FABRIC

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).

SKIRT LINING
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.

DIFFICULTY

Suitable for Beginners. This skirt is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger). 

SIZE & FITTING

The Rookie Wrap skirt has a flexible fit due to the wrap nature. We suggest you choose the hip size closest to you on the size chart.

Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer to the last image for size chart and international size comparisons):

Unique and clever

I have not yet had the chance to make the skirt, but the buying experience was easy and fast. I especially like the wrap skirt/semi-pencil silhouette. The instructions contain the right number of images, and well-written instructions for beginner and more experienced sewists. (I might suggest emphasizing the audience for the first set of instructions; I think it's an easy oversight for newer sewists - maybe: Experienced sewist? Abbreviated instructions can be found on page X. Thank you and wishing you success.

Rookie Wrap Skirt - This rookie loved it!

I had the pattern printed at a local print shop. The instructions were very easy to follow and the end result was something that I will wear. I didn't choose the best fabric for the pattern but that's on me. I will make this again - I've already purchased a better fabric choice. Overall a positive experience with a wearable result - thank you!

Wrap skirt

Easy to sew. I’ve had so many comments and compliments on it, wanting to know where I bought it! Made it in a linen and lengthened it to be long. Love it.

Cute wrap skirt

I made this in a plaid suiting flannel. It turned out really cute. Directions were great as usual but I wish they would’ve noted the length to make the side ties because I made mine a little too short the first time and had to redo them. I will definitely make another.

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.

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!

A great starter

I haven't sewed for 20 plus years and was thrilled with this skirt. I chose fabric from the curtain making section of Spotlight(Had no backing) The instructions were really thorough and easy for a beginner to follow. Need to make another one know and of course a top to go with it!.

The Sewing Revival

Hi Sharon, I see this is the third printable sewing pattern you have purchased from us so I am unsure why you have not received the email with download link (our app records the email being sent immediately after your payment went through). If you have updated your computer security you may like to advise it that emails from The Sewing Revival are "safe". I have sent you a separate email with a link to your pattern files for downloading. We are always happy to follow up from our end if you ever have issues - simply email us through the website to receive a much quicker response rather than waiting to complete a review. Kind regards, Janine

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.

Rookie Skirt

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
