Can you believe I have been working on a free pattern since April of this year? What started as a pinafore, then became an apron wrap dress, which became a top, which became a skirt. I simply could not make up my mind! Committing to something as a creative can be hard, but I have dedicated this year to follow through. Although an idea may change, at some point I need to make a decision and stick with it.
Once we returned home, I kept thinking about what type of garment I wanted to create. So while I snuck my Patagonia wrap pants out of the dirty clothes hamper for the third time, I dreamed of a skirt that would be lovely to feel fancy in at the grocery store, and comfortable enough that you won't forget to take it camping.
The Calma Summer Skirt is the perfect wardrobe staple that transitions well into Fall. It works best with fabrics that have drape and can be sewn up in 1 day or less. It is practically a zero waste garment, and you can save your scraps as I teach you scrap buster projects over the Fall and Winter months to help you reduce what gets thrown into the trash. No scrap is too small.
Have you sewn your own skirt? Do you want to write a positive review or advice to other sewists? If so, you can leave me feedback here
Here are some makes by my lovely testers. I must say that the testing process was the most fun of everything. My heart leaps seeing people creatively express themselves through sewing. Everyone has such unique styles and perspectives.
That's it for now!
