Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing it on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.
SKIRT OUTER FABRIC:
Any form of woven fabric will suit this skirt so have a bit of fun using heavier weight woven fabric for winter and lighter weights (not flimsy) for summer. We recommend cotton and cotton blends, cotton drill, velvet (non stretch), corduroy or even light weight upholstery fabrics. As long as the fabric is not stretch, you can use just about anything.
Our orange floral sample is made up in cotton weave (it is retro fabric we found at a second hand store) and the paisey fabric with border is a heavier nylon/cotton blend. The 2 blue skirts are a cotton and a cotton blend and are heavier weight (but not upholstery weight).
Use a lighter weight woven for the lining. We used 100% cotton upcycled retro sheets because they are cheap and fun and we are doing or bit for recycling.
*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton,linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.
Suitable for Beginners. This skirt is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger).

Super easy wrap skirt
Can't believe it was so quick and easy to make! And it looks great. Super simple to make it fit just perfectly. I would definitely recommend this for any sewer, beginner or not. Great instructions and helpful tips.
Rookie Wrap Skirt
I’m new to sewing off patterns but found the instructions really helpful. I was making the skirt as a reversible skirt, which it does say is an option, but didn’t find instructions for this option. I made my skirt at sewing lessons so it was straight forward with class guidance. The Rookie Skirt is super comfy and I’m planning on making another with some different fabrics.
Easy skirt to make
Loved how it turned out - very flattering figure wise

Super Easy Rookie Skirt
As a beginner, I love The Sewing Revival patterns. Easy to print and cut out, with clear instructions and photos. The advice on types of fabrics to use is also super helpful. Extra bonus as this skirt is reversible, so it’s two for one. Love seeing what others have made too. So inspiring!

Neat Chic Skirt
This skirt has a great outline. It looks stylish, slimming and fits. It was easy to make in fact the hardest part was trying to decide which buckle to use and how to attach that! This is my favourite skirt style for summer and I will be heading to the store for fabric to make more. It looks great with my Fantail tank, next I will make an Egret Top to go with it too. I'm a big fan of The Sewing Revival patterns.
I found this a very easy pattern to print, cut and construct. Given that it is essentially three panels I was able to adapt it very easily to suit my needs: Because I intend to mostly wear it in our Northern Australian summer I felt the full lining would make it too hot. I instead used self bias on all edges, and French seamed the side seams to a neat finish. I made a straight size 10 with no adjustments and it’s a perfect fit, even the length ((I’m 173cm tall). I like that it gives the opportunity to be creative with the lining/bias fabrics and colours, as well as the fastenings - I used snap fasteners and a retro buckle.
Love this pattern!
This is such a great pattern! My third sewing revival pattern. I've made one in a tartan and one in brown faux leather. They both look awesome, fit like a glove and were super quick to make.... Need a black one now
Great. Easy process, payment and convenient
This pattern is amazing with the way the lining is done. Plus it’s a perfect fit, so will be making many more of these skirts in the future
Just today I was complimented on the skirt I made with your pattern, so very happy. The pattern was easy enough to download and put together and the sizing was accurate. Instructions were clear and I would definitely recommend this pattern if you are a beginner as I am.
Love this pattern and have made 2 skirts and will be using the pattern again. Simple instructions and a great fit.
Easy to follow instructions. Could have less choices for the side attachment.The lining gives it a really nice finish.
