It has a very comfortable wide elastic waistband with just enough gathering that looks great on most body types.

Skirt A Line Pattern

This is a slightly A-line skirt; you can easily adjust the taper amount. It has a back zipper, and I made it with a cotton batik.

Batiks are the perfect weight to sew with, easy to handle, and great for beginners. They are also opaque, so you can skip the slip if you are a modest type, like me.

These prints are typically exploding with vibrant color if you like that kinda thing! See the A line skirt post here.

Wrap Skirt Pattern

You may notice I have a thing for wrap skirts!

They are flattering, easy to sew, and adjustable! So, eat the tacos! One more reason this makes for a great travel skirt too. 😃

DIY Wrap Skirt Patterns

I know, I know, another wrap skirt! Don’t knock ’em until you’ve tried them, though. 😁

This one is just special to put on. I love the tie and the way it cinches the waist.

We all can benefit from a cinched waist. As my Pastor says, can I have an “Amen”? Read the post HERE.

And may I add, wrap skirts are just so easy and flexible for dressing up or down!

Well, maybe all skirts are? Nevermind. 😂

Drawstring Skirts

Finally, this last skirt pattern was inspired by an awesome retail skirt from Evereve.

The style is easy to make and fairly quick. It makes the perfect summer staple.

Especially if you are not into wearing shorts.

Next time, I’ll be making it in a more subtle fabric, though. 😂 

I know that you will really, really love the fit of this skirt!

This is a favorite fit of all of the styles and the most comfortable. Read the post HERE.
