Gathered Summer Skirt FREE Pattern and Tutorial

Summer is here at last.  For some of us, it lasts longer than others, but whether it’s a trip to the beach, a picnic, shopping with the girls, or a day sailing, you’ll still need to look cute and summery.

The design for this skirt was copied from a Ready To Wear skirt I already owned and loved.  I think it has the perfect ratio of gathers to length and with the elastic waist, is comfy and casual.

I think you’ll love it too.  Pick your fabric and design carefully and it will become your go-to skirt for summer.


  • Fabric, less than 1.5 yards for sizes up to 52 inch hip

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 inch wide waist elastic

Made it early in summer and loved it so much that I’m now making another. The light fabric is so cool and comfortable. I also made a little ‘slip’ out of thin cotton so that its not see-through when i go out with it. Thanks for the great and easy pattern.

Hi I love the ruffled skirt pattern! It looks so nice with the flare and it also looks cool which is what I love. Thankyou for this pattern, I just hope I have the time to make it. So much sewing to do!
