Morticia Skirt Pattern

Thursday, June 27, 2019

It's been a long time in the making, the Morticia Skirt pattern.  Finally it's available as a PDF download in 9 sizes (Sizes 6-22) in the one document download.  It's been designed for woven fabric with a minimum of 2cm (¾") garment ease.  When you print the A0 pattern, you'll find all sorts of information on the sheet to help you select the right size and lay-up and cut your skirt pattern.  There is also a set of sewing instructions.  Very soon I'll be adding a post to the Members Blog with those sewing instructions, along with photos and more detail.

So I have a few of these eight panel skirts in my wardrobe, mostly summer skirts, but now I fancy cutting this pattern in a stretch fabric (ponti) and seeing if I can make it without a zip.  Of course I'll have to use a small size pattern to account for the negative ease I need to make the stretch fabric work.  I'll keep everyone posted on Facebook and Instagram about progress on a stretch version of the Morticia Skirt.  If you fancy making your own stretch Morticia Skirt you can also join my Facebook Group (STUDIO FARO MAKERS) to share photos and ask questions.

Sewing the Morticia Skirt

I've tested this pattern in Size 20 with the help of my favourite workroom dummy.  If you'd like to work out which size you'd use then skip over to my Size Chart and check it out.  I've already mentioned that the fit on the hip is close with a minimum of garment ease.  However the waist does have a little more ease.  You can check the skirt measurements before you cut, using a table included on the pattern sheet, that gives you all the pattern measurements.  The smart thing is to make sure you do a fitting, after you've sewn all seams but one, and just before you sew the zip into the skirt.  That way you'll be able to take the waist in a little, on all of the nine seams, to suit your own measurements.

Morticia Skirt Size 20

Like all my sewing patterns, I've used industry seam allowances on this skirt pattern.  The vertical seams are 1cm (⅜"), the waistline and facing seam is 7mm (¼") and the hem is 1.5cm (⅝").  If you prefer commercial pattern seam allowances, you can add a little extra when you trace your personal size.

SEWING PATTERNS

All My Sewing Patterns
These are the first of my sewing patterns as PDF downloads for you to buy and sew.  The more I sell the more time I have to make new ones.  So if you fancy supporting the work I do here on the well-suited blog, this is your opportunity.  These patterns are based on my size chart listed here on the website.


ALL MY GARMENT BLOCKS

All my garment blocks.
Garment blocks are the basic template we use to make fashion patterns.  They are not patterns in themselves as they have no design detail.  My garment blocks also don't have any seam allowances as they are never sewn together once the fit is perfected.  If you look at any of my Pattern Puzzle posts you'll see that I usually start with a block then modify to achieve my new design idea.  These garment blocks are also based on my size chart as required for the mass production of fashion clothing.
