Today is the official first day of Skirt Week 2012! As we mentioned in the intro post, this year’s skirt week is actually a whole month chock full of skirty awesomeness.
Tomorrow begins 2 full weeks of skirt tutorials brought to you by bloggers that you know and love. Here’s the line up of familiar faces (with no less than 4 Jessicas!):
Sabra from Sew a Straight Line
Janica from JaniJo (our readers’ choice full skirt winner 2011!)
Michael Ann from Michael Ann Made (our readers’ choice straight skirt winner 2011!)
Stacey from Boy oh Boy oh Boy!
Kim and the talented team at Spoonflower
Natasha from Little Pink Monster
Disney from Ruffles and Stuff
Jessica from Happy Together
Meg from Elsie Marley
Jess from Craftiness is not Optional
Jessica from Running with Scissors
Elisabeth from My Growing Home
Corinnea & Jessica from Created Blissfully
oh, and us too :)
After that, we’ll take a week to let you follow those tutorials and sew your skirts! In the meantime you can enjoy a little eye candy on the blog as we march all of our Skirt week sponsors by with their enviable offerings. It’ll be a little incentive for you to get those skirts sewn when you see the prizes they have in store!
The last week is voting time! Each category will be up for 1 day so you can vote for your favorite. An A-list panel of judges will also be providing a judge’s winner.
So that’s the schedule. If you need a reminder on guidelines and rules for entering, read this post. Enter your skirts into their appropriate categories by clicking the links on the top of our sidebar.
Speaking of entering skirts, 99 of you have already done so! We love seeing the pools fill up with your gorgeous creations. Every time a new one pops up, I want to comment on it’s loveliness, but I restrain myself because I want to remain fair and unbiased as a skirt week host. Though, Susan and I do have the distinct honor of NOT judging this year…
So go sew already! We’ll meet you back here tomorrow with a new take on an old favorite.

This is just the motivation I need to unpack quickly when we move house. Find my sewing machine and get sewing as quick as can be!
Please could I have some help?! I’m a new blogger/sewer and I’ve decided to put my skirt in skirt week! I’ve read all the rules and I’m really hoping I’ve done it correctly. I uploaded my photo into the full skirt category and then I put my own comment underneath with fabric etc. Is that right? I’m not sure what else to do!
yep, you did it perfectly. Thanks for participating!
