The next skirt in this edition of All The Skirts is the Skipalong Skort. I know I probably say this every time, but this is Annie’s new favorite skirt! She loves so much about it.
The Skipalong Skort, by Peekaboo Pattern Shop comes in 13 different sizes from 3 months to 12 years. Good thing, because I’ll be sewing these up for Annie for a long time to come!
Now when given a choice, I almost always add shorts under a little girl’s skirt, but you probably remember this was part of the Modern Chloris mini wardrobe collection and we were including this skirt in our Flower Market look which included leggings. So no shorts this time. But for sure next time!
The Skipalong Skort is a knit skirt pattern. With pockets. (That deserves it’s own sentence!) And colored accents and little optional bow. There are two length options, and you can easily do what we did and lengthen it by cutting the length to a larger size if you have a tall child too.
One thing I really appreciate about this pattern is dimensions for the rectangular pattern pieces. It saves paper and time in tiling and cutting.
I’m starting to sound like a broken record here, but the instructions for the Skip Along Skort, like literally EVERY PeekABoo pattern I’ve sewn, are easy to follow and well illustrated. At no time was I confused or unable to follow an instruction. But don’t worry, if you get stuck, just email Amy, she’s very helpful!
Since I eliminated the shorts, the Skipalong Skort was a super fast sew. I think I completed it in less than an hour.
All the fabrics used are generously sponsored by Art Gallery Fabrics. There are 2 solid knit fabrics used for the waistband, pocket and pocket trim. The main knit fabric is from the Skopelos line, called Paparounes Crimson.
I have seen many things made from this knit fabric, and admired them all, but let me tell you, this fabric is even more vibrant in person and softer in hand!I promised to show you how well each piece pairs with all the others in the Modern Chloris mini wardrobe collection, so here’s the flat lay collage. Either top can be worn with the Skipalong Skort, and of course the leggings, jacket, and mini Senna Tote accessorize perfectly!
