I love connecting with testers from all over the world whenever we test a new pattern, and am continually inspired by the creativity on show within our connected sewing community. Here’s some inspiration for our new pattern – the Ruby wrap skirt.
A fabulous group of clever ladies helped to test out the Ruby wrap skirt in sizes 2 – 12. The testing process is so much fun for me because I finally get to see my design out there in the world.
I am inspired by everyone’s take on my pattern, and also fascinated by some of the beautiful locations that my testers live in. I asked my testers to make both the lace and colour block versions of the skirt, and as always I was so amazed at all the different interpretations that came through.
Anastasia made these gorgeous size 3 skirts. She used vintage lace, quilting cottons and chambray.
Gina made these size 4 skirts in very stylish chevron and plaid prints. I was amazed at the perfect matching of the plaid on the wrap !
Jennifer made these size 5 skirts and did a fabulous job using these sweet cotton prints and ruffled lace.
Kara made this colour block version in size 7. I really love the background in these shots! Kara lives in the Sonoran Desert in Arizona – it warmed me up just looking at these photos!
Kara’s very talented daughter chose the fabrics and laces for this lace version. I love the funky fabric flower!
Kristen made these darling size 2 skirts. Her daughter now has a wardrobe full for spring!
Laura made this size 6 lace version in a very cool leopard print. The styling in her photos is straight out of Vogue!
Laura also made this colour block version with a funky combination of cotton prints.
Robin made these very unique size 3 skirts, in dramatic purples and golds. The guipure laces and the metallic gold lame are to die for!
Sara made these lovely size 4 skirts. The Hello Kitty fabric is so cute used with the black and red contrast, and the blue lace version is something special with a pink waistband ribbon and 5 rows of white lace trim.
Shirley made these very cool size 10 versions for her daughter using cotton prints and chambray.
Elaine made these size 12 skirts for her grand daughter with cotton prints and laces from her stash. Love that doggy print!
Cynthia made this very sweet lace version out of an iridescent brocade and white lace.
So, there’s our ‘wrap up’ of the Ruby skirt, I hope you find some inspiration for your own.
Thank you to all my wonderful testers for their beautiful work and helpful suggestions.
