Modest Handmaidens is a family owned and operated, home-based Christian cottage industry and ministry, that strives to meet the ever increasing need for modest sewing patterns, as well as provide homemaking resources & related products for our “Keepers at Home” Titus 2 customers. They kindly sent me the Sashay Skirt pattern to review.
I was surprised and happy to receive it so quickly as it came in just a couple days after I contacted them! I really like this pattern because it's simple and quick, yet beautiful at the same time. The same I day the pattern came, the skirt was finished! A family friend gives me sewing lessons, and with her help it was finished "lickety-split":) It was very convenient to find my measurement. After measuring my waist, we were going to figure how many panels I'd need, but to our delight it was already on the pattern. This skirt is composed of several small panels; for my size I required 10 panels. (We decided to lengthen it about 5 1/2 in. by adding a separate waistband and 4 in. on the bottom.) Another aspect about this pattern was that I didn't have to sew a regular hem. Rather, I flipped the end up, ironed, and used a zigzag stitch on my machine. I absolutely love how this skirt feels-so comfortable, lightweight, and cool for hot summer days! This is definitely going to be a summer fav.! You'll have to read my next post to see where I got the fabric:) Here's some photos from when we made the skirt...

For your next summer sewing project, I highly recommend using this pattern!
