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.
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.
