THE SKIRT

Deceptively quick and easy to sew, the Jessica skirt is both elegantly polished and incredibly comfortable. With a deep contoured waistband and three skirt options, you’ll be sure to sew a Jessica for every season and occasion! Choose from full on chic with ladylike knife pleats; create a softer silhouette with girly gathers or get ready to twirl the night away in the panelled circle skirt.

Multi-sized sewing pattern from UK 6 / US 2 up to UK 24 / US 20

This pattern can be printed on 1x A0 copyshop files (pleated & gathered skirt), 2x A0 copyshop file (panelled circle skirt), or 32x A4 sheets (panelled circle skirt) and 21x A4 sheets (pleated & gathered skirt).

Jessica has been designed to work beautifully in a variety of light and medium weight woven fabrics. Opt for linen, soft cottons (think batiste, double gauze, chambray, seersucker, lawn, broderie, swiss dot etc), drapey and/or floaty silks and rayonStiffer fabrics such as taffeta or dupion work particularly well for the gathered variation!

For our featured samples, we used a green printed satin from New Craft House, rose tencel twill from Fabric Godmother, blush & red check viscose from Sew Me Sunshine and gingham silk dupion from Loving the Fabric (now closed down sadly).
