New Pattern: Quebec Skirt
Let’s be honest. I usually don’t think about sewing myself any skirts. Skirts are less glamorous than, let’s say, dresses, or even blouses. But skirts can be such a workhorse of your wardrobe and they can be super chic. Especially a denim-style skirt! It’s a not trendy item that you throw to the back of your closet or to the give-way pile at the end of the season. You will wear it again and again, and with a plethora of tops.
With the preface, let me introduce you to Itch to Stitch’s latest pattern, the Quebec Skirt! It is a denim-style skirt. AND! It is a pull-on skirt! Of course, I want comfort and style mixed in one!

Quebec Skirt Features:
- Five real pockets: one coin, two front, and two back pockets
- Back split for easy walking
- Discrete elastic waist
- Faux flat-felled seams throughout
- Designed for bottom-weight stretch woven fabric
The Quebec is designed for stretch woven with 20-30% stretch (that is the same amount of stretch you need for the Mountain View Pull-on Jeans, so why not get the same fabric if find a fabric you like). It is important that you follow the stretch requirement.
Because it’s a pull-on style woven skirt with an elastic waist, you need to choose the size based on your hip circumference and not blend to another size for the waist. This is because the waist of the skirt will need to be able to get pulled past your hips. The waist will be cinched by the elastic to fit your waist.
Let’s take a look at the beautiful Quebec Skirts that my lovely testers made!
My sincere thanks to my testers! It’s always a fun experience to work with you all!
Be sure to get your copy of the Quebec Skirt pattern while it’s on sale!
I wasn’t sure where to ask for help. I am making a simple pair of pj pants for my husband. What does it mean when it says Mirroring. Do you have to cut anything different?
The Left leg of the PJ pants is “mirroring” the right leg. The right leg is “mirroring” the left leg.
Wow, the testers are impressive!! Very inspiring, thank you.
Style and comfort! Love it! I enjoy seeing your patterns made in a variety of fabrics and seeing how one style can look so flattering on so many different body shapes and sizes. Looking through the testers pictures I can see how it would look on me. Definitely wish to try this one!
Absolutely love this! So glad you drafted this pattern. I love how your testers used various fabrics showing that this skirt can dress up or dress down. And every lady looks so lovely in their Quebec skits!
