A little different from my usual style and fabric choice but here is the Prairie skirt from Bishy Barnababes. This PDF pattern is for woven fabrics and spans right from newborn up to 16 years as well as build a bear and american girl doll sizes and features a fully elasticated waist and a choice of 4 different types of skirt including a beautiful petticoat.
It is important to choose the size based on hip measurements for this pattern so I helped by testing the age 16. The pattern pieces are given as measurements and optional print out templates so you can choose which you wish to use. The instructions are a very detailed tutorial and include all the information a beginner would need including tips along the way with further helpful information too!
The Prairie Skirt and Petticoat pattern has been released today and with the coupon code LITTLEHOUSE there's 40% off it until midnight on the 14th! There is also a FREE heart pocket add-on being included with the pattern to celebrate Valentines Day!
There is so much possibility to let your imagination lose with fabrics, lace and trims on this pattern that every skirt you make could be completely different. I am going to try the petticoat pattern next, it has 2 different lengths of tulle both doubled and gathered to give just enough lift for most dresses!
Plus if you join the Bishy Barnababes Facebook group before Valentines Day there will be a FREE childrens bag pattern coming soon!
