The second pattern from Sew Altered Style — the Melinda Midi Skirt — is live and available for purchase in our shop!!! Melinda is a simple take on a classic look. A full midi skirt with a gathered elastic waist, Melinda comes in our usual expanded size range, and offers lots of options and lots of notes and tips in our detailed instructions.
Our very own Katie turns 40 today so as a celebration of her 40th birthday, the Melinda is free – you saw that right, FREE – for the first 40 hours after its release. Pick it up before midnight on September 11, 2019, and don’t pay a dime for this pattern. After that, it will go back to regular price, so don’t miss it!
Stay tuned for some fun Melinda challenges over the coming weeks!
All views come in sizes 0-30 to accommodate waist sizes from 25″ up to 49″. The Melinda Midi has a generous, loose fit throughout and will likely accommodate waist sizes several inches above the size chart.
View A is fully lined with a triple-tunneled waistband made by sewing multiple tunnels with the main and lining pieces. This triple line of elastic is comfortable and makes for easy fitting.
View B is unlined and features a separate waistband piece with 1.5” elastic. Both views have large front pockets to carry all your things (it’s plenty big for a phone!) and an elegant midi length.
If you ever need fitting support while fitting your Melinda (or any other pattern for that matter), be sure to check out our Facebook group, the Sew Altered Style Society.
Remember to get the Melinda today for FREE, no code needed! The sale expires tomorrow, September 11, 2019, so don’t wait too long! And use the tag #melindamidi so we can admire your makes!
