Since the very first day of producing Sweet Spot® Skirts, we have saved every scrap of left over material. Our cutting process is designed to maximize every inch of fabric, but we still have some excess.  Every year we truck the scraps to Deaver, Wyoming where our Queen of Quilting, Jean,  turns them into quilts for charities.  You can read more about it here:  Quilts by Sweet Spot® Skirts.

Last year, Jean enlisted the help of her church squad, The Immanuel Quilters, to help use up some of the scraps.  They each made a quilt for a church fundraiser.  Not only are they saving our landfill and raising money for a good cause, they are having so much fun!  I had a chance to meet some of them at the 1st Annual Scrap Grab.  Scroll thru these pictures for the rest of the story!  

         

It was a frenzy of color and fun.  #whatcanimakenext

There was nothing left by the end of the day!

Can you see your skirt in these quilts?  PS.  Jean bought the bike one and gave it to me!  #benefits

      

Thank you to all the beautiful women who made a box of scraps look so beautiful.  I can hardly wait to visit you all in May 2017. 
Much Love and Many Hugs, 
Stephanie

SUPER SWEET Classic Skirt Sizing

E SWEET Classic Skirt Sizing 

 

This video will show you both the "Sport" size and the "Super" size!

Each Sweet Spot Skirt is adjustable and fits a range of sizes.  The unique snapping system gives you the freedom to adjust the size of your skirt.  Don't forget it is also 'reversible.'  One of the most important things to remember is the skirt is meant to be worn on the hips, not the waist! (Scroll to bottom of this page for visual!)  
The best fit is to fasten at least 3 rows of snaps.  We have put thousands of skirts on women, and it never fails to amaze people how flattering the wide waistband is on all types of body styles!  Feel free to call and discuss your fit questions with our "Specialist" at the shop!   
Flagship Store 360-904-9929.
Sport Size:  Fits sizes 2-14
This is our most popular size.  It is 12 inches in length (measured from the hips).  It’s long enough to cover, but short enough to stay out of the way during activities.   Don’t be afraid of it being too short.  We tell everyone to 'trust' the 12 inches and start with this skirt.   Measurements:  fits hip sizes 31"-40".
Super Sweet:  Fits sizes 10-18
This skirt is 14 inches in length and provides a bit more coverage than our “Sport” size. We have found that women who have very long legs or desire more coverage prefer this skirt.   **If you are a size 10 or 12, this skirt will fit you.  However, many of our customers who can fit in either size ("Sport" or "Super Sweet") and are quite active, find the extra length cumbersome and prefer the shorter “Sport” size. Measurements:  fits hip sizes 36"-43".
E Sweet:  Fits sizes 18-24
This skirt is 16 inches in length.  The skirt fits each body slightly differently, but provides ample coverage in a stylish and flattering way.  Each E sweet is custom made to order.  Measurements:  fits hip sizes 41"-54". 
Sweet Z:  Fits sizes 0-6
This skirt fits a true size 0 and more petite body frames.   It is 12 inches in length.  This is a great alternative if the "Sport" size is too loose and you have all the snaps fastened.  Measurements:  fits hip sizes 27"-33".
