Betty Skirt from Shaffer Sisters

Hi guys! The Betty Skirt pattern from Shaffer Sisters will be re-released next week with extended girls sizes, up to size 16x. The skirt is knee length with a deep yoke, inspired by the 1930s.

There’s a pleated, gathered, or button placket version.

Betty Skirt

This is a girls button placket version I made last year.

As you can see, I like to use a vintage inspired (or just plain vintage!) patterns and pair them with modern fabric. Sometimes crazy notions add a fun look. I’m not bold enough for some of my favorite looks, so making for kiddos is fun.

Anyways, the Betty Skirt re-release includes a bonus 18″ doll pattern so I thought I’d pop over and show you. I don’t get to sew as much vintage (inspired, or otherwise) as I’d like; so any excuse to come say hi:)

PS there is a free pattern for this skirt in newborn size here.
