Schoolday Skirt review October 8, 2013 – Posted in: Pattern, Sewing
This week I get to review the completely adorable Schoolday Skirt from Blank Slate Patterns. Melissa, the genius behind Blank Slate and the always amazing Melly Sews, actually allowed me to test the skirt months ago and I’m so excited to share the amazing results!
Sofia adores this skirt! She’s generally in to anything that’s not pants, and if it’s got flowers or pink it’s even higher on her list of favorites.
This skirt definitely doesn’t disappoint!! The pattern is beautifully written, the pleats weren’t difficult at all, and the finished product is just stunning.
I tried to put her in a solid shirt with it, but she refused to pose for pictures unless she could wear this striped one. I actually love her mixed prints and I’m pretty sure my 5 year old is more fashion forward than I’ll ever be.
I’d absolutely say if you’ve got a skirt fiend on your hands, this is a pattern you don’t want to miss. I love the hint of vintage mixed with modern details, you can’t go wrong with classic! It’s a great skirt for twirling without all the gathering.
And Melissa is so amazing, as a tribute to the Grandmother she lost to breast cancer, 50% of all profits from sales this week will be donated to the Susan G Komen foundation. Head over to her blog to check out the other amazing work this week and grab those patterns!
