The Jolie Skirt

My first project of the year was the Jolie Skirt, a good way to start! I had the pleasure to test this skirt for Mélanie from Filles à Maman, who is releasing the pattern today, as part of issue 10 of One Thimble.

The Jolie is an A-line skirt with elastic waist and I know I am partial, but the skirt is adorable and is available from size 12 months to 14 years which means you can have plenty of use with this pattern.

I tested a size 5 of the version with a front pleat, but you can make a plain front as well.

The skirt can be made in woven or knit fabrics and is an easy and fast project yet with a lovely result!

I used chambray for the main fabric and Tana Lawn Liberty print for the waistband and tie. I confess I had other plans and my intention was to make the skirt in blue, but my pink lover daughter changed my mind and convinced me on a pink one. Lucky me, I have another girl that asked me for one in blue. 😉

The instructions are great and Mélanie listened to the testers team and was very meticulous, to make sure you get a great pattern.

  1. This is such a beautiful and feminine skirt with all your lovely touches, Maria. The styling is just perfect, too! It goes so well with the socks and the top (did you make it?).

  2. Love it!
    I’m a bit partial on pink (love it, especially when it’s such a beautiful hue as this one), but I’m sure my girl would choose blue as well. Aren’t you lucky for sewing in pairs – you can make a pink and a blue version ❤
