Oh, goodness gracious. We were completely floored by your super-sweet responses to our route 66 skirts! It's been a really fun design for us, and the possibilities are absolutely endless. The floor-length skirt also makes amazing evening wear! These skirts look lovely in denim, cotton, moleskin, flannel – you name it. And we are just loving them all!
But you wanted some details, too, didn't you? Don't hesitate to drop us questions, please. Now, here goes…
~this skirt is oh-so-slimming, and super-easy to sew
~12 swing-y gores allow for all sorts of fun combinations… choose one fabric, two fabrics, three fabrics, four fabrics, six fabrics, twelve fabrics!
~invisible side zip closure with neat facing at the upper edge makes a smooth waistline
~2 length options — 29" (mid-calf), and 39" (falls right to the tips of your toes)
~ladies sizes 2-18 all in one pattern envelope (only $16)
~fully illustrated instructions & full-size pattern pieces
~marie-madeline studio will be carrying denim to make the skirts with, Lord willing (hooray for denim!)
~and of course, we'll be selling route 66 skirts ready-made, as well!
~drop us an email if you'd like to pre-order your own route 66 skirts pattern (we'll ship it for free!)
We hope to have the route 66 skirts sewing pattern on shelves by the first of the year. We shall see! It wouldn't be real friendly to leave you all hanging, now would it?
We hope you all are keeping nice and cozy. It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
xo, the Long ladies
P.S. It was loads of fun to shoot this skirt. The pictures were actually taken on Route 66, just north of Narcissa, Oklahoma. Not far from our little corner of the world!
