First Timer Skirt Pattern Release

We are really pleased to release a free pattern, the First Timer Skirt, for all our sewing community, but particularly those beginners who are taking their first steps towards the joy of sewing. Its simple design means it is cut from one piece of fabric and features a comfy elastic waistband that is simple to construct. Sizes 1-5 are available.

Once you have mastered the basic skirt, let your imagination run wild to create your personalised individual look:

  • Dress it up with trims & lace on the hem or bottom third of the skirt
  • Add a paper bag waistline
  • Add a ruffle to the hem of your skirt
  • Create either vertical or horizontal panels on your skirt to use up scrap fabric
  • Adapt for the season with varied weighted fabrics
  • Make a matching head wrap or band out of your left-over fabric

Or stick with simplicity. The best thing about an uncomplicated skirt is letting the fabric steal the show!
