Swing Skirt Pattern Tour and Giveaway

Friday, November 8, 2013
Piping, pockets, and a pleat - that's how I would describe Marte of Compagnie M's new Swing Skirt Pattern.  Like all of Marte's patterns, this skirt is unique and very much a recognizable signature of her work.  I'm honoured to be on the tour, sharing my version of this skirt.

Marte describes it the Swing Skirt as: " A-line skirt with a few twists. Big piped pockets & an inverted box pleat make it a sophisticated skirt with just that little extra!".  It certainly does have sophistication and gives you that opportunity to really make it your own.  I chose to keep the skirt all one colour using yellow corduroy, although, I've seen many super cute versions using contrasting fabric for the the pleat and/or pockets.  I did choose to make my own piping out of some adorable Village Green fabric I have left from this dress.  The look was just what I wanted and perfect for Fall.

Although Marte gives excellent instructions on how to sew in the invisible zipper, I chose to an elastic waistband to accommodate how quickly my girl has been growing lately.  There is also an option to add an adjustable elastic for the waistband as well.  Like I said, plenty of options to personalize with this pattern!

And one reader will be lucky enough to win a copy of the Swing Skirt pattern!  I'm sure you will enjoy this unique and versatile skirt as much I did!
