As soon as I saw the Scarborough Fair skirt pattern, I knew it would suit Indigo well. This is a new pattern by Alicia Paulson. I am a huge fan of everything that Alicia makes. Her taste is impeccable and she has such a beautiful consistency to her style. A nightgown she made for her daughter with embroidered trim down the center was the inspiration for my Christmas nightgowns this year.
This pattern was created to work for all ages and all sizes because it is made up entirely of rectangles. You just plug your measurements into a simple formula. This gives you the cutting dimensions for your project that will be tailored to fit your unique body shape.
I used a Japanese yarn-dyed plaid shirting for this project. It was relatively inexpensive and I found it here at this new-to-me-fabric and yarn shop called Red Beauty Textiles.
One really great thing about this shirting is it hardly wrinkles at all, while worn or coming out of the dryer.
Indigo has taken a particularly liking to this skirt paired with a sleeveless shirt and has asked if she could wear it to a few upcoming events, including her first day of homeschool co-op next month. So it has her stamp of approval. I love it on her, too!
It's a sweet, simple pattern and one I'll definitely make again.
