First, I wanted to thank you for all your support and great response to the Flora Skirt PDF Pattern. It has been wonderful!
I have loved to see all the testers’ amazing creations, full of creativity. I am amazed by the designs and how they have made the skirt to be a great, all year long skirt pattern.
So, here are the pictures of the patterns and the links to thorough testers’ reviews on their sites:
Maggie has made this beautiful color blocking Flora skirt by using cotton stretch fabric. Check on her blog for full details on how to adjust the length of the skirt easily!
Pam, the blogger behind Josephine Sews has decided to test the skirt with her sewing student. They both fell in love with the whimsical and creative aspect of it!
So, much that after her testing skirt, Pam decided to make a second one, this time for herself <3
This is the perfect combination of the whimsical look of the skirt and fine lines of the design. Gorgeous green BTW!

Another Flora skirt with the front straps. You can use the options as you wish and create the skirt you love.
