I’m so excited to tell you about the Shaffer Sisters’ first e-book pattern release: the Betty Skirt!
These lovely ladies are always creating great clothing for their own children and now they have banded together, combining their individual skills as only sisters can to make an e-book worth of options for a yoked skirt.
The basic design is inspired on the deep yokes of the 1920’s. I was a pattern tester and made the version with the small pleats. There are three other skirt options in the e-book along with instructions on how to get a perfect fit using your child’s measurements.
Bean’s 3T size skirt was made late one evening. I decided I’d start the skirt even though it was late, but then it was finished before I thought it necessary to stop. The shape of the pieces make the construction and cutting out super simple. The pleating was the most difficult part and even that was a snap.
Of course getting her to stand still for a photo is still another story. She’s worn this skirt already a few times and I love the length on her right now.
I really think you’ll love this e-book. Congratulations to the Shaffer Sisters on a great first release!
