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.
