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 Tube Skirt Sizes 6-22 A0 (download)

The Drape Tube Skirt has to be one of the easiest skirts I have hanging in my wardrobe.  So easy to wear and wash and never iron then to top it off the fit and shape of the skirt is forever flattering.  This PDF has all sizes included (6-22) and some design alteration instructions included in the pattern.  You'll be able to moderate the amount of drape in the back of the skirt according to your own taste.  You can checkout some detail about this design on the blog:

Skirt features:

This drape skirt is best cut in a double knit PONTI with an elastane content (lycra, spandex) for good recovery.  The seam allowances are 1cm (⅜") on the centre front and back seams with 0.7cm (¼") on the waistline for the self bind and elastic.

It's home and industry ready and based on my size chart.  The pattern fitting is for body hugging garment with a negative ease of 5-10% depending on your fabric choice.  When you check the measurements on the size you have selected you're looking for your body measurements minus 4-10cm approx.

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.
