Tally Skirt AND GYCT Design's 1 Year Anniversary! {Pattern Test, Review and Grand Opening Sale!}

I've been super busy with sewing projects lately! But my favorites have been the Tally Skirt that I tested for GYCT Designs (affiliate)! Guess What, GYCT Designs is celebrating their 1 Year anniversary for selling patterns! Hard to believe! Opening up a shop on their website (with a fantastic sale) is a pretty cool way to celebrate!

But first, I must share with you the absolute cuteness of the Tally skirt! I tested the skirt (it also has a short option!) in the 6 month size because Baby Girl is so skinny!

Here was the first one I sewed up!

Check out that reverse applique matching Tinley Tee shirt I made! I am super stoked at how awesome it turned out! I love it! Want to do some reverse applique on your own Tinley Tee (or pattern of choice) this was the tutorial I used as reference for my own, check them out here.

The pattern features options for skirts and shorts. Side knife (accordian) pleats and the button tab. The waistband has an overlap in the front with simple, easy to follow direction and buttons for aesthetics. 

I did not sew up the shorts, but I did sew up the skirt twice. The cool thing with the skirt is that you can adjust the length as you see necessary. The second skirt had 6 mos waist with 18 month length. My skinny little baby girl looks cute no matter what though (in my biased opinion)! :)

Here is the second skirt:
