Swirl Skirt & Ruffle Top
Christine Jonson Patterns
Swirl Skirt: The Swirl Skirt is a simple pull on straight skirt with an elastic waist and wonderful wide bias hem flounce that drapes longer on the sides. It is an easy skirt to sew that you can’t help but twirl in once you have it on! Sized for petite to 5'5" and 5'5”"and taller, these pattern adjustments maintain the proper length proportions between the waist and flounce and then between flounce to hem.
Suggested fabrics: Christine's fabric of choice for this skirt is rayon/Lycra jersey knit or matte jersey, but it is also appropriate for softly woven fabrics with drape.
Ruffle Top: The Ruffle Top is a very feminine and easy to wear pullover top with a bias ruffle and bell sleeves. It can also be made sleeveless and without the ruffle. This top is shapely but not tight and is the perfect compliment to the Swirl Skirt.
Suggested fabrics: Rrayon / Lycra jersey but it can also be made in other two-way stretch fabrics.
These two patterns compliment each other perfectly. Suggested design options: contrasting ruffle or sleeveless.
