Love Notions – Ravinia Skirt Updated

Hi Friends! Can you believe I have managed three blog posts this week? Seems excessive after being MIA for a bit, huh? The truth is, I have been making some super cool things! This skirt is no exception. I sewed it up a few weeks ago and finally it has rereleased and it is the Feature Friday pattern which means it is ONLY $5!! Yep, $7 bucks work of savings on this deal! Today only though, don’t waste time.

Rivinia Skirt 5x maxi with pockets (1)

This is the Ravinia from Love Notions and it was just updated in their new, more inclusive sizing. The size chart now includes a 59.5 inch hip measurement. I made a 5x waist band, added an encased elastic in the contour waistband, and graded down to a 4x hip. I then height adjusted for my 5’1 self. Then I sewed up the Maxi length and added an extra band of color at the bottom. I did this because my fabric was JUST short of the needed length and it is really easy. If you need details, just let me know in the comments and I would be happy to make you a step by step tutorial of it.

This pattern is rated for confident beginners.

  • 3 lengths: maxi, calf & knee
  • Gathered pockets
  • 3 waistband options: yoga, contoured & maternity
  • Print at home
  • Large format file for copy shop printing
  • No-trim pages + layers

Do you know what my favorite part of this pattern is? These pockets? How amazing are they especially when assembled with contrasting fabric! I adore them! They really take this basic skirt to the next level! I love the binding on the pocket edge and am strongly thinking about how fab it would be in a striped fabric.

My beautiful fabric is double brushed poly and is from Stitchin’ Pretties, but sadly this colorway was such a hot seller, it is already gone. Zoe, is the same print in a darker colorway and is gorgeous as well!  There are tons of great options at Stitchin’ Pretties, and you can still take advantage of the buy 2 continuous yards, get a bonus cut free” deal.

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!
