Sewaholic Patterns - Gabriola Skirt 

The trendy maxi skirt has been gaining popularity over the past seasons for its flattering bohemian style.

For a day at the beach or shopping around town, the Gabriola Skirt will keep you looking chic in printed fabrics.

A - FF-1687W-A: Printed Microfiber. The skirt will flow smoothly in this fabric.
B - RVK-1771W: Printed Viscose Knit. There is no reason why this skirt can't be made in a knit when the fabric is so gorgeous. This knit from Italy has an amazing soft hand and unlike other Viscose Knits, it has a heavier weight which will create a wonderful drape.
C - WC-1769W: Plaid Viscose with precious blend of virgin wool. It is from the suiting family, but its smooth hand and fine drape will make a gorgeous skirt.

Hi Vivian & J Renee design, The Winifred has an elastic waistline in the back bodice, so the dress slips easily over your head. Also Bluegingerdoll patterns tend not to have much ease at all, they're meant to be a fitted but comfortable figure hugging fit. There are more details on the blog : bluegingerdoll@blogspot.com.au and there is an upcoming sew-along which will go into these topics with more depth. Thanks Abby

That's a good point. I've emailed Abby about this.

There is no ease at all in the Winifred dress based on the pattern envelope. The size measurements equal the finished measurements? It would be almost impossible to get this on.

Such lovely new patterns! I love the idea of Winifred, but am thoroughly confused by the measurements on the back of the pattern; the waist is only 1 cm or 1 in smaller than the bust?
