Pattern Challenge and Double Layer Twirly Skirt


To keep myself on track for sewing this season I joined a pattern challenge at Come and See the Seitz. Here are the goals I've laid at for myself:
  1. finish the jumper planned for Glory.
  2. make matching skirts for the girls.
  3. make a Sunday dress for each of the girls.
  4. repurpose 2 shirts for Caleb.
  5. make a tie for each special Sunday for Caleb. (Easter, birthday, etc.)
  6. finish the planned shirt and skirt for myself.
  7. And to do this all before Summer.
Ok now I can keep going on and on here but I better stop. There are so many other things I have on my mind to make but one of the things that Sarah states is to make these attainable. So I can't put too many things on this list or else I'd never get them all done.

One of the things that I wanted for this list was this Double Layer Twirly Skirt but I finished it before I was able to post about the pattern Challenge. I made this skirt sans pattern and I'm happy with how it turned out for the most part. I made the waistband too wide so I'll be fixing that later. I like how my gathers turned out. (I don't like gathering!)

I don't claim to be the genius who designed this skirt. I saw the Modkid Julia pattern pics by Patty Young and thought it was so cute but too impatient to wait to order a copy so I thought I'd try it out on my own. It's not exactly like the Julia skirt (remember, no pattern) but what do you think of it anyway?

  2. Hey! I'm so glad you joined! Your goals look great and I'm glad you paired them down, it's good to make them attainable! You can always add on goals later if you think you can handle them. The skirt looks adorable, nice work!
