Charlotte Skirt Sewalong: Sew & Tell!

And so our first official Charlotte skirt sewalong draws to a close. We've absolutely loved it and can't wait to start planning and fabric hunting for the Elisalex dress sewalong... details coming soon! Even more exciting though, is spotting all of your Charlotte's out in the wild! Here are some of your delicious and delightful creations that have been cropping up...


We absolutely love the casual nautical vibe of Kirsty's yellow linen Charlotte. She's gone for a super sexy midi length here, made possible by the adding of a back split.


Definitely the cosiest looking Charlotte we've seen, we adore Helen's herringbone weave wool and that cheeky flash of red lining!

Lauren is the epitome of damsel chic in her classic red Charlotte. Note: matching your skirt to your lipstick is always a good idea.

Holy guackers and happy Valentines! Kristi looks good enough to eat in her --is that taffeta??-- ruffle-hem Charlotte. Divine.


We knew it was only a matter of time before we spotted a denim Charlotte... it just works so well! And is that a cowl-neck Renfrew, Kriston? Match made in pattern heaven!


Reana-Louise does sexed up secretary a bit too well!! How hot is she?? Copying this look immediately.


Totally smitten are we with Laura's Rococo print Charlotte - perfect for hot n hazy Australian summers...


Shar's tweed ruffle-hem Charlotte is a lesson in elegance. Flawless silhouette, perfect ruffle and matched so beautifully with a silk Sorbetto.

Well, we don't know about you, but this is definitely food for future Charlotte thought... Keep 'em coming ladies!

    Thanks for this. It’s such a great pattern and I’ve had some lovely compliments whilst wearing it! My next version will be bright and/or print for summer!

    Damn! These are all so hot! I had to abandon my skirt temporarily to meet a deadline, but I really can’t wait to finish it!

    Thank you ladies so much! I don’t think I would’ve had the confidence to take on such a cute, sophisticated-looking skirt without the sewalong, but it was surprisingly easy and fun to make! I’m looking forward to making tons more!

    PLUS! its so comfy! I haven’t taken it off! Sexy, comfortable, goes with EVERYTHING! I can’t wait to try another one with a peplum! (But I was worried the denim would be a little too “country mouse”)

    SO MUCH FUN! thanks!

    I loved working with this pattern! I had never sewn a lining or an invisible zipper but your sewalong tutorials made it easy. I already have fabric for my next one!
