Alder Skirt Pattern

Have you all seen the Alder Skirt by Rachael over at Imagine Gnats?  If you are on instagram, I’m sure you have seen this pattern popping up in your feed.

I was fortunate enough to be able to test and sew up the girl version for Sweet Pea.  Whenever I’m sewing for my girl, I have a hard time picking out fabric.  I have fabric that I love, usually simple, muted in colors, not too flashy.  And Sweet Pea has fabric that she loves, bright, vibrant, full of every color in the rainbow.  Well, I dug through my stash and stumbled upon this corduroy fabric that I knew we would both love.  It has the muted colors I love, but is covered in animals.  My girl is an animal lover!

So I bet you want to know more about the pattern and less about the fabric, huh?  It’s a great pattern!  It has great simple lines, but awesome design elements.  I love how the pockets stick out a bit from the body of the skirt.  Every girl loves pockets, and these pockets are great!
