Rondeau is a reversible wrap-style skirt with a pencil silhouette, featuring a flat front and elastic back. Includes three design options: the solid skirt, contrasting bottom band, and unique angled 6-block colorblock gives multiple ways to scrap-bust your fabric stash! Create a rainbow or ombre look... use a border print on the contrasting band... and reverse the skirt for a whole new look.

Designed for woven fabrics with a size range of 2-12Y, this is a quick satisfying project that results in a reversible skirt for twice the wear.

Rondeau is one of the oldest provincial parks in Ontario, and is found near to the most southern point of Canada.  The protected land of this park includes the biggest area of Carolinian forest in the country, making it a vital ecosystem for nesting and migratory birds.  


Many species are endangered or threatened and are found nowhere else in Canada.  Growing up, many days were spent at this park… camping, learning to sail and windsurf, biking the trails, and watching deer and raccoons.
