines might be a bit distracting!!!  Jess, here’s your badge.

Best Little Skirt

Yes, we know.  It’s another skirt pattern we’ve sewn recently.  But that’s seriously how awesome these little skirts are!  And the double cuteness of these striped skirts from Holli of Hello Holli is just beyond award winning.  Nevertheless, here’s your badge, Holli!

Most Creative Skirt

Please ignore the fact that we’re awarding ANOTHER badge to a pattern we’ve sewn.  Focus instead on this question: how do you creatively make a plain skirt fun and exciting?  Bonnie from Whisk ‘Em has this little conundrum figured out!  Lucky girl!  Bonnie, here’s the cherry on top…your badge:

Most Fun Skirt

What’s more fun than matching Mom?  We can’t think of anything when it involves a skirt this darling!  ZowieZo and her daughter definitely earned this badge.

Best Skirt Refashion

If we could award a lifetime badge for this refashion by Miranda of Inspinration, we would.  And it’s not just because we sent her the UGLY skirt that she refashioned.  Nope!  It’s because she’s the refashioning queen!!!

Fancy Skirt Award

We’re aware that every time Katy of No Big Dill makes a skirt we give it an award.  And you know what?  We’re okay with that!  Even when it happens because we sent her some fabric we designed.  Because everything Katy does is award worthy.  So Katy, please accept this badge we humbly offer and try to find some room on your shelf for another award!

This little skirt epitomizes spring.  Puddles, raindrops, bare feet.  Sylvia from Lily en Woody created spring in a skirt, and we ADORE it!  Sylvie, here’s your badge!
