This past week I had the joy of testing Darcie’s (Mimi’s Mom) first pattern. The “Saturday Skirt for Women” would be a great basic to have in any wardrobe and comes complete with a large side pocket! I’m always amazed when I come across ladies daywear that does NOT have a pocket. I tried make the skirt using a single fabric for the body and my brain became obsessed with doing a horizontal color block so I gave that a shot as well.
The color blocking also helped ease my frustration over the fact that I only bought 1 yard of the nifty wood print fabric that store was now sold out of. At the time I just grabbed a bit not knowing what I would do with it. It was a big “doh!” when I realized that I wanted to use the fabric for ME and I tend to need more than 1 yard to make something for myself.
Right now you can grab the pattern for $5 if you purchase by Friday. Fear not though if you missed the sale, the regular price of $8 is still a steal for a pattern that I’m sure would become a staple!
