Sewing Patterns - PDF downloads

The patterns displayed here are from my 'Pattern Puzzles' and 'Off-The-Rails' in my commercial studio. I persist in using industry seam allowances and make a point of including this information in each pattern pdf. If you go to my blog and members area you'll find posts for each of these designs covering history, development and pattern alterations. Enjoy :)

Drape Gather Skirt Sizes 6-22 A0 (download)

The Drape Gather Skirt is a favourite design from my Drape Skirt Patterns workshop and has been proven through the sales and production process in the fashion industry.  Here it has been graded in sizes 6-22 to match the size chart you'll find on this website.

This is one of my favourite drape skirt patterns and I've made it for both summer and winter, with and without lining.  For your first sample, I suggest you try to make an unlined version in a summer, medium weight fabric.  When you have perfected the pattern and fit you'll be able to be more adventurous and try the lined version.

Available here as a PDF download to be printed as 2 x A0 sheets at your local print shop. To keep the price down I recommend that you ask your print shop for a Black and White Plan Print.  And for my U.S. followers this A0 format will fit easily on a 36" plotter print.

More sewing patterns are being developed, as you read this description, so make sure you are subscribed to receive my newsletter to be the first to hear.

Skirt features:

I've cut this skirt for a snug fitting to make the most of the gathered drape around the hips.  I've allowed 2cm garment ease on the hip and strongly recommend you use a stretch lining to ensure you can make the most out of the bias cut in wearing.  It has only two main pattern pieces for the shell of the skirt: a centre front panel cut on the straight grain and a side/back panel that's cut on the bias and includes a fishtail flare on the centre back seam.  It has a strap waistband and centre back zip fastening.  A zip guard pattern has been included for the best possible finish in your tailored skirt.

It's home and industry ready and based on my size chart.  The pattern fitting is for body hugging garment with a minimum of garment ease depending on your fabric choice.  When you check the measurements on the size you have selected you're looking for your hip measurement plus 2cm garment ease.

You'll find both fabric usage instructions and garment measurements for all sizes on the actual pattern printout.  Keep an eye out for blog posts in the members area for cutting and sewing instructions.

Where do I start:

The first order of business is to select your closest size and begin the process of fitting this skirt to your own measurements.  The range of sizes on offer relates to my size chart.  Cut your closest size in a similar fabric for first fittings and make any necessary adjustments for personal fit. Once you have achieved a good personal fit you will be ready to cut in your final fabric.  I always recommend making a sample or toile garment in calico before cutting your precious and final fabric.

Enjoy. :)
