This sweet skirt is the perfect first garment sewing project, with straight-forward seams and an easy fit.  The elastic waistband, only at the back, means that it’s simple to put on and take off, but the flat front makes for a clean and polished silhouette.  A classic A-line shape to the gathered skirt is flattering, and looks great with a top tucked in or left out–dressed up or more casual!

Not your first garment sewing project?  This pattern stitches up SUPER fast, and looks great in a huge range of fabrics.  Make a half dozen in a weekend and consider your wardrobe set for next season!

Sizing ranges from XXS to XXL, with only three pattern pieces and minimal yardage.  The pattern is provided via printable PDF, and can be printed at home (on standard 8.5″ x 11″ or A4 paper) or sent to a print shop for large-format printing.

Instructions are provided in the Learn As You Sew format: a tablet-friendly PDF that includes full-color step-by-step photo instruction PLUS links to video instruction for every portion of the pattern.  Know nothing about sewing garments?  Follow the videos like an online class, and allow the HD footage to guide you every step of the way, just like having a private tutor right there by your sewing machine.  Know a little about sewing clothing?  Follow the digital instructions and click only on the videos that you need for techniques that are unfamiliar, or where you might need a refresher.  Know a lot about sewing clothing?  Skip straight to the Quick Sew Guide and print off an abbreviated list of steps to get sewing sooner!
