You guys!!!! I have been so excited to tell you that I was selected to test out a new pattern release by Amy Nicole Studio! The pattern is called the Patti Pocket Skirt. The pattern is live now and you can purchase it by going to Amy Nicole Studio’s website, or just link on the hyperlink. I have never tested a pattern before and I was really excited to see how the process was from start to finish.
This pattern had pleats in both the front and the back of the skirt. It is a high waisted skirt pattern, has a side invisible zipper, and the best part…..it has POCKETS!!!!
The skirt itself was very quick and easy to sew. It was actually pretty fun as well. I wish I could’ve played around with some color blocking combinations while I was testing, but this was the fabric that I had. There are so many possibilities with this skirt, it was very fun to see what other testers came up with.
I used an eyelet lightweight denim fabric that I found at Joann’s recently. I actually have a lot leftover after making this skirt so I’ll have to make something else out of this fabric soon.
This skirt is available in two lengths. I choose to do the shorter length (View A) and I did add three inches to the body, just cause I was stepping out of my comfort zone by doing the shorter version to begin with. The longer version is View B, the midi length. I am so happy that Amy selected me to test the pattern out. It was really interesting to see how the testing process happened.
Verdict: Yes! I want to make this again for sure. It was such a fun skirt to sew. Amy’s instructions were great as well. She even tells you what pieces to bring to the sewing machine in the instruction book! How awesome is that!?!?!
Next time: I really want to do a striped version of this skirt, and a color blocked version, and a longer version, ok, ok….I just really like this skirt!
