Description

Sidonie is another addition to our collection of basic patterns. This simple A-line mini skirt is a quick project ideal for making your perfect little basic skirt that has been missing in your closet. Better yet, you can use it as a base for your own designs and develop it further. Of course we will share a couple of inspiring variations to this skirt in the upcoming weeks.

    By jacket, do you mean the vest she is wearing? That is actually from Urban Outfitters.

      You can give the skirt a lower waistline by making a muslin or a paper skirt and drawing on a new waistline with tailors chalk or pencil (respectively). Then take off the paper skirt or muslin and neaten it up. Then add seam allowances.

      You can make a waistline facing by tracing the tops of the pattern pieces about 5 inches down.

      Then you can just make the skirt as your would normally. Oh, and remember to use a shorter zip or to shorten the one you have.

      Good luck! : )

    I dont like how it sits so high on the waist. A low-waist option would be nice.
