Skirts are one of my favorite things to wear. I used to live in them as a teenager and even though I have turned into more of a jeans/top person lately, whenever I go back to a skirt, I feel much more like myself. Sewing skirts is also something I enjoy a lot! They are so easy to fit, as you generally only need to worry about the waistband and hips, making them the perfect project to whip up in a few hours. I’ve tried many skirt sewing patterns over the years but there are still tons of them I want to make. Today, I thought I’d shared with you my 10+1 favorite skirt sewing patterns to hopefully inspire you and give you some ideas on what to make next.
So let’s get started!
This skirt pattern was released a few months ago and the minute I saw it, I fell in love! Maxi length, a big ruffle at the front, can be made in a huge variety of fabrics and styled in many different ways. What more can I ask for? I’m looking forward to trying it out as soon as I can!
A pretty little mini skirt with an A-line shape. I’ve tried this pattern earlier in the year and it was a joy to make and wear. Uses very little fabric -depending on the length you go for- and the construction is so straightforward that makes it ideal for beginners.
I couldn’t make up a list of my favorite skirt patterns without including my very own Adriana skirt. This unique design has pleats only to one side and includes both a simple waistband and an on-trend paperbag waistband. It can be made in a variety of fabrics and be perfect to wear all-year-round!
4. Wattle skirt- Megan Nielsen (affiliate link)
A pattern that I will be trying very soon. The Wattle is a set of classic skirts with unique crossover closure at the side seam. Pattern sits on the natural waist and features hidden closure at the left pocket, three skirt options, slash pockets, two waistband options and multiple lengths.
A very simple maxi skirt, designed for knit fabrics. It has an elasticated waistband and it’s comfortable and practical to wear every day. Such a quick project and a very versatile garment for everyone’s wardrobe.
6. Azara Skirt – Deer and Doe (affiliate link)
A beautiful, high-waisted midi-length skirt with angled design lines. It comes with 2 versions: one that is buttoned in the front and one with an invisible zipper in the back.
This skirt has a classic pencil shape but includes statement pockets that add a unique design element to the garment. There is also an optional tie belt and comes in two lengths: one that finishes below the knee and has a slit and one above the knee with a straight hem.
8. Dominique Skirt – Tilly and the Buttons (affiliate link)
I made this pattern last summer and was really surprised with how quickly it came together. It includes two versions: a straight cut skirt and one that is cut on the bias for a flowing silhouette. There are also optional turnover pockets, belt loops and an elegant sash.
A free sewing pattern that I’ve also tried before. Veronika is a classic, full circle skirt pattern for woven or knit fabrics. It features optional roomy scalloped pockets and two waistband choices.
Designed for true beginners, this skirt is the perfect project to start your dressmaking journey. There are vertical seams along the front, back, and sides of the skirt. This creates a better fit and more flattering silhouette than a rectangle-shaped elastic skirt. The casing is cut as an extension of the skirt, so it’s easy to sew.
Another quick and easy project that is actually a staple in my wardrobe. Mabel uses heavy knit fabrics, you get all the benefits of sewing with stable wovens, along with the speed and comfort of sewing with knits. It is the perfect scrap buster to create comfortable, knit skirts!
