Crisp pleats are a key trend this season, so why not make a swishy skirt for spring!
The Jessica skirt from By Hand London is deceptively quick and easy to sew, elegantly polished and incredibly comfortable. With a deep contoured waistband and three skirt options, you’ll be sure to sew a skirt for every season and occasion! Choose from full on chic with ladylike knife pleats, make a softer silhouette with girly gathers or get ready to twirl the night away in the panelled circle skirt. This digital sewing pattern is available in multi-size from 6-24 (UK) and 2-20 (US).
This pattern has been designed to work beautifully in a variety of light and medium weight woven fabrics. You can opt for linen, soft cottons (think batiste, double gauze, chambray, seersucker, lawn, broderie and swiss dot), drapey and floating such as silks and rayon. Stiffer fabrics such as taffeta or dupion work particularly well for the gathered variation!
