Meet "Kinley"

"Kinley's Kilt"

 "Kinley" with a classic blouse and a simple cardy.

"Kinley" with the little blouse I made the other day 
and a little hooded vest I made for Abby a while back.

Wow! I received a ton of email after my last post about this little skirt and it appears that I'm not the only mama out there who is frustrated with the clothing choices for our growing girls. Needless to say, I spent most of the weekend working on this new pattern for you! Meet "Kinley's Kilt". Love love love this one because in the pattern you get to decide how long you want the skirt to be. So, it's perfect for everyone and you can customize this one to fit any size. Even grown-ups! Although, I have to admit I haven't tried it in a grown-up size but, there isn't any reason why it shouldn't work for most women. I should get a mama to test it for me in an adult size. Speaking of testers, "Kinley" went out to my testers yesterday evening and fingers crossed I get great feedback and don't have to "tweek" very much. As you can see from the photos above this little skirt goes well with so many things. Just imagine it with a snappy little blazer and argyle socks. Especially if it were done in a great plaid! I am itching to make one of these in a wool plaid for Abby but sadly I didn't have any in my stash so I just may have to run out this week to see what I can find. Anyway, hope you like it and keep an eye out for news of "Kinley's" arrival in the shop soon! Yeah, finally a new pattern and more are on the way!!!

Love it. The pleats look so professional. I am very impressed with your final version, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this pattern and try it out.

This would definitely be cool made up like a little 'school girl' outfit... maybe with knee highs and a blazer and beret in a contrasting fabric to the tartan of the skirt? If I told my 8 1/2 year old that I wore it to school, I could probably convince her to wear an outfit like that LOL

I LOVE your patterns, but don't have a little girl yet (two little boys so far). I'd be happy to be your "tester" for Kinley in an adult size!

OOOOOHHH! Great pattern!I need this for our grandirl, but I'd love to test this in an adult size. I have a young friend who loves sewing and wants to make sewing her lifework. She would love this pattern and look like a doll in it. She wears about a junior size 5 or 7. She and her mom make it a point to look for 'modest' clothes.I would love to share it with her!
