The Fantail Skirt from Scroop Patterns
The historical Fantail skirt pattern is now available in sizes 30-56 (Hips 34"-60")
The Fantail Skirt now fits up to a waist 50"/127cm and hips 60"/152cm! The instructions have had a refresh to make them easier and more comprehensive. The skirt is a classic 5-gore, A-line skirt accurate to 1890 - 1910 but looks fabulous for modern day too! The skirts feature a waistband that sits at the natural waist, a fan of six pleats falling from the waistband at centre-back, and a centre-back placket that fastens with hooks and domes/snaps or inward-facing buttons.
The skirt is designed to be the perfect foundation for a whole range of late Victorian and Edwardian looks, from the skirt portion of a formal 2-part gown in lush silk, to the bottom half of a tailored suit in crisp wools. Make this skirt in light-midweight fabric with moderate draping qualities, such as: plain and twill weave cottons, linens and wools and silks.
