Manhattan Skirt by Terra's Treasures

Today we get to share the Manhattan Skirt by our sponsor Terra's Treasures - such adorable patterns for both boys and girls!  The Manhattan is a great pattern for mixing fabrics - you can also dress it up or down depending on your fabric choice. I just love the patriotic spin that Sarah put on this pattern!


Hello there!  This is Sarah and I am back today with a review of the Manhattan Skirt by Terra's Treasures.  

I actually tested this skirt last year when it came out and really loved how it turned out.  I had not made another one after my initial test skirt though, so when the opportunity to review it came up, I decided it was high time to make another!  

And then...
The pattern comes in sizes 0-6 months to 10.  It features a flat front waist band with an elastic back and has a cute little ruffle inset along the bottom front of the skirt. My current version is a size 8 and fits very true to size.  My skirts were both made with 100% cotton prints that I have picked up over time at my local JoAnn's.  This is a great pattern to have some fun mixing and matching your stash fabrics.  

It also features faux button tabs on the waistband.  I left those off of my stars and stripes version, but put them on my green and pink one.  It adds a cute little touch to the skirt and is a perfect excuse to use big buttons.  

I like big buttons and I cannot lie...
The skirt panels are cut on the bias, which allows for making some cute patterns in the skirt if you use a stripe.  Each piece is clearly marked with a grain line, so cutting the pieces correctly on the bias is a breeze.  

This Manhattan skirt is paired with a sequined top I picked up at my local Target store.

The skirt went together very fast. It probably took less than an hour to fully construct.  I had the advantage of having made it before, but it would still be a quick project for someone making it for the first time.  

This Manhattan skirt is paired with the Terra's Treasures Mainstreet Tee.  

The pattern directions are very clear and well written, as I have come to expect from the other Terra's Treasures patterns I have made.  She includes fabric requirement charts, pattern layout graphics, and detailed instructions with pictures for every step.  

My daughter's second grade award ceremony was red, white and blue themed.  So this skirt was just perfect to wear while accepting her award.  But it is casual enough to be worn through the summer and work as her 4th of July outfit (look at me already done with her 4th of July outfit!)

I am so glad I revisited this pattern.  It is well done, quick and really cute on.  It is a great, all-around pattern.  Now I need to make a couple for my younger daughter, who refuses to wear anything but skirts!  

The pattern does not, however, guarantee the cooperation of your model.  

Until next time, happy sewing!
