Firstly let me tell you this is a free pattern available for girls and women if you join the Sew by Pattern Pieces Facebook group as a freebie celebration for reaching 2000 members and I’m on the blog tour, having been one of the testers* for this pattern. Lauren is a lovely person and great designer, excellent at what she does!
What’s not to love about the Glamour Swirl Skirt? It’s designed with a knit, full circle skirt with a yoga waistband and optional side seam pockets and waist ties. It’s available in ladies sizes (24″-48″) and girl sizes (1-14). It’s super quick and super simple and a must have for any girls or womens’ all -year-round wardrobe.
I made my oldest “a twirly, swirly, fun skirt” during the testing phase with leaf multicoloured spandex/lycra (contents unknown). The fabric recommendation is a 4 way knit with 50% stretch. I went with the pockets and ties. Printing and assembly is really easy and especially with the layered option for printing the pattern, it’s an ink saver.
We love, love, love this skirt and miss 3 has also put in her requests by pulling out fabric from my stash that she likes for her skirts. Sew by Pattern Pieces also has a number of other patterns that are worth investing in if you want to check out the Etsy page.
*The pattern was provided to me free of charge for testing but all opinions expressed are my own and I received a copy of the finalised pattern for taking part.
