I can’t believe this skirt is FREE! Can you?
Kristi is so amazing and generous to release such an awesome freebie, I mean… this is skirt is AH-MAZING!
It’s Fantastic how Flattering it is, it’s so Flowy and Feminine…. All the good F’s! 😀
It’s a woven gathered wrap skirt that closes with 2 buttons at the waistband. You can choose if you want it at your natural waist or lower on your hip. It wraps from one side of your waist to the other, so if you were wondering…. nope, it doesn’t open while walking nor sitting. No risk of flashing anyone (unless you want to, of course! 😛 ).
I choose for natural waist because I feel that’s more flattering to my body type, so I went by waist size and graded from there. Well, I didn’t actually grade it per se. Due to the nature of the skirt and how the gathering is forgiving, I went a bit rogue on this one. This is how I cut/graded my skirt:
- waist size 14
- front panels straight size 14
- back panel size 20
It fits to perfection and I’m more than thrilled with it!
I paired my skirt with another G+G freebie, the I Heart You top.
In order to make it off the shoulder, I cut two fronts of the dolman top and omitted the neckband, using the fold over method instead. It turned out really cute, if I may say so myself! 😉
To get the I Heart You top you need to join G+G’s Facebook Group, and go files. There you’ll find this top and plenty other nice free patterns!
The Festival Freebie Skirt is available at G+G’s website, there’s also a super cool bonnet inclueded. 😉
Hurry and grab this amazing summer staple and get your collection started! 😉
