Introducing the second pattern from Sewaholic Patterns! Gathered skirts with fitted yokes have front slash pockets and centre back zipper closure. Your choice of a slightly gathered skirt, a fuller gathered skirt or a longer, knee-length skirt. View A is slightly gathered and above the knee. View B is fully gathered with optional trim along yoke seams and above the knee. View C is fully gathered and knee length. Optional trim or contrast topstitching highlights the fitted waistband. Or, keep it simple with the seamline details only. A great addition to your wardrobe!
This skirt is designed with a pear-shaped figure in mind. The fitted yoke waistband highlights a narrow waistline, gathers at the hip create a flattering silhouette. There are pockets, too! Slash pockets are easy to sew, and anything you put in the pockets is disguised by the gathering. Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller waist, larger hips.
Because of the fitted waistband, you can easily wear a top untucked, or tucked in! This skirt hits at the natural waist. The 9 inch centre back zipper is slightly longer than standard skirt patterns, so it’s more comfortable to get on and off! The zipper construction is unique, as you can sew the whole zipper and facing into the skirt without any hand-stitching!
A comfortable, pretty skirt for all seasons!
