Woot Woot! Our beautiful weather is here. Here’s some inspiration for you; a summer roundup of sewing patterns for skirts!
There’s a little bit of everything, from short to long, plus zippers, drawstrings, wraps, and elastic. Try something new!
I also share many other sewing pattern ideas in these individual blog posts. Just click any of the photos below or the link under it to read each post. Enjoy!
I am loving this elastic waist layer skirt pattern! It was so easy and quick to sew. I used New Look sewing pattern 6953, but I have more ideas for you in the post.
There is something so fun floating around wearing a tiered skirt! Get more ideas HERE.
This little number is a great beginner sewing project.
It has a very comfortable wide elastic waistband with just enough gathering that looks great on most body types. Can you say forgiving? Read the post HERE.

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!
I also offer many other suggestions for skirt styles and sewing patterns in the post for inspiration. Read it HERE.

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. 😃

If you like the feel of pajamas, chances are you will love the feel of a knit skirt. I need more of them in my life!😁 Read the post HERE.
Knits require some knowledge to make sewing easier, and I link to help in the post. I’ve also included other skirt pattern ideas to get you started!

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. 😂

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.
