The Swirl Skirt is a simple pull on straight skirt with an elastic waist and wonderful wide bias hem flounce that drapes longer on the sides. It is an easy skirt to sew that you canât help but twirl in once you have it on! Sized for petite to 5â5â and 5â5â and taller, these pattern adjustments maintain the proper length proportions between the waist and flounce and then between flounce to hem. My fabric of choice for this skirt is rayon/LYCRAÂ® jersey knit or matte jersey, but it is also appropriate for softly woven fabrics with drape.
The Ruffle Top is a very feminine and easy to wear pullover top with a bias ruffle and bell sleeves. It can also be made sleeveless and without the ruffle. This top is shapely but not tight and is the perfect compliment to the Swirl Skirt. Again, my fabric choice is the rayon/LYCRAÂ® jersey but it can also be made in other two-way stretch fabrics. These 2 patterns compliment each other perfectly!
