Filling out the skirt spectrum, I’ve made some pink patchwork skirts. They’re fun to dance and twirl in, and easy to lounge in, making them perfect for festivals.

It’s lightweight and flowing, just what you need for dancing the hippie can-can.

The wide jersey waistband is crazy comfortable. The waistband is tight enough to always keep the skirt up, even with the pockets loaded, but the fabric doesn’t have enough tension to create a muffin-top.

There are 12 panels of cotton, silk, and a few vintage polys, plus elastic lace at the top and pink trim at the hemline! Every skirt winds up being put together a little differently, so each one is unique. Plus, I’m only making three of these!

If you’re feeling rosy you can get this skirt in my Etsy shop!




I’ve been sewing a lot of gypsy-esque skirts lately. They’re fun to wear (twirl much?) and the most comfortable thing you’ll ever put on.

They started out as playa-garb, but I quickly discovered how perfect they are for just about everything else too.

The patchwork skirts are made from cottons, silks, and vintage polys. I used cotton jersey and elastic lace for the waistbands. The jungley skirt is a rayon with lycra waistband, and sadly is the last of its kind.

All these skirts are in my Etsy shop, and I’ll be posting more over the next few months.
