My dear daughter is right at that age when wearing skirts is still extremely attracting, but going to junior school’s asks for denims and trousers and sweaters etc. However, she still asks for skirts when she’s home and I don’t feel like buying patterns so here’s a small list of pretty nice patterns (all of them FREE) that are tween-appropriate and tween-APPROVED!
Tiered and Ruffled Skirts (wovens)
A ruffled skirt with lovely bound edges
The maxi skirt, easy to customize
The pencil skirt attracts a lot because they look more “grown-up”.
I used this one for the flight-attendant outfit she needed for the role she had in a theater play. (knit)
This one is a Pleat Skirt, but it looks like a pencil skirt to me. I love the little bows at the bottom of the pleats. (knit)
The Denim Pencil Skirt by Simple Simon is just great! (woven)
Sailor and flat-front skirts (wovens)
Always trendy and cute, the sailor skirt
Ikatbag’s Plaid skirt
Sailor-inspired flat-front skirt
Those colors are just gorgeous!
