This first blog that I ever started following was Sewing in No Man's Land. Her oldest daughter is just about the same age as Eleanor so finding her tutorials for the cutest outfits in the size I needed was perfect, plus her photography is just amazing. When I saw that she was looking for pattern testers for her Taking Notes Skirt, I jumped at the opportunity.
I tested both the girls' and women's. The pattern is lovely and so quick and easy. Eleanor's has a curved waistband, ties and is simply gathered. Mine has the straight waistband and box pleats.
The Taking Notes Skirt is available to everyone who signs up for her amazing new project, Sew What Club, which is a monthly subscription to amazing patterns at a great price.
Also, my blouse was made from Ottobre 5/2013 #8 Girly Touch with the sleeves from #12 Peplum Blouse. I really like it and the fit is lovely. The placket was a horror to figure out.
