Another pattern launch day! Although this is the 13th pattern I’m launching in less then 2 years time, this moment stays so special! Today I’m launching the kid’s version of the Nina skirt & culottes pattern. I had so much fun developing this pattern because all kids (and mothers) seemed to love the result. No adjustments needed to be made at all, so that was double fun for me. :)
The pattern includes sizes 1y – 10y and also a 18 months. I always provide a pattern WITH and a pattern WITHOUT seam allowance. Both in the digital and paper version. The instructions are really detailed. My personal goal was to give every seamstress the perfect pattern to start with. Your very first skirt! Later on you can add more advanced techniques like the fly front zipper or one of the welt pocket options. The welt pockets tutorials can be found on our ‘tutorials’ page. As you know my paper patterns don’t include a paper booklet, but this is of course the reason why I don’t print my instructions. The instructions include 42 pages, so I advise you not to print them but to use your tablet, laptop or smart phone to follow the instructions. If you like to print them, just print the pages you’ll need. Let’s try to save the environment! :)
So let’s first talk about the options again: you can either start from an A-line skirt of culottes. To close your Nina, you can choose between an invisible zipper or a fly front zipper. And of course no Compagnie M. pattern without pocket option: diagonal pockets, faux flap pockets, double welt pockets, faux double welt pockets and a double welt pocket with button & button loop. The icing on the cake! The waistband can have a small or large overlap and when you’re a big fan of piping like me, you can add some between the pockets flaps, the side seam, waistband,… Add lining according to the season.
With the code NINA10 you can buy this pattern with a 10% discount in my shop. When you buy both Nina patterns (girls & women), you’ll get a 20% discount with the code NINADUO. Both codes will be valid till the end of the month.
