Today we are showing you two versions of the Betty Skirt by the Shaffer Sisters. Our little M loves skirts and anything girly. The first one is made up in summer fabrics and is just fun for hanging out around town.
This is a simple cotton and the seashell pink is a perfect kind of fun for a beach visit. The nice part about the Betty Skirt is that there are lots of options. This has a simple yoke and a gathered skirt. It is a little big for M now, so by the time summer rolls around again it will be perfect.
The fall/winter version that I have made up I have really fallen in love with. This classic version has small evenly spaced pleats and remind me of the skirts I wore when in high school. We wore uniform skirts and blazers and this skirt is reminiscent of those skirts. So maybe nostalgia drove me to sew this up. I used a piece of plaid that I had left from the Secret Garden Dress made up earlier. Needless to say it is a big hit! M did not want to take it off for two days. We love this fabric, it washes easily and comes out of the washer and onto the hanger and looks perfect.
The easy to wear elastic waist makes this style perfect for our little bean pole. The construction has the seam between the yoke and the skirt completely enclosed. I like this since there is no chance of irritation on little tummies. The Betty Skirt has options for large or small pleats, a gathered skirt or a gathered skirt with a button placket. It is sized newborn to 16x. Lots of choices to make it your go to skirt for any occasion.
