“I love this style of skirt, had this pattern on my wish list for a while, glad I finally purchased. Directions are very simple.”

This is the kind of skirt that you can just live in! I've hiked, camped, rode bikes, wiped noses, went to church, and had great adventures in my gypsy skirts over the years! They are so comfy and have so many options (size range, length, and embellishment) that I’m sure you will use this pattern over and over for years to come, as I have. The wide waistband is so flattering for mamas (they cover my “I’ve-had-four-kids-roll” nicely). With no zippers or other closures to fuss with, they sew up very quickly too. Create your own style in just a couple of hours! Detailed instructions and color illustrations are included for easy construction.

I really like this pattern a lot! I made a skirt for my daughter that she loved (and one for her AG doll to match), and finally made one for myself today. Just love this style -- it's very flattering, and it only took me about 2 hours from start to finish, including drafting the pattern. Thanks so much!

This is such and easy and adaptable recipe. I made a skirt for me in an evening and I love it! I added a patch pocket on one side because as a mom to twin toddlers, you always need extra storage! My mom loves it and I'm already planning on making more for her, me and my little girl.
