They’re also great for all kinds of occasions – whether chilling at home, strolling on the beach, or going out for a fancy dinner, a long wrap-style skirt can quickly adapt to your style and mood. Check out the long wrap skirts in this post.

A Line Skirt Patterns

This is a slightly A-line skirt; the taper can be easily adjusted. It has a back zipper, and I made it with 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 typically explode with vibrant color if you like that kind of thing! See the A line skirt post here.

In the post, I also offer many other suggestions for inspiration for other straight skirt styles of sewing patterns.

Wrap Skirt Pattern

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 our Pastor says, can I have an “Amen”? Find more wrap skirts here.

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

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 and most comfortable fit of all the styles. Learn more about the drawstring skirt pattern.
