Stripwork Skirts


I made these two little skirts a while ago when I was on my Pink Fig Stripwork Skirt marathon. All up I made probably 6 of these little skirts.

This is the size 3 skirt.

This is the size 6 months.

I love that they almost match but still have their own unique look.

This is an awesome pattern that you can use to make a cute party skirt, a light weight summer skirt (like the two I made here) or use a heavier fabric that will be suitable for Winter. 

The beauty of sewing patchwork or stripwork skirts are that they are very affordable. You can match cheaper plain fabric with a small amount of expensive printed fabric for a unique look.

I already know that I am going to have too many skirts in my girls wardrobe this year because they are so much fun to sew :-)


  1. Adorable! My Little Miss has way to many skirts hanging in her closet for the same reason - they are so quick and easy. Love the patchwork idea. Something I've never considered.

  2. Oh, I don't think a girl can have too many skirts. These are gorgeous, Sherry! Love the colour combinations.

  3. They are so pretty! Love the fabrics. I'll have to make some for my girls :)

  4. Thank you for your comment on my creepy treats...
    I can't believe you sewed all those clothes, I wish I could sew nice small seam allowances like that. The Pink (pea) coat is SO ADORABLE!!!

  5. So sweet!!! You are inspiring me to make matching skirts for my daughters :)
