Late last month, the illustrious Melanie from Above All Fabric invited me to review a pattern for her (cue SQUEAL).
May I present Pink Fig's Hippy Chick Skirt:
I used Moda's Origin's line (yellow, brown, grey and green...are you kidding me? How can I refuse that?) Mine is the skirt on the right of the above pattern picture...the Bohemian version.
There's a lot of decorative stitching you can't see on the picture. Note: "Decorative Stitching" is just a fancy way of saying "you'll have to rewind your bobbin A BAZILLION TIMES."
The Bohemian skirt, as opposed to the Classic skirt (both are included in the pattern), leaves some of the edges raw so they'll fray after wear, which adds a little extra pizzaz to the skirt.
The pattern was easy to follow, even for a gal like me who tends to "guesstimate" as much as possible. And the skirt is VERY WEARABLE, due to the drop-waist that keeps the bulk of the gathers and ruffles below the waist/hip line.
