Aivilo Charlotte Designs Pleated Skirt

Hi all, my name is Nicole and I am the owner/designer of K & A Couture. I'm a full time working mom of three and run a little boutique in my free time!! Today I'm here to tell you about this adorable little skirt by Aivilo Charolette Designs!
This skirt is super cute and a fast sew!! I'm a self taught seamstress so any time I find a pattern that has new ways of doing something I eat it up! This skirt the waistband construction was not at all what I was picturing in my head from looking at the pictures. I'm sure we (fellow sewers) all do this at some point, look at items in pictures or in person and try to figure out the construction of it in your head? You don't do that? Oh, Ok well I may be alone in that but I do it constantly, I mean I'll have my daughters friends over and tell them "Hey come here I wanna see your shirt" haha yes I'm that weird Mom. Anyways back to the skirt!
I absolutely love piping and the detail of it used in this skirt is simply perfect!!
The skirt is a fast sew (just make sure you don't go too fast you mess up your seam allowances!) and an easy to follow tutorial. I'd say because of the piping, it's probably beginner plus; but the tutorial tells you exactly how to do the piping so if you're a beginner who is looking to tackle new things this pattern is perfect for you!
My daughter wore the skirt to school yesterday and she got a ton of compliments on it! So I would say it's definitely second grader approved! She's already asked for another one in different fabrics, as well as requesting one for her little friend's birthday party present!! HA, Good thing it's a quick sew!!
