Sewing: Little Deer Wrap Skirt


In the midst of my fun with the apron wrap dresses (I'm almost finished with the pattern) I decided to try a skirt. I love it! I have to say this is an example of "necessity is the mother of invention" as Audrey wanted a wrap dress out of this Cosmo Textiles little deer fabric but I didn't have enough yardage for the dress. I was able to squeeze out a skirt however.


Same a-line as the dress and I added some belt loops and a pocket. The loops help keep the tie from riding up and the whole thing from falling apart on those little girl hips! The pocket is just for fun. I like the opportunity for additional top stitching.
 

This is reversible, and on the reverse is more red gingham. The same I used on the Ruffler Blouses for Audrey and Scarlett.


I like both sides of this skirt and Audrey does too. I was working on a different ensemble for her to wear but I think I'll suggest this skirt deer-side-out for Scarlett's Woodland Picnic party. It's a lot of pattern but I think she can pull it off!


Another sewing project finished for KCWC. This means there is another pattern in the works just when I thought I was catching up. I may need to try one in my size too. Something for me...that would be different!

Simply Darling! I hope you do make a pattern for an adult size.

Please make an adult sized one.
Such a good pattern!
I doubt I'd be able to make one myself, but with a pattern I could maybe coax someone else to make one for me...!

very cute. i love the belt loops to keep it from falling apart. i understand the little girl hips. my little one has no bum, everything falls off unless it is cinched up!

Beautiful garment, I also love that it is reversible, so polished. I find the clothes you create for your daughters so inspiring. I hope the weather is "deer" to you for the woodland picnic extravaganza. The invitations are beautiful, love the faux bois touch.

HI!! I love this skirt. All my kids are grown. But I would love to make one for myself. I hope I could make it long, about ankle length would be nice. Then I could wear it in our North Dakota winters too!!! Thank You
