Hello dearies! Today I have some more patterns to share with you all. Specifically, the circle and ruffle skirt patterns that helped get us started in the world of sewing our own clothing.
At the left you have the first circle skirt pattern we ever bought. My Mom purchased it after I finished a sewing camp where I made myself a circle skirt. The girls (as in my sisters) liked it so much that Mom went searching for a pattern (something we were very naive about at the time) and came up with this poodle skirt costume pattern. We used it for quite a few circle skirts until the pattern at the right came along. Simplicity 4236 is our new favorite for making half circle skirts, though it also includes an A-line and full circle skirt pattern.
Butterick B4722 was our second skirt pattern that we purchased I believe. We girls made ourselves some similar skirts to view E in a sewing project for our Church’s Keepers club. But since we lost the pattern that we used in our move to Ohio, Mom found a new pattern to replace it. Now that we girls are all grown out of the size range for this pattern we’ve moved on to Simplicity 2412 for our ruffle skirts.
As you can see by the skirts above, we love Ruffle skirts! And we absolutely ADORE circle skirts. If you’re not convinced, here’s some links to some outfit posts we have done featuring the various skirts we have made from these patterns, both past and present:
Quite a long list, huh? Didn’t I tell you we love these types of skirts? And, since you can find VERY similar patterns at the fabric store quite easily, I think I can dispense with the duty of giving you all links to similar patterns. 😉
