Welcome to LilyGiggle’s Blog tour day 3. If you haven’t heard already, Beth, the owner of Lily Giggle, reopened her shop about 2 weeks ago. I’m here today to show you the Sassafras Skirt and also give you a glimpse of a brand new Flutter Sleeve pattern that will be coming out soon. Sorry, its not out yet ladies, but soon… Testing will be starting in a couple of weeks and it will be released soon after that. Hold on ladies, its coming…
I’ve always been a big fan of LilyGiggle’s work. The 1st pattern I picked from her was the Rings of Ruffle’s (ROR) Skirt. Over the years I’ve made plenty of ROR skirts and pants for both my daughter and to sell in my Etsy shop. Beth has always been such a wonderful person and designer and so easy to communicate with. Here are some details about the pattern I did for the blog tour.
Skirt Nitty Gritty:
*Elastic waste band
*Sizes 2 – 12
*Above the knee fit
*Made with Knit-Can also be made using recycled t-shirts
*Has a finished measuring chart
*Tips on sewing with knits
This skirt has a similar look to the Rings of Ruffles pattern, however, Beth has created a simplified ruffle skirt without losing all the pizzaz. My absolute favorite part of this pattern is how simple Beth has made it place your ruffles using the included pattern pieces and your trusty pattern marker. You get the big impact ruffle look in a snap without the headache from working that ruffle foot for hours. The Asymmetrical top skirt helps keep all this ruffles contained -hehehehe 🙂 🙂
When I was putting this outfit together I started by using my favorite knit from April Rhodes Arizona collection by Art Gallery. The Flutter Sleeve Top fabric is from Wanderlust, which is quickly becoming my go to knit shop.
This pattern works so well with the Flutter Sleeve Top. It is now my go to pattern! LOVE!!! It provides such a big impact with the double ruffled sleeve for such an easy quick sew. Sew time was only an hour.
The skirt can easily be used for all seasons. A summer/spring look with cute sandals or wear it in the fall paired with boots. The Flutter Shirt will also be offered in a long sleeve version. Yay!!
