Now You Really Can Make a Patternless Summer Skirt

A few weeks ago, we did a Sew Along with the Shifting Plaids Skirt featured in Stitch Summer 2015. I designed the skirt for my editor's letter in the issue, and we offered it as a downloadable pattern. Now I am so excited to offer you the opportunity to get the fabric and instructions in one great kit, so that you can make this fabulous classic skirt. I like to think of it as Audrey Hepburn meets Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island.  Lotta Jansdotter's big gingham fabric is iconic, and the simple couture features of the skirt–self-lining, a  stitched-down, pleated waist that has a corseted effect–you can get a designer quality skirt for much, much less. Plus, you have the satisfaction of making it yourself in a matter of hours without a pattern. 

I talked the marketing team into making the kit because we had such a great response to the Sew Along and to a class on the skirt I taught at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo. I think we only have a few left, and I wanted you to let you know about this special kit before it's too late to get it. 

Now you can get the kit (fabric + instructions)
to make this classic skirt!

 Just in case you missed the Sew Along  the first time around, here are the links to those blogs:

To get the kit, complete with that gorgeous Lotta Jansdotter fabric and the digital instructions, for a steal, visit, the Sew Daily Shop!

P.S. If you decide not to self-line the skirt, you can actually get two skirts out of the kit–one for you and one for a sister, mother, daughter, friend …

Happy stitching!
