I’m a guest over at Grosgrain today for Free Pattern Month Day 14! Make sure to visit to see all the great patterns…..there’s a new free pattern every single day this month! Look at all these goodies so far (click to image to visit Grosgrain):
My contribution is the Ruffle Bustle Skirt (you might remember this design from WAY back….. SYTYC Contest November 2009. This is a fun, flirty knit skirt with a yoga style “fold over” waistband. The ruffled bustle is perfect for using up those small knit scraps you might have laying around.

this is gorgeous! Being new to blogging, I didn’t see this when it first came out, I love the thought of the bustle being in knits!

This is so awesome! Anyone else have problems printing the pattern part though? It is printing out black for me.
You might need to download a more recent version of Adobe Acrobat.
I love how you layered the scraps! What a great idea. I did something similar if you want to check it out.

I’m having a problem with the pattern, when I try to open it its just a blank page. I would love to make this for my daughter but I can’t down load it. =(
Teresa Peschke says
I finally got it, i think it was my computer trying to open it as a webpage instead of as a PDF =P

I love this skirt! I was so jealous of it…. little girls can just wear ANYTHING! so, after pondering it for a whole 24 hours, I just dove in and made one for myself. I wanted it to be below the knee and have a straight, professional look in the front, with something flirty and fun like the bustle! An older friend of mine had given me a few christopher and banks skirts that were too small for her. I do not particularly love the brand. Who am I kidding. I pretty much hate their clothes on me. But, free clothes? I can do something with them!!! I made this skirt out of one navy blue christopher and banks skirt, an old dressy top, and some scraps of red checked fabric that I adore!
Thank you so much for the inspiration! I love how my skirt turned out… I’m going to wear it tonight 🙂
