Description

This is a skirt pattern that I have made quite a few times since 2004 (#104 5/2004). It is a 6 gore panel skirt and unfortunately, this photo doesn’t show the 3 front panels. But the centre front panel is wider than the 2 side panels and is cut on the cross/bias as is the centre back panel. It has a lovely flare to it and because the side panels are cut on the straight of grain, the side seam doesn’t pucker and it makes it easier to insert an invisible zip.

Material Notes

Cotton drill with elastin. Bought at The Fabric Store in Brisbane.

      Thanks, that is sweet of you. I don’t normally wear animal prints but black and white always gets to me.

    The fabric is lovely, and the style too!!! I can see how it hangs so beautifully….everything that has been cut on the bies can look wonderfull…but you have to know how to sew it, since it is tricky, and you have done a wonderfull job!!!! well done my friend!!!

      Thank-you again Adriana. I do love garments cut on the bias and wish I was young and slim and able to wear more things cut and sewn that way. But I am so grateful for my health and ability to be still sewing such lovely things after all these years.
