What’s more fun that sewing? Sewing with your friends! And eating treats and drinking wine while doing it.
On Friday evening, I got together with some friends and we all made the Pirate Pencil Skirt from Patterns for Pirates. The pattern is PDF and you can buy it here and print it however many times you want. Or if you join their Facebook page, there is a code to get this pattern (and one for leggings, if you’re into that) for free!
This skirt is knit and was super easy to make, only four seams! And they ended up looking fabulous on each and every one of us. The only thing from stopping me from making a gazillion of these is that I don’t have any knit fabric. Or ink for my printer. And there’s a large quilt on my floor (though that didn’t stop me from deciding to make an Easter dress).
Patterns for Pirates offers a bunch of patterns for knits. A lot of them look similar to the LulaRoe clothes, but obviously better quality. And infinitely customizable. How cool would it be to be able to make your own clothes?
I am dangerously close to falling down this hole. I am not afraid. Who wants to join me?
