Loving this new swishy skirt pattern, it’s perfect to wear with all your jersey tops and woven blouses!
The Ella Skirt from Forget-me-not Patterns is a gathered skirt pattern designed for woven fabrics. Medium weight fabrics are the easiest option to sew as they are stable to sew. But floaty rayons or silks will challenge you a bit more and drape beautifully! This pattern is suitable for directional prints.
It’s a step above basic, and has a subtle high-low hem finished with a gathered tier. With an A-line silhouette, it gives you a flattering drape and movement through the hip. Choose from three different lengths – above the knee, on the knee, and midi length. The pattern has three lovely pocket styles. Make with patch pockets to create a more casual style, or go for a hidden pocket on the side seam.
The Ella skirt waistband sits on your natural waist. It closes with an invisible zip at centre back, and a hook and bar closure. Beginners will find this a great pattern to advance their skills, with detailed instructions for each step. Ella is designed for light to medium weight non-stretch wovens with good drape.
