A Color Block Skirt for Chloe

06 June

I’d say that Chloe is ready for the 4th of July!

The pattern is A Melon Blocked Skirt, a free tutorial by Simple Simon and Company.  You can find it, along with many other skirt designs, in my Sewing Project Roundup post How to Make a Girl’s Skirt.  The Simple Simon folks made it in an orange / green / yellow combo, but I think it translates well to red, white, and blue.  To make the bow, I loosely followed the tutorial How to Make a Bow Tie by The Ribbon Retreat.

The fabrics are all Kona Cotton.

I love how graphic this is, and how the white stripe so boldly stands out.  Can’t wait for Independence Day!
