But, I said yes any way because the pictures looked cute and this pattern goes up to size 16! I thought, if this is a good one, I know those that read Sew Cool should know about it. And if you read to the end of the review, you will see that there is an extra treat for you all too.
The Rose Skirt by Filles a Maman is a basic knit skirt with some great pleating details in the front.
The pattern is available via PDF at Filles a Maman's etsy store and sells for $9. You can purchase this pattern in English or French.
Just so you know, the skirt waistband sits on the natural waist. I think that is lovely for this style but my daughter found it to be odd. She is used to pants that have a mid rise (waist band at her belly button) and was uncomfortable with this waist band sitting so high. I am sure she will just pull it down lower, and that is just fine with me.
