Blank Slate Patterns Verbena Skirt

Tuesday, November 17, 2020


It has been said before and will be said again. One advantage to sewing is being able to fit someone that may be off the standard size chart. Such is the case for Avery. At 12 years old, she is 5'-3", which puts her outside of many girl's pattern, but she doesn't have the bust or hips for women's patterns. I am finding a few women's pattern I can adjust to work for her. The bonus is that I can justify a few pattern purchases as being for both of us!



This is the Verbena Dress by Blank Slate Patterns. One of the simplest sewing pattern hacks around is changing a dress into a skirt. By shortening the bottom ruffle tier and adding a waistband, you have an adorable skirt perfect for a tween. I love the Verbena method for attaching the bottom tier, because you end up with the cute ruffle edge without having to do a narrow hem or other finish.


I sewed up the skirt portion of the Verbena Dress and measured the waist opening. I cut two waistbands based on the measurement including seam allowances. One the waistband was sewn into a circle, I folded it wrong sides together and tucked the elastic band inside. Then, I attached the band to the skirt. 




Since the Verbena skirt tier has a 3/4 circle skirt, the twirl and swish factor is high. In double brushed poly fabric, it's like wearing a cloud.
