Luna Twirl Skirt

If your bank account is looking a little thin after all the holiday shopping, I have a great deal for you! FREE!! Totally FREE! In addition, to the Luna Circle skirt being free it is also a super fast sew! Like start to finish in an hour or so. I made this skirt for the first time a few months ago with the Mambo collection release and then I hacked it as an add on to another pattern I will share very soon with you.


Today, I am sharing my latest Luna, which was a Christmas gift for Momma Mia. Momma Mia likes skirts and loves to wear clothes that don’t look like any of her friends. I can understand that, I feel the exact same way. My biggest nightmare would be showing up somewhere and someone is wearing the same shirt as me…no thanks! She also recently mentioned, she likes showing up wearing a new garment when she sees them. Ok, Momma, hint taken!

The included options:

  • 2 lengths – “mini” (mid-thigh) and knee length
  • Fabric waistband that can be made with or without elastic.
  • Option for exposed elastic waistband
  • 3 cutting options – double fold, single fold (give two side seams), single layer (perfect for colorblocking!)
  • Finishing options – hem, bias tape, or FOE
  • sizes XXS-5X

I chose the knee length hemmed version again and it fits perfectly on the 2 yard cut of fabric. This Liverpool floral print was picked up at Zink’s in Berlin with the intention of the Luna Skirt. I used the fold over waistband and slid an elastic through to help hold it in place. I love how Liverpool fabric has enough structure to create the perfect twirl effect! While taking these photos, the wind kept catching the fabric and creating a lovely look. I am sad my pictures had the weird shadow, lesson learned…Camera is still fairly new and I am still learning so bear with me.

I couldn’t sew Momma Mia this pretty floral skirt without a matching shirt, especially when she has been asking for solid tops. This is the Jessie top and Momma Mia’s favorite. You have seen it many times here so I won’t talk you to death about it. This is the tunic length so she can also wear it was jeans or leggings. I love versatile clothing.  This fabric is double brushed poly from my stash. I am pretty sure it came from Sly Fox Fabrics.

Merry Christmas Momma Mia, I hope you love it!

Diane Joggers and Sly Fox Fabrics

NEWS FLASH: I still have a major obsession with the Diane Joggers. This pair is perfection using Sly Fox Fabrics “Untamed” Techno Scuba fabric. This was my first time sewing with Techno Scuba, but I can see myself absolutely loving it! Since I am crushing so hard on it – Let’s talk about the fabric first!

SFF Untamed Scuba Diane Jogger Hack (1)

Techno Scuba has a great weight to it, is easy to cut, beautifully printed, laundered well and serged up neatly. I will admit that my sewing machine didn’t love it as much as me, but I think it was because I only had ‘stretch’ needles on hand and I think a ‘ballpoint’ was needed. Anyhow, I got through it and was able to make these fabulous pants! Lucky for me, the only place I wasn’t able to serge was the stitching on my hacked pockets and hemming the pant legs. Untamed has 60% horizontal stretch, but is stable vertically. This means whatever you sew won’t “grow” while you wear it. It also means it is perfect for pants, skater skirts, and dresses.

I continue to make the Diane Joggers because I love the fit of them! If you are familiar with the Diane Joggers from 5oo4 then you know the pattern comes with patch pockets which are actually sewn on the outside of the pants. If you follow my blog, you will also know I did a pocket hack tutorial on moving those pockets to the inside. If you missed it, click here and you can read it. I think something as simple as moving the pocket from the outside to the inside help make this pants more dressy and acceptable for work. I sewed a 4x mid rise height with the fold over waist with a 2x hemmed leg. Here are all the options:

Women’s Sizes XXS – 5X plus all these options

  • 3 rise heights (low/maternity, mid, and high)
  • Shorts, Capri, and Long cut lengths
  • 4 leg finishes – cuffed, hemmed, drawstring, or elastic
  • Information for both hemming and using bands (hello no hemming!)
  • 6 waistband options – Encased elastic, drawstring, Knit, Yoga Foldover, Contour, Maternity (underbelly)

My shirt is also from 5oo4. Here are the options for it. XXS-5X

  • Top, Tunic, Short Dress, and Knee Length Dress Lengths
  • 5 Sleeve Lengths: Sleeveless, Short, Elbow, 3/4, and Long
  • Multiple Back Options: High, Low Ballerina, Racerback Insert, and Strappy Back

I feel like 5oo4 patterns is known for the endless options with each pattern! It is one of the things I love about the 5 out of 4 pattern company! I also love that they are size inclusive up to 5x and helpful when you need tips.
