Ashley and Emily from FrancesSuzanne asked me if I'd like to contribute to this month's Flip This Pattern. This month, instead of one pattern that everyone alters, each participant sews up something using any free pattern... if you've done so this year, you can link yours here for an opportunity to win a prize. =)
Anyway, I've had this skirt idea in my head for about 6 months now, and though I've decided I'm not skilled enough at drafting to make patterns to sell just yet, this one was just simple enough to make and offer as a freebie.
I've made it in sizes 3-12, though I've only sewn size 6.
This is a long, reversible, half-circle skirt, with a scalloped hem and elastic waist.
I've put each size into a separate layer so you can print only the sizes you want. The instructions are in a separate file, but they are also printable.
The waistband is a separate piece, which adds a bit of fun contrast if you decide to make it in a different fabric than the main skirt.
Because of the length and elastic waistband, if you are in doubt as to which size to make, I recommend sizing down.
Wouldn't this be pretty in formal fabrics?
My version is made from a pretty floral sheet I picked up somewhere (I think at a yard-sale) and plain grey quilting cotton.
Needless to say, Booper loves it. Gaiw has been asking me to make her one too, so I guess I'll be testing out the size 3 soon. =)
The pattern is available for download HERE. No hoops to jump through, just download and enjoy. =) If you want to link to the pattern, please link to this post, and not the actual file. Please do not copy or distribute the pattern.
And! Don't forget to check out the rest of today's contributors at FrancesSuzanne! There have been quite a lot of lovely free patterns linked up so far. =)
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the free pattern! =)
