The Flirty Mini Skirt by Forever 18 Inches, receives its name from the modest notch and slit found on the hemline. Designed to pair with the Forever 18 Inches Flirty Boho Blouse, these classic skirts feature seamed front and back panels, an elasticized back for a universal fit, and look great in fabrics ranging from casual to dressy.
The Option 1 skirt is an Easy-level sewing pattern with front and back notches and a lining.
The Option 2 skirt is an Intermediate-level design and is unlined to allow for heavier fabrics such as faux leather. Features include seamed and topstitched panels and a slit on the front and back of the skirt.
Both skirts are quick-sewing projects appropriate for craft fair and Etsy sellers. Sew a stack of them in a day and make the human and vinyl dolls in your life squeal with joy and gratitude! (You don’t have to tell anyone that it was easy.)
