But I really think you could call this pattern "Everything But the Kitchen Sink"...you get a ton of options with this pattern. So much so, I'm not going to break it down for you like a normal pattern review...I just wouldn't be able to give an honest review or do it justice. So for our stop we have the Maxi Skirt option (just 1 of the 9 options!).
When I showed the girls all of the options, they were most excited about the maxi skirt...they have both been begging me to make them one, so this was the perfect excuse.
I feel bad, after seeing all of the amazing variations of the pattern on the rest of the tour, that I probably chose the simplest option there was, but it's what they wanted...so that is what they got.
I actually used knit jersey and sewed up a size 12 and a size 10...yes my littlest is moving into tween sizes, yikes!
To keep it loose and flowy, I omitted the pockets...and by doing so, I think this pattern sewed up faster than it took me to tape it together!
|Just look at that stripe matching...pat on the back to me!|
|This fabric didn't repeat as much, so I wasn't able to match the stripes...hopefully it doesn't look to off. She didn't mind|
And here Sophia is showing you just how comfy they are...they still allow you to MOVE!
I'm kind of loving the color combination and just how comfy it looks! Her biggest recommendation is to pay special attention when attaching the straps and two bodice pieces. The pattern has a neat trick to make all the seams on the inside, but if you get ahead of the instructions, you could goof it all up.
