I don’t know about YOUR facebook feed, but lately my Facebook newsfeed has been full of selfies of enthusiastic fans of a new line of bold and colorful clothing. First there were rumblings over buttery soft leggings, then loud cheers for the fun and colorful designs. Well, leggings are one thing, but then – there was great applause for cute and comfy dresses and skirts. Gorgeous, practical, COMFY skirts. Sound familiar? Now, what woman doesn’t love a pulled together look that is just as easy and as comfy to wear as leggings… or even yoga pants. What is even better, if you love to sew like us, is making your own comfy and cute skirts. You pick the fabric, sew a few seams…. and a cute new piece is ready to wear a few hours later. NOW, what is EVEN better than sewing your own gorgeously comfy skirt, is a FREE PATTERN for one!! Introducing: the Chloe Skirt from Made for Mermaids – available in sizes for both girls and women!
This beautiful a-line skirt only has 4 seams plus a hem – it is the perfect project if you are just venturing into the world of sewing with knits! You can choose a regular waistband or a wider fold-over waistband. To add to the options, there also is a choice between knee-length and maxi-length. For testing, Eleri and Emily both chose to make the knee length version with a regular waistband. Eleri used a gorgeous floral liverpool and Emily made hers using simple yet lovely dark fuschia cotton lycra . The pattern is drafted for an average 5’5″ height – one of us it above that height and one of us under that height and yet the pattern length worked great for both! The length is also very easily adjusted to suit your preferences.
We’d like to congratulate Made for Mermaids on reaching 15,000 members in their facebook group and we’re thrilled that they are offering the Chloe Skirt pattern for FREE! In addition, they are currently offering 30% off their patterns as part of the big SALE-A-BRATION!! So hurry on over, grab the patterns for both women AND girls, and start sewing!
