It is a super busy time of year so thank you for taking a moment to stop by!
Today is my day to share with you the Runway Skirt Pattern that Skirt Fixation just released!
Oh and guess what?!!?? It is on SALE from now until the 10th! And On top of an already great sale, you can sign up for a fab giveaway for 1 Runway Skirt Pattern and a $25 Urban Sew gift card. See the Rafflecoptor link at end of the post.
The Runway Skirt features 3 skirt lengths; knee, midi and maxi. It really is such a comfortable skirt, thanks to the knit. Also very stylish, thanks to the elegant godets. I had a goal during my “break” to make a few items for myself. So far I have found that I suck at goals and I don’t know how to “take a break”! I am really really really grateful Aubrey asked me to join her blog tour so I could at least make one item for myself before the end of the year! LOL
The pattern also comes in a large size range, 00-24, and I am wearing a size 2. Sadly, I am not blessed with curves but I love the shape of the skirt and the godets which add flare and shape to my body. Wahoo!!! See more details on the pattern HERE.
I used Art Gallery Fabric and Katarina Roccella Lavish Knit for the main body of the skirt and Art Gallery Denim for the godets. The pattern does call for a lighter weight fabric for the godet but I really wanted to add the denim so don’t tell on me ok! Hahahaha!
Aubrey did a wonderful job on the Runway Skirt tutorial and I can’t believe it is her first pattern! It is very well written and illustrated and so easy to follow. I would say if you are a confident beginner seamstress you can tackle this pattern!

Hello and Happy Friday,
This month has flown by, right???!! It has for me too! So it was nice to stop for a minute. grab my camera and my favorite little lady and head to my newly founded photo spot. We had a lot of laughs and got a lot of pics with some beautiful fabric. Aubrey. from Skirt Fixation, has created a beautiful collection of fabric called, Floral Radiograph. What is Floral Radiograph you ask?? Well here you go:
Floral Radiography is the procedure of x-raying delicate flowers to create art. Over 100 years old, this practice is almost as venerable as x-ray technology itself. Because of the sensitivity of x-ray technology, composition difficulty, and the fragility of the processing method, most floral radiograph attempts do not turn out. But the ones that make it to a finished product are so stunningly, hauntingly beautiful they make the endeavor worthwhile! The tiny community of artists who make floral radiographs do not limit themselves to flowers either. Whether it’s the ability to see beyond the naked eye, or the similarity to silhouettes and shadows, floral radiography translates beautifully to fabric because the owner of floral radiograph fabric can use it to create something that transcends the flesh of nature and touches the very bones.
Pretty cool, right??!!
I choose the Black and White Boarder Print in cotton. Which is super soft and flowy!! It was a breezy day thanks to a storm coming, which made the fabric drape like a dream. Lucky me!!
I had envisioned making a skirt for the tour because every time I think of Aubrey I think of skirts! HA! So I used the Gemma Skirt pattern by Violette Field Threads. I made the skirt with a few modifications, like using a gathered skirt instead of a circle skirt and I also adding length. The end result was a full, flowy midi skirt!
I have a thing for Black and White fabric, it’s timeless! BUT, she is also offering the print in several other colors…
Guess what, you can win a $50 credit for My Fabric Designs. See Skirt Fixation Blog for more information. The giveaway runs from April 25 to May 8.
Thank you Aubrey for having me on your blog tour!!!
Until next time…
