A skirt is just the perfect end of summer project, for the really hot and humid days we get here. I don’t often wear skirts or dresses, but when it’s hot (or when I can add lots of layers in the winter) I do love them. I couldn’t wait to try Dana‘s newest pattern, The Anywhere Skirt.
I had been hoarding this print by Alison Glass from her Handcrafted collection. I decided I’d better make something with it (and have enough leftover for more projects!) before Handcrafted 2 came out. It ended up being the perfect match for this pattern. I auditioned 3-4 other fabrics, but this one just felt right. I think the print totally can make the outfit, so pairing it with a simple tank or sweater is easy and effortless.
Towards the end of the project I was still a little wary. I had left the skirt long enough so I could determine the length that would work best. Worried that it had gone a little too much Little House on the Prairie with it, I *may* have crumpled it up and thrown in on the ground. Stepping away seemed like it was the best bet. I came back to it a bit later and was able to find the length I like, and finish!
Dana’s pattern is really beginner friendly and walks you right through to the end. I love Dana‘s little funny and friendly tips and how encouraging she is throughout the pattern. This is a great skirt for beginners, plus you can adapt it for any size. The skirt is made to fit using your chosen measurements! I know my girls want one each already.
