Day 4: A-Line Skirt Giveaway!

OK, y’all!  The last day of these skirt giveaways.  If you’re just tuning in, I made a bunch of really lovely skirts as samples for my Craftsy class, Design and Sew an A-Line Skirt, but can’t wear them all because there just aren’t enough hours in the day or days in the week.  Yada yada, I’m giving them away and you could win one!  I’m giving away a total of EIGHT skirts this week, and today I’m sharing the final two with all of you.

One is the “kit” skirt for the Craftsy class, for which you can purchase the supplies directly from Craftsy, and the other is one that I loved shopping for and making, from eyelet with a full lining.

This print is from Anna Maria Horner’s Field Study line, and I just love the colors and the design.  It’s modern and funky and so AMH, right?  Since this was the core style from the class, it has a single-fold bias tape waistband, and like every other skirt from this class, has an invisible side zip.

My poor mannequin has been dragged in and out of the house so many times this week that she’s listing a bit to one side like a sailor on shore leave, but I think the skirt still looks like a million bucks–a testament to how cool this print is.  The hem is a clean double-turned 1/2″ hem.

I tend to use invisible zips in my garment sewing more often than standard zippers.  I feel like once you learn to put them in, they’re way easier than a standard zip, and I love how clean a finish they give.  This skirt measures 35″ at the upper waistline edge, and while the zip is grey, because it’s invisible, you only see the zipper pull.

At first glance, this last skirt seems way simple and maybe not that exciting.  But when you look closer, you realize that it’s an eyelet with a full lining, so the candlelight cream color has bits of candy pink peeking out at you.  It’s subtle but so cool, I do so love a little surprise treat in my sewing.

This skirt also has the most volume of any of the skirts I’m giving away, and lots of swishy sway to it.  Very 50s in delivery, between the eyelet and the volume, and really a joy to look at.

Here you can see that the lining is understitched and the invisible zip is sewn to the lining at the side seam.  Both skirt and lining are hemmed separately, so you get plenty of movement when you sashay.

And there you have it!  Check out the other three posts to see all the skirts–to win, simply leave a comment on the post!  You are free to comment on EACH of the four posts this week to enter to win one of the eight skirts I’m giving away–in fact, I’d recommend it, as it will quadruple your chances of getting one of these babies in the mail!  International entries are welcome.  Winners will be announced Monday, Feb 18 here on the blog!

  5. Ahh!! These are the two skirts I’ve most been lusting over while taking the Craftsy class!! Love, love, love!

  6. Pretty! I love the eyelet one, though I am not really an eyelet kind of girl LOL. (What shoes go with eyelet?!) The pink lining is awesome.

  7. AMH is my new idol/BFF/I-want-to-be-like-her. I’m really late to the party and she’ll probably get a restraining order against me at QuiltCon. Is she going to QC? OH MY GOD!

    Stopping now…

  8. that eyelet is AWESOME!! love the pink peaking out. Oh I hope I win one of these cuties!

  9. I honestly can’t say which one of these I love more – you’re incredible!

  10. My fave is the eyelet skirt! I almost bought fabric with a similar look tonight, but maybe i’ll be glad i didn’t? Fingers crossed!

    • But at least if you don’t win this one, you can find fabric to make one of your own! Right? :)

  11. I will be happy to receive ANY of the skirts you’ve so generously offered, and on which I have generously fawned. That being said – that eyelet. It’s perfect. I am declaring the colors/fabrics of that skirt a neutral, in that it can and should be worn with anything and everything. This weekend is gonna be so long, wondering if I might be chosen to provide a good home to a skirt in need

  12. Thanks again for the generous giveaway. It’s inspired me to take the Craftsy class (I made good use of the Valentine’s Day sale!). You are such an engaging instructor – so glad to have found your blog!

  13. Oh my gosh, I love those! I especially love eyelet, your work is gorgeous!

  14. Thanks for the hint to comment on all four posts! These skirts are really cute!

  15. This has been so much fun seeing the skirt variations. Difficult to choose a favorite today but I am leaning towards the eyelet. Both are wonderful. Thanks again

    • Thank you so much for saying that! I love the eyelet, too–it has so much volume, and it looks like summer to me.

  16. Love this eyelet with the pink underneath! Would look sooooooooooo cute on my daughter!

  17. I do really love those AMH dot… so mod. And the eyelet is so very lovely with the peaking pink— Love them both!!

  19. I am a waistband and a hemline away from my first skirt via the Craftsy class. It has been fun! The eyelet one here is adorable.

  20. I love the field study skirt – such a good combination!

  21. Really like the white skirt — I have a similar one in black that I love.

  22. These are lovely. I may just need to take the Craftsy course!

  23. I would love the eyelet skirt, i am so tired of winter, it reminds me of summer.

  24. I like the red one! I am a Mom, so white isn’t always practical. LOL! (still lovely, though!)

  25. I love the last skirts! Is my style :)
    Thanks for sharing them with your readers!

  26. I would love the white eyelet, so pretty and I love the pink showing through.
