Mommy and Me: Pierside Pencil Skirt by New Horizons Designs

Hi there, it’s Heidi! I’m here to share the most perfect everyday skirt for you and your little one. I sewed up the girl’s and women’s Pierside Pencil Skirts from New Horizons Designs. It was seriously the fastest sew ever. There are three length options (knee, mid, and maxi) and three hem options (straight, curved, and curved side vents). You can even add pockets! I went for a simple straight knee length skirt for both me and my daughter. I didn’t add pockets to mine, but I definitely will in the future! This pattern is suitable for a wide variety of fabrics. I sewed mine up with a sparkly french terry from Hobby Lobby and used a stretchy cotton lycra for the waistband. I added a drawstring to my waistband as well, but this part is optional.

This skirt is the perfect way to dress up your mom wardrobe if you want to get out of your everyday shorts! It can easily be worn with your favorite tee, but can also be paired with a fancier shirt for a night out. I loved seeing my daughter in a skirt as well. She’s so little that she’s never worn a skirt before; she looks so grown up in hers! I am planning several more matching skirts for our wardrobe. Don’t hesitate to purchase this pattern and sew some up for yourself. It will quickly become one of your staple pieces!
