Beautiful Arabella


One of my favorite things about this adventure in sewing is getting to try new things I would normally NEVER wear…..and finding out I LOVE them!

I love Maxi dresses, and even maxi skirts, but I had never made one in woven.

Enter Rebecca Page and her FABULOUS Arabella Skirt!


This woven skirt sits at the natural waist, has three lengths, a flat front waist, optional front tie, AND elastic back. NO ZIP. Let me say that again. NO ZIP. So this gorgeoups woven maxi skirt has zero zipper and just slips right on! I know, right?!?!

There’s more too….seriously. Hold on to your underpants.

The pattern comes in women’s, girl’s, AND dolly patterns!!!

I didn’t have time to do the girl’s and doll versions, but have no doubt they will happen in this house seeing how amazingly perfect this pattern is for my kiddo as school approaches!

Back to the Women’s version, though, because I’m MADLY in love and it has taken nearly everything I have to wait to share until now.


My tall waistband maxi version is made from some seriously gorgeous Rayon Challis from the always amazing Darcey over at Sincerely Rylee.

So if you ever need to look effortlessly beautiful while also feeling totally comfortable, PLEASE (!!!!!) go pick up this pattern and make it ASAP!

Happy Sewing!

  1. Hello Kelly,

    Beside the beautiful clothes that you make, I was drawn by the power that comes off your photos. You are a beautiful strong woman.
    I showed the pictures to my daughter, she was laughing with joy, and said: mommy she is like me!

    Just wanted you to know you are inspiring a little girl. She has Alopecia since she was 2 yrs old and is now 4.

    Sending some love from the Netherlands ❤

    • Oh my!!!! Thank you so much for reaching out!!! I am so happy she has somebody she can look to! I lost my hair at 23 and was pretty lost, but ended up finding the real me who I didn’t even know had been lost all along! I have learned that not having hair has been a huge blessing in my life because I can’t hide behind anything. I just am who I am and I have embraced that. As your little girl grows, if she ever needs somebody to talk to, I am always here <3
