Made in Windward Side, Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba
This modern, minimalist pencil skirt gently hugs your hips, yet allows for free movement thanks to the rounded side slit. ROMA will be the skirt you pair with a white button-down blouse and black heels when you want to feel put together and powerful. But it'll also be the skirt you pair with a simple tank or T, sandals and a tote as you stroll through the markets of Rome.
Customers and pattern testers have said: "I want to wear this skirt every day. The pattern is so versatile, the project is satisfying, and the result is just simply beautiful. I'm hooked!” "Way cooler than a jean skirt. This is a cute stylish wardrobe staple." "This skirt is really, really cute! It is the perfect summer Saturday walk around NYC skirt...."
This is a PDF pattern. Views A and B can be sewn on a standard sewing machine. View C is for a serger (overlocker) and standard sewing machine. The pattern is drafted for wovens, but it easily adjusted to suit knits! Tips are included in the pattern instructions.
GENERAL INFO: This is a computer drafted, print and cut PDF pattern, printable in black/white or color. The pattern includes all sizes, but the size views can be easily toggled on or off in order to print only the size you want to make. Step-by-step, illustrated instructions are included for standard sewing machine and serger (overlocker) and provide extensive detail.
SIZING: hips 86 to 122 cm // 33 to 48 in (please see sizing measurements in photo #3 above) In order to get a fit similar to the photo, choose a pattern size that is 2 to 3 cm (3/4" to 1-1/4") wider than your own full hip (the widest point of your hips, around your bum) measurement.
SUITABLE FABRICS: Light- or medium weight denim(like) wovens are best for midi-skirt ROMA. These offer a good, sturdy structure no matter the weight, but also with a bit of give so that you can move easily. If you choose to work with a fabric with stretch (knits), then a tighter stretch, such as stretch denim or a heavier weight interlock, is best. These fabrics will hold their form better than lighter weight, super stretchy fabrics. Depending on the stretch, you will need to go down a (partial) size. (please see photo #3 above for fabric requirements)
DIFFICULTY: Beginner + ....but still fun (and quick!) for intermediate or advanced sewists.
NOTIONS: * 2"/5cm wide elastic band the length of your natural waist + 1.25"/3cm * view B: bias tape (please see photo #3 above) * thread
