My Go-To Skirt Pattern

There are free instructions for drafting this pattern on Patterns That Fit You. I've made a few of these skirts now, and love how easy they are to make. Plus, I can easily adjust for any changes in my measurements. (Fortunately that's been a bit smaller in the past couple of years rather than larger!!!) By using my own measurements, I can easily place the waistband where I want it to be, and not at my actual waistline. Also, I like the narrow waist band that I made, rather than the wider one in the instructions.

This is as good as it gets for a photo, unless I can teach Jacie to use a camera. I foresee difficulties with that, seeing how she thinks that a camera strap is a leash!

Oh...and the hemline really is straight, but looks funny in this picture. I could have fiddled some more to get the picture to better show the skirt, but I have some sewing that I want to do! Plus (sigh) some cleaning really needs to get done. I just don't understand why the maid never shows up. I should fire her.

make it wear it

Love it! I draft my own skirt patterns too. Once I learned how, there was no turning back. Thanks for sharing. Happy Sewing! :o)

Pretty. Yes. You need to teach Jacie to take pictures and earn her keep:-)
