NEW! Hi Low Ruffle Skirt Pattern

Guess what?
I just put out my 8th PDF sewing pattern!
It's a skirt this time and I just LOVE it, soooo much.

The Hi Low Ruffle Skirt Pattern 



I started seeing the High Low skirts on pinterest a few months back and thought how much my Ella would love them.




She does.
It's just the perfect compromise for us, because I love short skirts and she loves maxi skirts!
A little bit of something for us both!


This skirt is designed to hit a bit above the knee in the center front gradually getting longer, hitting knee length on the side and calf length in the very back.

It's very easy to add length to it, though, if you like longer skirts. Some of my testers added length to make them a little longer.

I'm just LOVING all of my tester photos!
It really helps show the versatility of the pattern. Changing the fabric makes such a difference in the look!

Take a look at all these adorable skirts:

This one is made by my little sister, Megan, in a leopard cotton print.



Isn't my niece adorable?!
I love her.
Ella made me make her a leopard skirt after she saw Sophie's!


This one is made by Diana and I just love it.
It's so sweet and feminine! You can tell how much the little girl loves it.



Sivje added a little bit of length to hers and paired it with some winter tights! Showing that the hi low skirt looks good in any season!

Great for the beach, too. Yara made this one in stripes~ love it!


These are made from quilter's cotton in little girl sizes and are just so sweet and adorable!
This one from Julie. I love how angelic her daughter looks in this picture!


This one is by Angela. I just love her daughter's little sassy pose!


This pattern comes in a wide range of sizes from 3-16!

Tammy made a bunch for all her daughters! How cute are these?!


Equally cute on the little ones and her older daughter.
I love how it's styled here!


Tara also made three for each of her daughters {a 12, 14, and 16}, substituting the ruffle for some eyelet lace and using some of her husband's old shirts for the skirts, leaving the buttons on the front. So cute!






Some of my other testers left of the ruffle as well and did a quick rolled hem.
This one from Jana out of a pretty, floral, cotton.




This one without the ruffle and a rolled hem makes an adorable dance skirt, made by Danielle.


She loved it so much, she made two!



My little sister, Megan, even made one for herself in a 14/16, with a rolled hem. She is 5'5 and wears a size 4.


This skirt is great for the tweens and teens, because it's trendy and simple and they can pick out their own fabrics.

Look at this one Linda made her granddaughter, Moriah. It's so bright and summery!


You can use any type of light to mid-weight woven fabric on this skirt~ changing the look completely.

My tester, Theresa, made hers out of this silky fabric for her daughter.



And Melissa made her daughter one from this fancy, flocked, taffeta.


Jessica made hers with eyelet on the hem instead of the ruffle, too, and even made this top and headband to match! Adorable.


Jenny made hers out of this cute black and white fabric {I have some in my stash}


and then realized that it was cute as a top, too! I hadn't even thought of that!

And. last, but certainly not least is this adorable ensemble by Bridgett. I just love all the pink and bows!
Perfect for Valentine's day!


So.... see how different it can look? I just love seeing what everyone comes up with!
I've even starting getting some customer photos, too!
