Skill level:

This pattern is labelled as intermediate, due to the skills needed to insert an invisible zip and lining, however I have included detailed instructions on how to insert an invisible zip and how to attach the lining so if you are a beginner with some experience and want something a little more challenging, just take it slow and don't rush it, and always make a sample before the final garment!

A basic knowledge of how to use a sewing pattern, and basic sewing machine knowledge is needed for this pattern.

...........................................................................................

Please note, some files will download as .zip files. You will need to unzip the files before using. On an apple computer you can double click the zipped file, and this will open a new folder that contains the patterns.
On a windows computer you will need to right click on the .zip folder, and click "extract all".

This is a PDF file, and therefore will need to be opened in a programme that accepts pdf format. Adobe reader works well and can be downloaded online completely free for windows/mac! "Preview" also works well on Apple Mac computers.

You only need to print the files that are relevant to you.
For example, if you are a UK customer and print on an A4 sized printer, you will want to download both A4 files, but can ignore the US Letter sized files.
If you are a UK customer and want to print your pattern file at a printshop in large format, download the A0 printshop file, to print at a printshop, and then download the A4 pattern and instruction file for your instructions.

Perfect basic skirt

This pattern is so lovely, the measurements worked perfectly once cut and made - I always struggle with this somehow. I added a couple of inches to the length because I’m taller and really like how it’s turned out! I can’t wait to wear this skirt and make plenty more!

Amazing skirt and great instructions

I love this skirt. I made mine out of Harris Tweed so the lining included was perfect. It comes together beautifully and for this pattern there is a helpful YouTube video to follow along with.
