Material

Primary Fabric Use medium-weight or bottom-weight knit fabric with about 50% horizontal and vertical stretch. Keep in mind that drapey fabric results in a longer skirt, so plan accordingly. Interlock, matte jersey, jersey and ITY knit are good choices.

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

    Love when a pattern has many views to make!

    Lots of options. Wish that a pocket piece had been added to the pattern sheets. The low profile elastic waist is what makes this pattern stand out from other elastic waist knit skirts. Plus all the style option all in one pattern!

    I made the A line skirt. The instructions were clear. I am very pleased with the pattern.

    This pattern is so versatile and the options unique to other knit skirt patterns. I have made the single flounce, double flounce, and straight skirts. I love all of them! It is also a great pattern to hack. Enjoy!

    As you can see my the number of ITS patterns I have, I love, love your patterns! Only bit of constructive feedback I have concerns the page with the outline of the patterns pieces that show you how they are put together. Would you be able to darken the ink so it is more visible? I find it very hard to visually follow the parts of the pattern pieces because the ink is so light. I’ve tried altering the ink on my printer but it isn’t any darker. The rest of the PDF is fine to see. Thank you.

How to choose your size

  1. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  4. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
