|Pattern Description: The Monkey Bar Skirt is a free pattern from crafterhours. It's basically a knit skort with the option of making it single or two tiered. I made the two tiered version (view B). As a mom of a 3 year old who loves to wear skirts, I am always concerned about modesty while she is playing. So I add another layer with bike shorts or leggings which can be super warm during summer months. |
So I am loving the skorts. I've even taught her the correct? word for this outfit - Skort!
Pattern Sizing: 2T-10. I made size 3T based on miss D's measurements and its spot on.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, it did! Although she is a little young for monkey bars still but we can be sure this skort gets a lot of use at the playground without me worrying.
Were the instructions easy to follow? The illustrated instructions were really easy to follow. Gathering is not one of my favorite things to do and I can never get the gathers to be even but hey.. as long as there is no gather police, I am ok
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? Love how quick and easy this is. Love how cute she looks in it and finally super cool that its a free pattern! Thanks Crafterhours!
Fabric Used: Printed Rayon Lycra Jersey from Elliot Berman Textiles.
This skirt was actually a project I whipped up using left overs from my maxi skirt. Yes, it takes that little fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? You betcha! I will be making many more of these.
Conclusion: Friday (candy day) and new skirt seems to be her favorite combo. She was a HAPPY girl this morning when we went outside for a photo shoot. The top is store bought but I freezer paper stenciled HAPPY on it, inspired by Bianca's HAPPY Shirt.
