Seamingly Smitten 12 Simple Skirt Pattern

Today we take a look at the new Simple Skirt from Seamingly Smitten Patterns.  This pattern has 12 options all in one, so there is something for absolutely everyone.  Check out Amber's review for all the details.....


Today I get to show you the Simple Skirt by Seamingly Smitten, and this pattern is exactly what the name says "Simple". 

It comes in sizes 0-26 (XS-XXXL) with the choice of petite, regular or tall lengths - perfect since we can't all be the same height. The pattern also includes step by step instructions to add pockets.  The Simple Skirt can also be made in 10+ different types of fabrics, so the options are endless!!!

I made a size XS with the regular width and length option for the short skirt out of cotton woven. My measurements were spot on with the XS, so making the skirt already started off pretty simple. I also choose the fold over method and used elastic for the waist band. For the finishing touch, I kept the hem as simple as possible and did a rolled hem on it. 

With it being summer, I choose bright colors for my fabric to celebrate this time of year . I love crazy designs and outgoing fabric. The little ducks on the fabric sealed the deal. Plus with all the colors on the fabric I can style it with so many different shirts. This is another thing I like about the design -  I dislike having certain pieces of clothing that only match one color of shirt, I need lots of options to mix in match in my closet. 

This was my first time using a Seamingly Smitten pattern. The fist page gives tells you all the information you need to know about the pattern. It went together very smoothly and I had no problems. Anyone can easily make this pattern from printing out the pages to completing the skirt in a nap time! The simple nature of this pattern is perfect for a beginner, giving all women a chance to sew something for themselves.

I love wearing skirts and have always felt more comfortable in them than a dress.Next time I might try the petite width to get more of a streamlined look. I'm more of a A-line/straight line skirt kind of gal - primarily because I'm afraid of the wind or kids making it rise up unexpectedly - you don't want any surprises for the neighbors! Ahhhhhhh, the joys of having toddlers!! I also think the high low option would be adorable in knit, so now I will be on the hunt for some girly knit. 

'Till next time, enjoy the skirt, and enjoy your self care sewing!
