Pocket Skirt FREE Sewing Pattern and Tutorial
The Peppermint Pocket skirt is a simple Midi skirt with an elasticated waist that pulls on over the hips to sit high on your natural waist so there is no need for buttons or a zip, nor too many fitting issues. This makes it a quick and easy sew, and quick and easy to get on and off your body.
What you'll need:
- Recommended Fabrics: This pattern was designed especially for woven, medium to heavy weight fabrics like linen, double gauze, cotton twill or silk noil. It would also make up well in some lighter fabrics that have a draped quality like viscose twill, crepe de chine or silk satin.
- Notions: The waist requires 38mm (1.5inch) wide elastic. Please refer to the Fabric Consumption Chart to see how much you need for your size.
- Thread: One regular size spool (100m) is enough to complete the skirt (if you are planning to finish your seams with an Overlocker/Serger remember it takes an additional 4 spools of thread)
- Tools: The garment can be completed from start to finish with just a regular domestic sewing machine. Finishing the seam allowance with an Overlocker is not essential but it is recommended if you have one.
