flirty skirty


Oh looky here, it's a new pattern!

A skirt recipe for any size and wool weight with a pretty lace border round the bottom. It also has a clever concealed hem at top for a bit of elastic you'd never know was there but will ensure you aren't left with your pants, er skirt, down. Just right with boots and tights on a cool day or with bare legs when it isn't.

And because I like to celebrate these things I'll give away a copy to a random commenter or two this time next week. Please remember to leave an email address!

I also meant to say the link above is to but the pattern via ravelry. If you aren't a Rav member feel free to email me directly and I'll email the pattern to you for $5.

Adorable model wearing such a cute skirt. My friend's first granddaughter is due in October and I will make her the smallest size for her first girly outfit. I can hardly wait to see it on her. I found you on ravelry and am so glad I did!

What a cutie! I admire knitters as this is a skill I never learned.

Blossom said...

thats just lovely.

How incredibly cute is your girl! The skirt is also extremely cute and I'll be buying the pattern and getting Mum to knit it for my girls.

Tracy said...

Oh that skirt is beautiful, Do you think it would work a little longer?

sooz said...

Thank you all for the encouragement!

Tracy, the skirt would most certainly work at a longer length! The pattern is actually a 'recipe' designed to tell you how to make the skirt in any size with any yarn and any length.

Just. Too. Cute. My Miss Three would love it!

Did you make up this pattern Sooz? It's lovely! I would definitely make this for Tash. Sadly she shows little enthusiasm for the groovy jumpers I've knitted her, prefering one her great-grandmother created from a 1950s pattern. She's so retro-cool, my girl.

Kate said...

Love it. Can see it on both my granddaughters. Can see it on myself too!

Helen Morgan said...

@greatbalancingact - it's a worry isn't it?! Iris is showing mummy-dressing-me refusal signs already and went out with the most inappropriate shoes the other day.

Sooz, I love the skirt!

Kylie said...

Oh it is lovely - well done - Love the colour - fingers crossed - although I may just have to purchase the pattern if I am not a luck commentor!

Turning Japanese said...

I really like it, as I do most of your creations. It *is* beautiful, and looks like it must be fun and comfy to wear, judging from your model...
