Hello! Another Wacky Wednesday sale for you! This week, Ellie & Mac has the Trendsetter Skirt Pattern on sale for only $1! Plus, they are having a buy one get one free sale (WW patterns excluded). It’s a great time to stock up on patterns. 🙂
I bought this pattern last summer when it released, but had never sewn it up. I had always wanted to… but never had the right occasion for it. Now that I have made one, I am glad to say that I don’t need the right occasion for it-it’s such acute skirt!
The skirt is gathered into the simple no fold yoga waistband, and has a high low hem. There even is an option for inseam pockets (of course I added them)!
I had this JoAnn’s fabric is my stash. I had just two yards and accidentally didn’t have enough. I had to squeeze the front out of what was left, and I actually ended up narrowing the hem by about one inch on each side. Thankfully, you can barely tell!
I think next time I’ll make this skirt in a solid or a print that is printed on both sides. I prefer high low skirts where the backside of the fabric isn’t showing-but I should have known that before cutting. Thankfully, most others don’t notice something like that. 🙂 Do you think you’ll sew up a solid or patterned version first?
Grab the pattern here. Remember-it’s only $1 today!
As always, let me know if you have any questions or comments! Thanks for stopping by!
