Skirt Fixation and their quest to sew All The Skirts?
Well, they asked me to round up the Oliver + S skirts I had sewn - it was quite a little trip down my sewing-memory-lane...
The absolute first pattern I bought and garment I sewed using an Oliver + S pattern was the Sailboat skirt - I combined it the Hopscotch top for an adorable outfit for my then 18 month old:
When girls are still little, they have a combination of diaper butt and protruding gut that makes skirt wearing (in my opinion!) a bit of a style challenge. But, not to be deterred, I made another:
Another pattern that I've made multiples of is the Hopscotch Skirt - I made a denim version with no pockets, and a linen/cotton one with pockets. For both, I didn't do buttons down the front; I just sewed the buttons on through all layers. The skirt pulled on easily, so for my kid's shape, functioning buttons were not necessary.
Another super cute pattern that I need to re-visit is the skirt from the Sunday Brunch pattern...
I have an idea to make this in a knit - I think my daughter would really love it in a comfy fabric. It's a great pattern!
I've also sewed multiples of the 2+2 skirt - a great pleated skirt pattern - can't go wrong with a pleated skirt!
Last, but not least, was a kind of bold-colored corduroy Music Class skirt - another ingenious pattern that I need to re-visit!
So, I've not made all the Oliver + S skirts - I don't own the Badminton Skort pattern (no clue why!). I took advantage of the discount code offered to buy a Hula Hoop skirt pattern. And, I own, but have never made, the Swing Set skirt (although I've made the top).
So, pop back over to the Skirt Fixation blog, and enter to win Oliver + S patterns and gift certificates to the Fat Quarter Shop! And don't forget the discount code for the Oliver + S site - I know I didn't!
