Spring has caught me by surprise yet again and, more specifically, has shed some light on a few gaping holes in my daughters’ warm-weather wardrobes. But armed with our Gathered Skirt pattern and our gorgeous new Mineral Linen, I am prepared to fill in the gaps!
Our Gathered Skirt for All Ages is the perfect pattern for Purl Soho’s beautiful Mineral Linen. The subtle sheen of this unique fabric reflects light and shadow in the soft gathers of the skirt, and for the large side pockets, we’ve reversed the fabric, showcasing its natural, matte side.
To fill in your own seasonal wardrobe gaps, you can find a full list of materials here, and just follow along with the original Gathered Skirt for All Ages Pattern. Roll on, spring. We’re ready! -Corinne
