- 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.
Please note that the size chart is not the finished garment measurements.
We recommend that you also measure your body length and compare to the finished garment length measurements given. To achieve a perfect, individual fit, you may need to adjust the patterns length (instructions included).
Suitable for Beginners. This skirt is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger).
