It is done!

I am finally ready – and very proud – to introduce you to

MariaDenmark 201 – Yasmin Yoke Skirt !

The Yasmin Yoke Skirt is a cute A-line shaped yoke skirt in two lengths, with curved front pockets. Perfect for everyday wear.
The skirt is designed to sit at the belly button and the yoke keeps any tummy fluff in.

The shorter length, which ends just above the knees (47 cm in size 38), is designed to look great to wear with flat shoes, such as ballet flats or boots – great for a day at the market, for shopping or for chasing the kids around.
The longer length that ends just below the knees (54 cm in size 38) looks great with heels. It’s a true stable for a day at the office or for going out for lunch!

The skirt closes at centre back with an invisible zipper.

This pattern is a downloadable pdf pattern (requires the free Adobe Reader) in English with detailed instructions including step-by-step pictures, making this pattern perfect even for a beginning seamstress.

I have decided to launch the Yasmin Yoke Skirt with a great introductory priceĀ  for the first week (until Sunday September 23rd 2012)!

I have tons of more pictures I’d like to show you (including a few goofy ones:-)), but I still need to add the pattern to the Craftsy and the Patternreview shops, I need to pack up this week-end’s orders and also pack my bags for the school trip I’m leaving for tomorrow… so I’ll just leave you with this sketch, and assure you – I will be back soon ;-)

P.S. Thank you to everyone who supported and sponsored my 5K run to raise money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. The run was today, and I am very happy to tell you that I was the one runner (out of about 3500!) who raised the most money!

I was also satisfied with my time – I ran the 5K in 30 min 56 sec. It’s okay, but in the spring I want to do it in less than 30 minutes!
