The skirt that’s so simple it is brilliant. I sometimes find skirts too fussy for my taste, so I created the most pared-down version of this garment–nothing less and nothing more than exactly what was needed. It has enough length to show some leg but also provides modest coverage, a generous hem to add luxe weight and body to the fabric, and just enough gathering to add fullness and movement at the hip but not become bulky at the waist.

Deep, sleek inseam pockets provide plenty of room for storing odds and ends along with a place to keep your hands occupied (we all know how useful pockets are for those of us that need somewhere to put our hands!). This pattern includes our production method for inserting pockets–it can be a bit of a mind-bender, but once you've done it you'll have the cleanest, professional finished pocket and you will feel so proud!

Beginner difficulty. Suitable for sewers of all levels, especially if sewn without the inseam pockets. Patient beginners and intermediate sewists will be well-suited for the pocket construction.

This pattern requires sewing inseam pockets and inserting elastic waistband. This pattern has two pattern pieces in total, and can be completed in about four hours, including cutting time.

Light- to medium-weight fabrics with no stretch will work exceptionally well. Linen, cotton voile, silk crepe, seersucker, tencel, rayon-pretty much anything with some drape will work for this pattern. Lighter weight fabrics will add more drape, and heavier fabrics will result in a more structured garment. You can even try this in a wool or wool blend for a wintry option.

You'll need:

- Fabric of choice — see detailed fabric requirements here.

- 2” (5 cm) wide waistband elastic

- Needle

- All-purpose polyester thread

- Sewing machine (capable of a straight stitch)

- Scissors

This pattern is offered in our entire size range of XXS-5X.

What Makes Our Patterns Different

PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES

My patterns feature the same sewing methods and construction techniques that are used to produce my garments at scale, making your sewing projects simpler, more efficient, and more fun.

TRIED & TESTED STYLES

My patterns have been in production and sold as finished garments for nearly a decade. I know these silhouettes work, I've made them in a myriad of different fabrics, I've incorporated years of customer fit and wear feedback over time, and thousands of folks have purchased and worn these styles, so you know they'll stand the test of time.

INCLUSIVE SIZING

All my patterns are available in the same size range as our finished products, which includes sizes XXS-4XL, and I'm always working towards including more folks in our size offerings.

BEAUTIFUL INSTRUCTIONS

I relish in finding beauty and joy in small doses everywhere I can, and our detailed, thorough instructions for each pattern are no exception. They are designed to be inspiring and fun to look at as you sew through our styles, and hopefully return to them again and again.

LIFETIME ACCESS

Pattern files are constantly improving based on customer feedback and my own experience, and every pattern purchase gains you automatic access to the the most current, updated version. The digital file delivery system is designed to make this process seamless and super easy.

    Challenging pockets and waistband

    I'm an intermediate sewer and for my level this pattern was a little challenging. I messed up the pockets and had to assemble them in away that was more intuitive for me. I had the most trouble with folding over the waistband, stitching, and getting a nice result. Eventually, I gave up and made an attached waistband that gave me more control to arrange the gathers in a flattering manor. It was a great learning project and like my final result very much.

    Great skirt!

    I love this new pattern from Elizabeth Suzann - especially the pockets. These are great pockets - large, and so far things don't fall out easily. I also like the 3" hem - it adds substance. The waist is nice too, although it is quite a bit of work to change it out if you want to take in or let out the elastic; I think on my next skirt I'll make a casing. The overall length is a bit long - I'm 5'5" and took off about 3". I made this out of a medium-heavy weight linen and love it. I think I've worn it almost every day since it was finished.

    Wonderful skirt pattern! Very easy to sew. I made it in a lovely viscose fabric.
