This is a cute skirt and easy to make.


Life's a Beach

This skirt is even more darling in person! The gathered front and back give the perfect twirl without a lot of bulk. This pattern is well thought out and presented, and I will be making more of them!

My bad

In further review of the pattern I see where the tie belt #2 is an extension of the tie belt 1. All is well and it is a darling skirt (even with a shorter sash.

Just made this skirt and it is darling. However would like to know if anyone else didn't find the directions for using that square pattern piece to use as a tie belt. Either I totaly missed it or it was not copied. I tried to find the author on FB but was unsuccessful.

Made this fun skirt for Kit

I made view B and will be making view A. The skirt sews up wonderfully, fits great, and Kit LOVES it! The pockets and bow tie add to the fun and play value. Granddaughters love this one - and want one in their size!
