Free Sporty Skirt Pattern with Skirting the Issue

It is time for another round of Skirting the Issue - the month long extravaganza of using your gifts and creativity to give back.  Skirts are made across the country and given to those in the foster care system and other charitable organizations.  Huge shout out and thanks to Simple Simon and Skirt Fixation for organizing this awesome event.  For all the information about how to get involved, go HERE!
