The “Bibbity Bobbity Bubble” Skirt
I am a little late to the Colette Pattern party. But this past weekend I finally pulled out my Beignet pattern. And I just know that this particular pattern will be getting a lot of attention in the near future.
My original plan for participating in these challenges was to curtail the number of complicated dresses I have a habit of sewing.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been so great about sticking to that resolution.
But this week was the perfect opportunity to get back on track.
Without a doubt, the skirts that I have sewn get the most use. So my reality check was to create, you guessed it, a skirt. This particular print is a bit over the top, so it will probably not get as much wear as a solid colored skirt, but I am very excited to have found a skirt pattern that I love.
