Patter testing! The Taking Notes Skirt by Sewing In No Mans Land

Kelly Crawford is the author of the beautyfull blog Sewing In No Mans Land.  My first meeting with her blog was when I discovered the Taking Notes Skirt for girls.
I was in the look-out for an easy but classy skirt patter for my little girl, and this pattern struck my liking.
It might have been the pictures, because they are so fresh and cheerful, but Kellys instructions are very easy to follow, so within a little while I had a lovely skirt for my little twirling girl.

So, when Kelly posted that she was looking for pattern testers to make her pattern even more user friendly and perfect, I did not hesitate to enlist as a pattern tester. She got a lot of requests, and I was one of the lucky ones to review the pattern.

As you might know, a tutorial for the pattern has been out for a long time on her blog, so there are probably a lot of you who all ready know about it and even have made one. I would like to shear some pictures of my results. I will not go in to the details of the sewing, except that it is soooo easy, and everyone can make one!
I made mine out of a quilting weight fabric I had in my stash. I love the flower pattern and the colors.They are so me! I will bring this with me on our family holiday next week!

The skirt is topstitched where ever possible, wich give a great touch of professional sewing.
It allso has nine boxpleats all around the waist. The waiste band gives it all a geat silhouette.

You should all just put away your computers, and wip out this skirt right away, because it really is that simple!
