Pauline's Skirt

Classically cute! I've made a couple of these now. My daughter wears them while playing, so do sew down the pleats or they'll just balloon out.

Great pattern!

Well written pattern with easy to follow instructions. I ended up with a beautifully finished garment for my daughter. It is a relatively quick sew with minimal pieces (which is nice).

This pattern is perfect. Incredibly adorable on babies and perfect for school uniforms. A lot of versatility in this pattern for our household. From dressy to casual and different lengths to choose from. I personally love the vintage length and use it to make prop outfits for photoshoots of my clients!! Its perfect and very comfortable for the kiddos. Highly recommend this pattern and add to the stash for sure.
