One of my favorite companies online is the marie Madeline Studio. Not just because of the wonderful products they carry, but because the Long ladies behind the company are so sweet! They carry a sweet Christian spirit about them that is evident even over the internet! I was blessed at Christmas time to win the quilt they were giving away, and every day enjoy looking at the beautiful fabrics in the quilt I have hanging up on my wall.

Besides the beautiful fabric that Marie Madeline carries,
they also sell patterns that are just perfectly suited to go along with all the pretty fabric! I was really excited to be able to review the gracie skirt pattern for my little girl. When I told the Long Ladies that it was going to be Carrianna’s birthday skirt they were generous enough to offer to send along fabric of my choice to make her skirt!

The first thing I noticed about the pattern is that even though the skirt looks like there a lot of pieces to the pattern, in reality there are only three total. The tips that are included are some that I have never read anywhere else! I didn’t have all the items they suggested using for the tips, but the next skirt I make I hope to try all the ideas.

I didn’t find the skirt hard to make. It took reading through the instructions a couple of times, and then I understood it all. The only thing I thought could be changed would be adding a cutting layout diagram for beginner sewers. But since you are just cutting out strips it is not hard to figure out.

Now comes the fun part! Marie Madeline has offered to give away a pattern of the winners choice! To enter, go to the Marie Madeline site and browse through the pattern selection. Would you pick a women’s pattern, a girl’s pattern, Apron pattern, or a bag pattern? It is so hard to decide!
