With great delight and a little sadness, we present you the final skirt in this edition of All The Skirts: Jocole & Urban Sew! The Pixie Strip Skirt is such a fun skirt that we can’t possibly be sad for long! And to make it even more fun, we used Heather Ross’s Far Far Away line of fabric from Urban Sew. And then we added a lacy, knotted shrug! Lets take them individually:
Jocole Pixie Strip Skirt:
This Jocole pattern is pure fun. Like for when your girl is ready to kick up her heels and have a blast! It has a cute little handkerchief hem made from the 6 strips of fabric. You can probably tell from the photos how light and flippy this skirt is! Whenever a gust of wind came along, the skirt started to dance all on it’s own, and Annie would shriek delightedly!
This skirt is the perfect skirt to showcase several selections from a line of fabric. Little prints, big prints, busy prints, and so on. The combinations are probably endless.
We also sewed up a Pixie Strip skirt for one of Annie’s dolls, since there was enough fabric left and the instructions are included in the pattern. As well as sizes newborn to 14. This is a tutorial type pattern with only the waist circumference cutout as a pattern piece. So if you dislike tiling patterns, or dislike math calculations, this is the pattern for you!
We chose fabric from Urban Sew in the Far Far Away prints (which are on sale right now!) to make this skirt. Urban Sew has a really nice selection of the Far Far Away line by Heather Ross. So fun! This fabric was soft and easy to work with. One note, if you are going to use directional prints to make this skirt, be sure that they are facing toward the ground so nothing is upside down! We had to turn over the little frogs waiting to be kissed; no sense in dumping a future prince on his head!
The lace shrug we made from the free Forget Me Knot dress pattern over at The Sewing Rabbit. We adore Jess, the mastermind behind The Sewing Rabbit, and were ecstatic when she was chosen as the Project Run & Play sewing master for March. We had a hard time narrowing down all the choices this pattern inspired in us, but finally decided on a Boho-Hippy-Chic look! We flipped the pattern around backward, omitted the lining and the skirt, straightened out the back curve, and ended up with this lacy shrug!
We love just had to feature those awesome knots infront, and we also love how the ties on the knots echo the handkerchief hem of the Pixie Strip skirt!
And we had to make one for Annie doll, since she already had the matching skirt. Then because we were having so much fun making knots, we made a knotted headband too by cutting out 2 more back ties and sewing them onto a piece of elastic.
