This one is a skirt pattern I made for work as a teaching resource for a patternmaking & garment construction course we were developing. The cardboard plotter/cutter ran out of ink halfway through the job, so I took the rejects home (perks!). The pattern was a standard size 10, so I didn’t have to adjust it much to fit Frances.
Being a teaching resource for beginners, its a pretty simple design. Plain A-line skirt with a straight waistband and centre back zip opening. The only point of interest is an inverted pleat at the centre front, stitched down about 8 cm. I did add the pockets though; a girl needs pockets.
The fabric is a grey wool remnant I bought on an impulse about a month ago without much more thought to how I’d use it other than “Winter is coming! I’ll need wool for something, surely…”.
I did think though that I’d use it for me, but a pattern ready to go, a rainy cold public holiday and a smiling sister always trumps half formed thoughts of my winter wardrobe. Always.
