Willow & Co Remixed Clover Skirt

Kids Clothes

So a girl will do just about anything to have a chance at winning some fabric, right? I am in love with Willow & Co patterns, and right now they are having a huge back to school competition. One of  the categories is for best remix. I am the kind of person who likes to follow a pattern to the letter, so to remix a pattern is a big deal for me. 

I started small, remixing the clover shorts pattern, into the clover skirt. It was a simple alternation, but I think the pleats and the ruffle waist look super cute in the skirt version 😉

She's a cutie alright

And Ruby seems to like it too. I think I’ll be converting a few more patterns into skirts.

Thanks for stopping by. Make sure you check out the other entries

I was hoping to have a fawn lily tunic to go with this outfit, but it’s not quite finished But when it is I’ll be sharing some pics of that too 😉 Plus stay tuned as I’ll be posting shortly about the Persimmon dress I made for Piper, and let’s just say I’m in love.


Pattern Testing the Alder Skirt

Pattern Testing, Skirt

Some more pattern testing, but this time it’s something for me. The womens Alder Skirt by imagine gnats. There is also a girls version that I can’t wait to make for my girls.

Given that we are heading into winter, I decide to make this skirt with a heavy weight fabric, and team it up with some tights.

I found this olive green denim at the op shop and knew it would be perfect.

love the top stitching

I much prefer to be on the other side of the camera, but have to thank hubby for letting me boss him around. Now I just have to make something for him 😉how great is that wall

Thanks to Rachael for allowing me to test this pattern. This pattern covers a large range of sizes and I found it easy to follow. The skirt came together quickly and easily and I love the top-stitching detail.
