I know I have been promising a tween/teen version of my stripwork skirt pattern to some of you for over a year now and all I can say is I'm sorry! I don't know why this took me so long, but I'm glad it's finally done and I love the way it turned out. It's not exactly like the the girly stripwork skirt because I thought it needed to be a little more funky for the older girls and I added another option that has more of a bohemian look. I think with the changes it's still pretty girly!
Aren't my models so pretty? They were first timers and were so cute and fabulous to work with. They are also sisters, (can you tell)? My sister was a lot older than me so I never was able to have that kind of relationship. I pretty much got beat up my brothers throughout my whole childhood so I really enjoyed watching them interact with each other during the photo shoot. I have a ton of good pictures of them, but I think this one is my favorite.
The pattern will be available for pre-order in a couple of weeks. I'll post it here as soon as it's ready.
On a side note, check out Blue Cricket Design. She made the Girly Stripwork Skirt for her daughter's first birthday and is now doing a giveaway for the pattern. Pretty darn cute!
