Pattern Review - Butterfly Kisses Emma Skirt

Time for a little FLUFF in this week!

This is the outfit "Sister C" chose from the coordinating fabrics used for Sister A's outfit that I posted about last week. Another personality and style matching score here!
She chose the ultra girly and ruffly Emma Skirt also by Jina Barney of Butterfly Kisses Patterns.

While not as quick and simple to put together as the Olivia Skirt, all the ruffle twirl of this skirt is worth the extra time!!! And if I'd just get acquainted with my machine's ruffling foot, that might help too! Machine instructions, who has time to read them with so much sewing to be done!? ;)

This skirt offers such feminine flair! It's perfectly easy to wear and looks darling  paired with boots...what my daughter chose when she wore it out this week....it would also look sweet with some delicate flats or even sandals in the summer. I can certainly see her wearing this skirt year round! She says it's so comfortable and you can tell it makes her feel pretty to wear. :) The fabric combinations are endless, so this is sure to be a fun pattern to sew again and again!

She of course helped to design her matching top. 
 And since she is convinced that she is meant to grow up and move to Paris one day ;) , we decided to stitch the words "Amour Paris" for "Love Paris". With the Eiffel Tower kind of serving as the "I" and the large heart applique helping to complete the phrase "I Love Paris!" in a way that tied in her favorite parts of the fabric designs. The scooter of course being the perfectly pink transportation option for such a chic city, we thought we'd even make it's exhaust glamorous with tiny pink buttons and stitching...

Yes, another over the top cute collaboration with one of my sweet girls!
Always fun!!!

This is a gorgeous skirt, both in design and fabric choice. I must investigate a ruffle foot. Sounds like it would cut down time.
