I’m super excited to participate in my first blog tour for Everything Your Mama Made & More. For this tour I got to make a Capsule Skirt. I bought this pattern when it was first released because I needed a staple skirt pattern and didn’t have one. I sewed the women’s version last week and I sewed the girls version this week. I don’t know why I waited so long to use this pattern! It’s awesomely easy and quick. Even with the added pockets, it was about a 20 minute sew once everything was cut out. It’s one of those things you can sew an hour before you’re heading out the door for sure.
I made this skirt with a thin cotton/lycra blend (I got it last summer for $3/yard) so I opted to finish it with a rolled hem. A little bit of stretch while doing the rolled hem gave it this curly lettuce edge that made the Capsule Skirt a little more girly and cute. Plus, I didn’t have to hem a circle skirt so that’s a win.
My girl is almost 7 but she’s such a string bean so I had to blend some sizes and make some adjustments. Both of which were superbly easy to do with this pattern, and there are plenty of instructions on getting a custom fit inside the pattern. I made her a skirt with a 7 length and a 4t width and it fits like a dream. We have major problems with skirts being way too big in the waist so it’s way awesome when I can make her something she isn’t fighting to keep on all day.
This girls skirt pattern is packed full of everything I always look for in high quality PDF patterns. It’s got tips and tricks for sewing with knits, super clear line drawings with easy to follow instructions, layered printing options, instructions on pattern adjustments and blending sizes, a doll sized pattern included, pocket option, different hemming instructions and a bunch more.
