BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Saturday, 28 May 2011
We have a new skirt!

The TipToe™ Skirt is a little dressier than its Puddle Jumper™ cousin, but still keeps that BTRT sense of fun and playfulness (and always comfort, durability and long lasting fit!)

As part of  the 'Silk a Day in May' Giveaway running all month for our 4th business anniversary, I issued a challenge on our Facebook Page (come and join in!) for a name for this skirt and 'Tiptoe' won the majority in the final decision poll.

The suggestion came with the visual image the skirt evokes... of a girl lifting the hem of her skirt as she tiptoes through long grass or over a mud puddle (places we fully expect BTRT girls to be!)~ of course, with its raised hemline, in this skirt our tiptoeing girl could go right through the puddle safe and dry!

The TipToe™ Skirt is available in sizes from 16-18 inch" doll and 18-24M right up to a 7/8 (or more!).
It has two layers.  The upper layer has a fully encased and secured (for safety!) drawstring for cinching up the hem to reveal the layer beneath.  It is full enough to twirl and the drop waist will grow through several sizes allowing the skirt to be worn for a couple of years, or through a couple of children!
This design emerged by working over and with patterns by Patty Young and Little Lizard King.  In the end it is our own design, but a debt is owed to these designers and their groundwork!
Skirts are available by chance in our Etsy Shop or by custom order.

And finally, I add that all of our designs are rigorously tested for fit, comfort and movement...
