    how do I sign up for the free 100 plus pattern

  2. Heather, you have been busy. Thank you for putting alot, and I mean alot of great skirt patterns together in one place. I always trade my jeans in for skirts during late spring, thru summer and into the early fall. Love you blog…..

    • Things have been busy Lori!
      Skirts and dresses are my favorite during the summer months.

      Keep those eyes peeled- exciting things are on the way!


  3. Thank you so much !!!!!

  4. Hi Heather,
    firstly, I’d like to thank you for your kindness and generosity to share. However, I’ve tried to click on the skirt I’d like to try but it wouldn’t allow me to open it. I’m not sure what else I should do.

  5. Jenelle Montilone (@TrashN2Tees) says

    Heather Thanks so much for including my no sew upcycled tshirt skirt here! Quite the list you curated and I’m so happy to be a part of it. Now the decision is which skirt do I make next?

    • I know right! There are so many amazing options on this list! Either one you select, I’m sure it will be fantastic.

  6. I downloaded the 3 tier skirt – no 58 – and it came out as a zip file which neither my computer nor my android phone can open. Finding a website with free patterns was fantastic – and one other pattern opened fine, but the 3 tiered one – nope! Please can you help?

    • Hello Chris,
      Thank you for the note. Un zipping a file should be easy on a desktop but perhaps there is a glitch with the file. Since, I do not own the file on that pattern and only reported on it’s availability, you will need to contact the site owner/designer directly.
      Fingers crossed they can be of some assistance.
