Sally Skirt – 5oo4 Basics Line

~~~Another Basics Line pattern~~~
A few weeks ago, I was part of testing the Sally Skirt from 5 out of 4. Somehow in the chaos of my life, I forgot to write up my  blog post and share. So here I am, sharing both skirts I made! Today is a two for one day! Both Momma Mia and I got new skirts!
The Sally skirt is a seriously fast sew! You can use knit or woven fabric for the skirt. It comes with a yoga style waistband and an optional knotted band as well. The pattern includes large pocket because…well, pockets are life! I made both of these skirts at knee length, but the pattern comes in maxi length also. As always, 5 out of 4 comes with inclusive sizing up to 5x.

First up, I sewed myself a skirt. I made the 5x skirt. I choose the knee length skirt this time which is unusual for me! I was feeling brave this day. I also was thinking the knee length would be super cute with my brown boots this fall!

I chose this fabric because it looks like fall. The colors are a little rustic looking, but the hints of blue warm it up a bit. This print is a double brushed poly that I got from Sew Blessed Fabrics.
Momma Mia also got a skirt too! I tried out a knot waistband for her because I hadn’t made one yet and it was a fun option. It sewed fairly easily even as my first time. If you are nervous about it, don’t worry… 5oo4 Sewing School has a video!   Laura always does a great job explaining and showing how to do things! She also got pockets!

This awesome swim fabric came from Stitchin’ Pretties. Yep, you read that right! I used swim fabric for this skirt! Swim sews up so neatly and quickly. It even has a nice weight for a skirt. The neon green polka dot print is super fun especially since Momma Mia likes neon and green is her favorite color. I was able to make her skirt from a 1 yard cut I had originally ordered for making under roos! I changed my mind when this skirt pattern went into testing! Now I need to make her a neon green top to wear with her new Sally!

Since this pattern is part of the basics line it includes line drawings, photos and videos where needed. It is intended to be a great starter project, but also a great base for making things your own. I can see adding a wider flare, adding a ruffle, or even a lacey trim to this pattern very easily to change the look. Even a high low hem would be a fun hack and easy to achieve. Jessica shared on the 5oo4 blog, how to turn it into a skort, which I plan to try as I wear shorts under all my skirts anyhow!

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
