I made view B, the simple version. I used an ITY knit and foldover elastic. The whole thing was done in 15 minutes! I'll be making a ton of these.
I made four of these skirts. I used knit fabric with a lace overlay. They turned out so cute! I love this pattern. It is easy to use and the results are fantastic. Thank you!
I made the Roebuck Bay skirt as soon as I got the pattern. I love heirloom-style sewing, so it was right up my alley. In fact, I made two! The only tricky part is aligning the tucks and lace at the back seam. I would send you pictures if I could figure out how to do it. Thanks for this fun pattern!
The pattern for this skirt was easy to use. I did the white/lace version. Finished item is very cute.
