With couture fold over pockets like the Mallard Coat, this is a versatile skirt that also has a hip belt option or can be sewn plain. The skirt is designed long, but also works well at knee level.
The hip belt is delightfully flattering and can be secured at the front or side with D rings, buckles or fabric tie. The patch pockets are both practical and a little different.
With rear darts the skirt can be sewn with a deep waist facing or fully lined. We'd call this beginner level, but now conservatively labelled an easy intermediate with the rear zip. A perfect extension for a beginner looking to grow their skills. Experienced sewers will have this constructed in an hour.
- Hip belt, pockets or plain

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here.
3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.
You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.
