For those who love sewing with a little bit of history!
The Kilbirnie Skirt from Scroop Patterns is a pretty gathered skirt sewing pattern that’s based on an extant garment. The skirt includes an Edwardian version of a ‘paper bag’ waist, which is a very high waisted, and held in place with a boned internal waistband, cord gathering and a small standing frill.
Some fun detailing and thoughtful construction mean this skirt pattern will work well for historical costuming and modern wear. View A replicates the original skirt, with rounded patch pockets with cord gathered ruffles that mirror the waist ruffle. While view B is inspired by other skirts from this period (1915-1918). It features a decorative front buttons and triangular pockets with buttoned flaps. This skirt closes at centre front with a placket fastened with snap fasteners. You can decide to cut the skirt back on the fold or with a centre back seam, depending on the width of your fabric.
