The Versatile Wrap Skirt {A Make it Perfect Pattern}

Taking photos for this blog post took forever! A combination of getting your 5 and 7 year olds to take the photos and using a tripod and a timer meant a challenging photo shoot! It doesn't help that when I look at the photos I can see the weight I have gained. I think I have been living in denial but photos are ever truthful unfortunately! Anyway back to the sewing...

I purchased this pattern  when I first got back into sewing so probably about 5-6 years ago! It is a simple pattern where the pieces are cut from the measurements given. I know some people hate this and prefer to have pattern pieces but I actually really like having tracing out the pattern pieces!

I wore the skirt out before I had put the button hole on the side as I really wanted to wear it out and I was really pushing it to get it done! At first I was happy without the button hole but after wearing it again today I have now put the button hole in it as the ties stay in place better with it.

I have now pulled out heaps of other fabric that I could use to sew myself skirts and can see that before long my wardrobe will be full of them! Hooray for ME sewing!

Laila Ruffle Dress by Bobkin

This dress is just the most ruffley girly dress ever!

I must admit I was a little scared of the invisible zip but I got it in ok and it wasn't as bad as I thought. 

The fabric is Circa by Jennifer Paganelli and it is just perfect for this pattern. There are a few other options in this dress pattern including a double ruffle(this is the single!). 

Pattern is available today or tomorrow soon! Head over to the Bobkin FB page to keep an eye out for the release.
