Issue 8 of One Thimble Magazine has released! Featured are the Butterfly Swing Top and Swing Set Skort from Birdsong Patterns. These patterns are only available in the magazine or through the One Thimble Store.
I had the pleasure of testing these two patterns. They make the perfect school outfit. The Swing Set Skort has an eight gored skirt that gives plenty of twirl factor while hiding the shorts underneath. Leave off the shorts and you have a cute twirl skirt!
The Butterfly Blouse is very roomy with a single pleat in the front, a wide neck and flutter sleeves. It is a very easy pattern to sew and great for anyone beginning to sew with knits. This duo the perfect combination of girlyness and practicality.
