Bouncing Bubble Skirt Review

Serendipity.  When 2 things combine and make one perfect combination, that’s serendipity.

Floating bubbles and flitting fireflies.  Serendipity!  We ended up making 5 pieces for our final look.  The Jocole Bouncing Bubble skirt, a Bimaa shirt, a Raven Hoodie, the matching doll bubble skirt, and the ribbon belt.

A few sewing thoughts.  The Jocole Bouncing Bubble skirt pattern delights the seamstress and wearer alike.  Easy to sew, fun to wear.  (Serendipity!)

The matching doll skirt, sewn from the same fabrics, allows the seamstress to test out the pattern before sewing the real thing.  And results in miniature cuteness!

The Jocole Bouncing Bubble skirt pattern has no pattern pieces, and is a tutorial style pattern.  Basically you start with rectangles and end with bubbles!  Delightful!

The Bimaa shirt.  We’ve sewn the hooded version of the Bimaa and the shawl collar version, but never our favorite look, the cowl neck!  It was time.

The white fabric is refashioned from 2 white t-shirts, one from Mommy, one from Daddy (serendipity!) and the ruffle knit was leftover from making this Beachy Boatneck.  (Mr. Skirt Fixation said this piece of the ensemble, his favorite, was a home run!)

The Raven Hoodie.  During All The Skirts: Clever Charlotte and Mabel Madison, we stocked up on some Clever Charlotte patterns, and the Raven Hoodie stood first in line to be sewn.

We made the top half pretty much as written in the pattern, but on the bottom half, we started making bubble hems.

More and more and more layers of bubble hems using Alida Makes tutorial for Project Run & Play.  The end result is an edgy hi-low silhouette from luscious crushed velvet.  With a faux fur hood!

We topped it off with a vintage ribbon belt we made instead of the tie front on the Raven Hoodie pattern.

In a nod to Alida’s Style That Kid ebook, we gave the photo shoot our very best effort.  Bubble props to echo the bubble hems.

A glowing vintage jar to accentuate Sarah Jane’s Wee Wander fabric in Summer Night Lights and Glow Friends.  (Although you can find this fabric many places on the internet, we recommend purchasing from Urban Sew.  Not only are they sponsoring this edition of All The Skirts, but $1 from every purchase goes to help foster kids in need.

If we make it to the top 10 in Project Run & Play’s Bubble Sew along, we’ll be back next week with behind the scenes photos, thoughts, and inspiration!

  1. This is great! I love all of the pieces and the photo shoot. I thought about making a bubble skirt for the contest, but my youngest, alas, said she didn’t want a bubble skirt. I am learning not to make things that probably won’t get worn! 🙂
