Aspiring Designer: Bishy Barnababes

Hi, I'm Vicki - creator, designer, photographer, seamstress, chief cook and bottle washer (actually hubby does this!) over at Bishy Barnababes. I'm so excited and thankful to Swhetty Bettie's for being able to take part in my second Aspiring Designers Challenge. I can't wait to share my latest pattern with you, the Prairie Petticoat and Skirts

Imagine the girls from Little House on the Prairie frollicking around barefoot in flowered cotton skirts with vintage lace trim:

Or maybe you prefer the elegance and beauty of layers of tulle that can be worn as a petticoat under an Easter dress or embellished to create a masterpiece you won't want to hide!

Or perhaps something that's shorter and full of fun:

The Prairie Petticoat and Skirts PDF pattern has them all. In sizes newborn through to age 16, plus American doll and Build-a-bear, and four styles included, there's bound to be one that's just right for someone in your life. All styles have an elasticated waistband for comfort and can be pulled on easily over the hips. It is easy to create a custom fit and with the addition of various trims the possibilities are endless! I've been amazed at my wonderful testers' creations.

A super quick sew and suitable for beginners with clear step by step instructions and diagrams. It has both rectangle measurements and pattern pieces so you can choose which you prefer. It also comes with printshop files. 

To celebrate Valentine's Day, it also comes with a free Heart Pocket add-on.
