Skirts are the perfect clothing item for spring and summer. This stretch skirt features simple lines and is easy to sew and comfortable to wear. Previously I published a free pattern for a girl’s skirt, but the women’s version differs in fit from the children’s skirt. The children’s skirt is gathered and has lots of volume, but the women’s version fits snugly around the hips to show off your curves rather than hide them!
Normally when I sew, I choose my fabric and than match the notions to it, but this time I started with this gorgeous 2″ wide teal elastic I had in my stash. I went to the local fabric store and found a perfect medium weight knit that included the same teal colour. The floral print is perfect for summer. While I used a knit fabric, you can also use a woven fabric that has lots of stretch.
I paired the skirt with a self drafted top and a quilted leather clutch (free pattern available here!). While I’m a lot more comfortable taking pictures rather than being in them, I love the way this skirt makes me look and feel and I’m excited to share with you this free pattern.
With only 2 pieces to cut and a very simple design, you can sew your own skirt in under an hour. For the free pattern, and tutorial, click here!
