    I am really excited about the skort. That's helpful when little granddaughters are very active! Love it.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great Pattern, 8/1/2013

    Reviewer: (Austin, Texas, USA)

    I have made the skort once, the dress once and the top twice. I have been happy with the results of each piece. This is a very unique and charming dress/top. It was fun and a pretty quick sew. I will make many more of these.

    Reviewer: (Tbilisi, Georgia)

    I love this skort so much - it is perfect for the little girl in your life who is concerned with being pretty even while hanging from the monkey bars. It sews up very quickly and simply, with the clean finish I have come to expect from O+S. The top is slightly more fiddly to sew, but yields a beautiful result.

    Reviewer: (New York, USA)

    I made the top for my daughter and was told by several people that it was worthy of a boutique. I give the pattern most of the credit. It is a little fiddly with the yoke and ruffle pieces, but it all comes together beautifully. I made a dress ( without scallop hem) from tracing to finishing in an afternoon. Definitely a pattern I will make many times.

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, South Australia, Australia )

    A brilliant design that fills the gap in sewing for girls that want to wear skirts but still want to play! Perfect to introduce to the school uniform. The skirt can be made with or without the scalloped edge. The under shorts are sewed neatly between the waist band and skirt, no seams to rub tender skin. Such a clever pattern. http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/8082032680/in/set-72157631656846884 http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/8084693941/in/photostream/

  • Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern. To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers. The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing. Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.

    Errata

    1. In the first printing of this pattern, the instructions contained a minor error. On page 3, please add the following sentence to the end of step 4 under the section "Finish the Armholes": "Repeat this step with the top/dress back, stitching two rows of gathering stitches to the top raw edge."
