It’s been a while since I sewed Annie a maxi skirt. As fast as she’s growing, the last maxi skirt I made her wasn’t maxi for very long either! So it was time to keep the maxi skirt love alive and growing. She fell in love with my ombre maxi skirt last year, and we recently found the perfect fabric.
For the pattern we used the girl’s version of the Jocole A-line maxi skirt. This time we sewed a size 6 in width, and size 10 in length. (She’s so lucky to have a mom who sews for her!)
The beautiful fabric is blue ombre double brushed poly from Simply By Ti. This is Annie’s 1st garment made from double brushed poly. Just like everyone else with their 1st double brushed poly garment, she is in total adoration over the softness and comfort. This fabric is also available in a pink ombre color. Which Annie would have adored as well!
Interestingly enough, recently Annie went shopping in our attic where her older sisters store the clothes they’ve outgrown until they fit Annie. It was very fun for all of us to see how some of the first skirts we sewed and refashioned for Aria now are fitting Annie!
It was intriguing to see how much our sewing skills have improved since then too. Refashioning is a good way to put old clothes to use again, to stir the creative mind, and to get back into the sewing groove.
We sometimes still refashion around here, but more often we have been choosing to sew a garment from start to finish.
We’re excited to see where our sewing journey takes us next! And we absolutely love working with small fabric shops like Simply by Ti. Please go check out their excellent selection of garment fabrics. Simply by Ti is a small fabric shop run by a mom who had a difficult time finding good garment fabrics online, so she started her own shop with really great garment fabrics. She’s super friendly and willing to help her customers with fabric selection.
The fabric for this post was provided by Simply By Ti. Honest review is by us! Annie styled this ombre maxi skirt with her Geneva Cardigan, blogged here.
