Joel Dewberry Meadow Spirit Skirt: Pattern Review

I fell in love with the Joel Dewberry fabric and sewing patterns when I saw them at Quilt Market. This weekend, I finally got a chance to sit down and sew myself a skirt using the Meadow Spirit Skirt pattern.

I was very nervous, because my experience sewing with clothing patterns is very limited. The Meadow Spirit Skirt has an interfaced yolk, pleats, and a zipper. Sounds scary, huh? Actually, I was able to finish the skirt successfully in a surprisingly short amount of time. The instructions were thorough, accurate, and easy to follow. And guess what? The skirt actually fits! :)

Crochet Flower: The pattern has instructions for the crochet flower as well. I don't know how to crochet, so I didn't do that part. If you don't crochet but still want the flower on the sash, you can get crochet flowers at The Dizzy Daizy and Flannel Queen.
Where to purchase Joel Dewberry patterns: The Dizzy Daizy and Flannel Queen
Fabric Used: In my skirt, I used Michael Miller Charcoal Dandy Damask and Riley Blake Essential Dots.
Jewelry: The necklace I am wearing is handmade by Ellabelle.


  1. Thanks for the review! I've been looking for a review on this pattern! Love your version!

  2. yeah you! I think your skirt looks better than the one pictured on the pattern.

  3. Beautiful!
    I found a fabric, found this pattern, searched for examples; I am inspired by your version.
