Zinnia skirt from Collette patterns

Zinnia skirt is the latest skirt design from Colette patterns. It’s quick and easy skirt, so you’ll be able to make in no time at all. It’s easy to sew, easy to fit, and works in such a wide range of fabrics and will become your next handmade wardrobe staple.

With only 4 main pattern pieces (plus details like pockets and belt loops), you’ll spend less time cutting and more time making, and because the cut is full, the Zinnia skirt only requires fitting in one place — the waist. So there are no tricky curves to get just right. Once you make it once, you will definitely want to make more.

The Zinnia skirt pattern has plenty of features that you can feel free to interchange. You can switch out the in-seam or patch pockets, or use the belt loops on any version.

Version 1 is a gathered skirt that falls below the knee, with a button-front placket and patch pockets.
Version 2 is pleated, hits above the knee for a shorter length, and includes belt loops and in-seam pockets.
Version 3 is also pleated, falls below the knee, and is fully lined so that it can be made in sheer fabrics.

Try version 1 in a chambray for summer, make a tartan skirt for autumn/winter with version 2, or get dressy using chiffon and version 3, which includes instructions for lining.

Fits sizes 0-18, and priced at £12.50 and available from Collette Patterns.
