I have been pretty quiet on the blogosphere lately but have been super busy sewing up a storm and was lucky enough to get to test the new Fancy Flounce Skirt by Little Kiwis Closet. This was the first time I've got brave enough to put my hand up to test a pattern and I'm really happy I did!
I'm a big fan of Little Kiwis Closet patterns especially the Street Smart Sweatshirt and the new Fancy Flounce Skirt is no exception.
It looks so fancy and you can imagine the squeals of delight it brought to this three year old. It wasn't hard to sew but you do need to have access to an Overlocker/Serger for your rolled hemming. I had only done a little bit of rolled hemming before this project and after finishing the skirt I have to say my rolled hemming has got pretty speedy!
The Fancy Flounce Skirt takes more time than some projects I embark on, but the overall effect really is quite stunning and special. It would be a lovely skirt for any special occasion and twirls well for dance class.
The pattern ranges in size from 6-12 months through to 12 years which I love in a pattern. The pattern is available here ...and just to prove that I really am a fan...here's whats on my sewing table...
