Sporty luxe lounge skirt sewing pattern by Pattern Emporium

FIT: Although this is a knit style, it is not fitted. It has ease at both waistband & hip/seat. If you wish your skirt to be more fitted, size down. Just keep in mind that a skirt that is too tight through the hip/seat, will likely ride up as you walk.

WAISTBANDS: The waistband is pull-on style with elastic but it's anything but basic. The main tutorial guides you through sewing a fabulous tab front waistband complete with eyelets (or buttonholes), topstitching & drawstring. But if you prefer to keep it simple, choose the plain waistband that's quick & easy. It's your choice whether the skirt sits on your natural waist, lower waist or down low on your hips.

SILHOUETTE: The fall of this skirt is gently A-line. This flattering shape allows more of us to enjoy this style of skirt.

POCKETS: We have a trusty curved pocket with bound opening or expand your skills with a welt pocket. Both pocket bags are stitched to the front of the skirt to create a flush finish.

HEMLINE: The hemline is curved & slightly lower at the back. Choose from our 3 lengths or customize hem length easily to make it mini or midi length.

Sporty Lounge Skirt.

Super easy to put together and lovely to wear.

Diana K.

I have made 3 of these skirts and just love the pattern. Especially with the on the hip waistband, as this style seems to suit my unusual shape better.
Will certainly be making more in the future as I love the casual style skirts.

Brenda E.

I have made 2 sporty lounge skirts, one in scuba and one in french terry. Both went together very well and quick, I couldn't master the eyelets but doesn't matter. They are very comfortable to wear. Thank you Kate for another great pattern. Brenda

Amazing pattern

I love this skirt. I teamed it with the smitten jacket and made them both out of a stretch Denim. A beautiful set. The skirt is so comfortable and it looks great 😊

Super comfortable

This skirt is quick and easy to make featuring well written, detailed instructions.
A versatile piece to mix and match with PE tops, shown here with Time out Tank . A staple in my wardrobe and great for travelling.
