A New Gig and A-Line Skirt Tutorial

July 2, 2015


You may have noticed I have been a bit scarce lately, but I had a good reason. I have added a new gig to my writer resume. I am now a contributing writer for

I’ve been in the trial process for about a month, learning the ins and outs of their system, working with great editors and contributing tutorials with printable patterns.

Printable patterns are a new aspect to my designing. Most publishers I have written for are not set up to create printable PDF patterns for their readers. This has made designing quite a challenge, but I adapted and it became my norm. My norm has now changed. LTK has a wonderful image specialist who has made my sketches and chicken scratches look so tidy and professional. I am thrilled that many of the designs I have created can now finally be published because the missing piece (a pattern) can now be printed by the reader.

I have wanted to announce this new opportunity since I began the trial, but I really wanted to make sure I didn’t blow the trial so I decided to wait. I finished my last trial article this last week and shortly thereafter received the fabulous news that I had passed.

So…without further ado, here is one of my LTK trial articles.

A-Line Skirt Pattern

This skirt has an elastic waistband and can be stitched up very quickly. It will be a great addition to your summer wardrobe.

  1. CONGRATS Cyndee So happy for you to have this new avenue to explore. Love the fabric and idea of a-line pattern for skirts. Been thinking about making myself some simple skirts for summer. Don’t go anywhere in shorts anymore, my old legs have shown their better days too many times besides my gorgeous knee replacement scars, gained some weight over winter, ugh. Too many orders of Burger Kings french fries and ice cream cones. Yes I eat ice cream in winter, any time I can get it. Love their darned crunchy salty french fries. sigh
    Will you be charging for patterns? Just thought I’d ask.
    Well it’s time to go get our ice cream. They tend to spoil us at our local Bk, we’re well known and they give us extras like choc sauce on our ice cream or bigger cones. No wonder have gotten fatter, lol, but do I say no thanks, nope.
    Have great July 4th.
