Happy Spring! The end of last week was a beautiful preview of things to come around here – seventy degrees, breezy, and lovely. It’s the kind of weather that inspires a girl to finally make good on her promise to crank out a new skirt. It’s the kind of weather that makes one want to share the happy.
I’m not sure what the weather is like today where you are, but here it is nothing like last week. We had a little bit of snow yesterday, and four-to-eight inches of the white stuff are forecast for tomorrow. Right this second, though, I am choosing not to be in cold, wet New Jersey. Instead I am at the Polka Dot Cottage where the sun is always shining, the flowers are always growing, and the temperature is always perfect for wearing a custom-fit wrap skirt.
And so “sharing the happy” is the order of the day. This skirt is the newest pattern in the Download Shop. If you can take your measurements and do a little simple math with them, and if you are reasonably comfortable with your sewing machine, this project should be a snap. There are no zippers or buttons involved, no tricky terminology to trip you up. And the great thing about a wrap skirt made to fit your particular curves, is that it is so flattering! The fit is like a tailored zip skirt, but more forgiving, if you were to lose or gain a pound here or there.
