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.

amh field study skirt 1

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.

eyelet lined skirt 2

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!

    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!

    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
