BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Wednesday, 1 September 2010
I was a sew-er (sewist? Seamstress seems too professional!) in my past life (pre-child), a quilter, too.

My very favourite part of quilting was choosing the fabrics, followed closely by piecing them together. The quilting itself? meh. I could take or leave it. And binding, ugh.  Now I have discovered a way to do just the best parts of quilting AND make little girls happy... win!

I have launched a line of girly twirl skirts ~ patchwork, strip pieced~ in fun palettes and for the active girl.  My daughter loves her skirts and wears them for climbing trees, and swinging on the monkey bars all year round.  I love them because they last~ unlike pants that get too short or the waists are too big or too small, but never just right~ these skirts fit and grow with the girl, giving you a good 2 years for the toddler set. Win for the moms!

All skirts are 100% cotton, machine washable (and dryer, too, though hanging to dry will be better in the long run).  Seams are all serged and top-stitched for a professional (and tidy!) finish. Both styles pictured here are made with about 50 pieces of fabric pieced together!

I am working through my (not insubstantial) fabric stash and adding new fabrics, too from some of the hottest designer lines.

There are a couple of custom slots for the patchwork skirts are available in the Etsy shop, and the stripwork rainbow skirts are launching tomorrow at Lily Pad Landing at 3 PM est.
And I am in search of some good names for the patterns, too! ♥
