Cherry Pie Skirt Blog Tour and GIVEAWAY

Friday, June 20, 2014

Today is day two of the Cherry Pie Skirt blog tour for PiePie Designs, and I am so excited to be a part of it! Lisa worked super hard on the pattern, and I promise you it won't disappoint. This skirt is such a super fun and quick sew, and leaves you feeling very productive at the end! With the high-low design, Cherry Pie can be transformed into any summer staple. Madison is a huge fan of skirts, and I am happy to welcome the Cherry Pie to the family. Hurry and grab you pattern as it is only $5.00 for the next week, then goes up to $7.00. You can purchase the skirt HERE. Onto the first skirt!


This is a woven Cherry Pie made in size two with no modifications. I really like how you can see the hi-low design in this type of fabric. Such a girly touch. Love! The fabric is a cotton that I picked up at Wal-Mart ages ago while going on a light bulb run lol. Isn't it darling? I seem to think so :)


Skirt number two has a couple different modifications. I wanted to make the high-low a little more dramatic, so I graded the back piece from a size 2 to a 3. Very pleased with how it turned out. Though you cant really see how it tapers, it looks really good! I am currently reading Style that Kid by Alida from Alida Makes, and I am so sad I wasn't able to retake any of these photos. Learning soooo much from this e-book that I will have to dedicate a post on restyling some of my recent posts... like this one!


The fabrics in the body of the skirt are both from Girl Charlee. I wanted to add some spunk into this one, and decided to have the front floral and the back stripes. I also made a yoga like waistband which makes for a very happy Madison because nothing will dig into her sides. 


And skirt number 3 has to be my favorite. Probably because it is made from this yummy rayon jersey knit fabric from Wanderlust Fabrics. If you want to read about how much I love Wanderlust, you can click on the link HERE. Back to the skirt!


I have a love/hate relationship with hemming knits. I feel like once I get the hang of my serger, my life might be a lot easier. But until then, I will most likely leave them unfinished when possible. This skirt comes together in under an hour. For real. If you are not hemming the skirt, it comes together so easily.

  2. love that fabric from the light bulb run! I will go without lightbulbs just because I cannot be trusted running in for just one thing :) Very cute! It would go over well in this house, for sure.
