Fancy visiting us in real life? We have a bricks and mortar shop in the heart of the Ashford town centre in Kent! Stocked full of all our lovely patterns and a great range of beautiful fabrics, we also teach classes for our designs and host other workshops run by local crafters for patchwork and quilting too.
The Simple Gathered Skirt is exactly what it says on the tin - a simple to sew, full, gathered skirt that will become a staple of your wardrobe, all year round. Designed as a set of instructions that allow anyone from a beginner upwards to create a skirt that perfectly fits their own measurements, this pattern is a great, quick make. Featuring a full skirt, a fitted waistband and a zip closure you can make this skirt out of any material that has no stretch - try cotton for a nicely structured look, or go all out with taffeta or lace for more volume. Viscose or crepe would make a very floaty, drapey version; lawn, linen or silk are perfect for hotter months, and you could even make a version in light weight wool for the winter months.
The Simple Gathered Skirt instructions are suitable for all sizes as you will be drafting your own pattern based on the measurements you are using.
