Let me set the scene for you…
Friday morning, a little after 8 am, I was still in bed (gasp) scrolling through FB and there was a chance to win a free pattern!! All I had to do was be the first to sew up the new Straight Skirt pattern from Little Kiwis Closet and post a picture in the group!
Well, luck was on my side! The skirt took me about 20 minutes total to make, including making toast for the girl’s breakfast, and I was able to grab a free pattern – woohoo!!
This was the same day I decided it was time to start a blog and I jumped at the chance to join the Little Kiwis Closet Straight Skirt Blog Tour.
The important parts:
- IT’S FREE – yep absolutely!! Join the Little Kiwis Closet facebook group for the code.
- It’s fast, like, super speedy!!
- It’s easy! If you haven’t sewn with knit fabric before, this is the perfect starter pattern.
- It has a fabulous size range, 12m – 14!!
- It has options!! Two skirt lengths, two waist band options, two ways to hem and two pocket options – or no pockets at all! (see line drawing below)
The watermelon skirt, paired with a LKC Peekaboo Pocket Hoodie, is below knee length, pocket free with a knit waist band. This outfit is perfect for layering on cool autumn days.
The watermelon fabric is cotton lycra, as are the rainbow bands on the hoodie. The yellow bird fabric is I think a cotton interlock from Spotlight, though I may be wrong.
Believe it or not, the skirt below is the same size as above, in the shorter length! Again no pockets and a knit waist band. This short length is a fun option for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere or will look fab with tights and boots in cold weather.
The palace pets cotton lycra was from Wicked Fabrics, one of my fave online shops.
Now you may be wondering why LKC is offering such a fabulous free pattern? Simple, they are celebrating 5000 FB likers!! Congratulations Little Kiwis Closet!!
