There’s hardly anything more fun to wear than an over-the-top twirly tiered skirt. And this fun sewing pattern includes three adorable styles! Make the kicky knee length version (view A), a midi length version with a funky patched tier (view B – shown on front cover), or the floor-skimming maxi style (view C). Pull-on elastic waist styling make darison skirts as comfy as they are timeless. Add fun trims to the hem for a truly boutique style skirt!
sewing pattern materials list…
- matching thread
- 3/4” elastic waistband
Instead of giving fabric yardages for each view, we have done them piece by piece, as you will be using different fabrics for each tier (as we’ve done for our cover samples B and C). View A is made with one fabric (except for the baby ruffle trim, which is contrasting).
suggested fabrics: cotton and cotton blends, voile, rayon challis, soft lightweight flannel
