BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Friday, 24 September 2010
I am having so much fun making skirts~ I forgot how much I enjoyed sewing (ok, being honest, how much I love buying fabric!).  With some help from the Facebook fans the three styles in my line have names. Super duper chocolate fudgey cool names.

First, is the Kaleidoscope Twirl Skirt™.  I have always been a lover of kaleidoscopes, and the fact that this skirt turns round and round, flaring out in a full cicrcle to show off its many multi-coloured patches reminds me of those fabulously beautiful and simple toys that offer a new vision with each turn.

The Kaleidoscope has three ruffled tiers and a dropped waist.  It consists of over 40 pieces of fabric. It is a LOT of skirt~ the 4T hem measures more than 15' around!  Each skirt fits a wide size range meaning it will see several years of wear. Great for twirling and pair it with some leggings for climbing, swinging, jumping...  Sizes 2T - 10.
The second style is the Carousel Twirl Skirt™, which is a stripwork skirt with a coordinating band on top and bottom ~ reminding me of the carousel with its brilliant display of colours between the top and bottom of the structure (and of course it turns around and around!).  Full circle with a little belt.  Available in doll size - girls' 10.
And finally, the Carillon Skirt™~ a little narrower, this patchwork skirt has 70 pieces of fabric in coordinating prints and designs.  With its bell shape and 5 tiers, it is named for the beautifully ringing carillon towers of bells. This one is best suited for the post-diaper crowd as it is narrower through the waist/ hips. Sizes 2 - 10.
All three styles are machine washable, hang to dry and 100% pre-washed cotton.
All seams are serged for a professional finish and many are top-stitched as needed for durability and style.
Each skirt should fit a growing girl for 2-3 years and is versatile and comfortable~ suitable for every season and reason!

After all, isn't every day a good reason to wear a pretty skirt?!
