STYLE OUTLINE:

This Skirt Pattern is my most pinned style on Pinterest. This pattern is full of lots of different design options. Its flattering, feminine, fun, flirty, funky, fresh & fabulous.

The Skater Skirt sits smoothy at the waist with soft fullness at the hem. It is one of the most versatile styles you can make & it is this adaptability that makes this style so appealing & easy to wear. Dress it up, dress it down. Wear it long or short.

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS: The following table outlines fabric requirements based on 110cm (44") fabric.

Please note: (1) The estimates below do not include directional fabrics. I recommend you cut out the pattern & lay the pieces down on a flat surface to help estimate fabric needs for directional fabric. (2) If you are sewing with rayon, remember to allow for shrinkage & buy a little extra.  (3) Also it’s wise to pre-wash your fabrics, in particular rayon.
