Primary fabric Use medium-weight 2-way or 4-way drapey knit fabric with at least 50% width-wise stretch. For example, your fabric, when folded in half, should be able to stretch from 4" to at least 6" (10 cm to 15 cm). Matte jersey, jersey and ITY knit are good choices. Woven fabrics are not recommended.
Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

How to choose your size
An easy pattern, and so elegant, thank you for your generosity in designing it.
I am new to sewing, and this was a simple, straightforward pattern that I was easily able to grade to my size and get great results. Thank you for this free pattern – it’s a great confidence-builder and introduction to your selection of patterns. The instructions were clear and easy to follow.
This pattern is super cute. It took me a while to determine which part of the front pattern was the waist. I emailed Itch to stitch and she was great in responding. Problem solved.
I really like the pattern
Such a great pattern! I think I may have chosen the wrong size because initially it was too large in the hips. It was an easy fix however and I have revised the pattern piece for when I make it next time. I do intend to make this again!
Erin Gouthro –
I love pencil skirts. I can’t believe this classic skirt is free!
I really like all your patterns, and hope to viste your site soon.
I love all the patterns i have purchased! I recently bought the “Sew Beautiful” book, it’s awesome! Keep up the great work!
Perfect summer skirt
Very nice pattern 👌🏻🧵🪡
easy to make

I love this skirt! Made a size small and used a medium weight knit.
wonderful such a cute skirt
Just lovely, very comfortable
Awesome. I’m a beginner, I need more practice because I did not understand the instruction on how to attach the waist elastic. Over all, good.
I foolishly made this skirt with cotton. Boy this was very difficult to make. I had to keep taking it the sides of the skirt and for some reason my pattern didn’t really line up. I did get it make and it’s snug , more snug when i sit. but i love , love , love the design. I printed it out again in color, i do not understand how to print from adobe , i tried. but i will try again with stretch material. I am sure it will be darling. Thank you .
Facile a faire pour une debutante comme moi !
great pattern and very good to follow;
Easy sew with very pretty results. Thank you for making this a free pattern!
facile à faire
I love these patterns. I’ve used many patterns from independent designers but the patterns from Itch to Stitch are head and shoulders above the rest. Great designs, size layers available for printing, very clear and consise instructions and affordable.
Lively pattern and easy to download
Easy to sew, quick project. Would like to make it again but will make it shorter. Found inside waistband not so professional looking
My fave go to
A very nice skirt and a good instruction
Easy as 123
Love the pattern, but wanted it for my DIL, who is a beginner sewer, The pattern is for stretch, not sure if she is up to that yet, but I have a piece so she can practice first. She is also the size of a 10 year old. Some alterations will be neccessary.
This is a great pattern for a very wearable wardrobe staple. I made it out of black Ponte knit and I love it. It can be dressed up with a woven blouse or more casual with a knit tee, especially the Uvita. Itch to Stitch patterns are stylish, well-drafted, and have excellent instructions. Thank you for offering this free introduction to Itch to Stitch.
super et jolie jupe merci
easy to follow instructions
A little short for me but love the style.
Super simple and easy to sew – Nice twist on the pencil skirt.

It’s such a pretty piece.
A lovely easy pattern to sew and so stylish. Thank you !
Easy pattern and looks great on.
I adore that this pattern is uncomplicated without resulting in a run-of-the-mill skirt. I find the fit very flattering as well.
Great pattern, easy to make super cute!
Love this skirt!
Beautiful skirt. Easy to sew.
I was able to download, print and assemble pattern fairly easily. Thank you.
Very easy and fun!
Easy to follow instructions, and very easy to sew. This pattern would be useful to a beginner to have. Beautiful result. My Granddaughter loves it.
Great little pattern, easy to make, front detail kicks it up a notch.
Great pattern great fit
Another freebie that will be well used.
This was a fun and easy sew, with nice clear instructions. It was my first time using an Itch to Stitch pattern and the fact that it was free made it a great way to acquaint myself with quality of the drafting & instructions. I definitely have my eye on several patterns to purchase after making this. PS – it’s also fun and comfortable to wear. I’m really pleased with how it came out.
Love the pattern!!!
Quick and easy to sew but just doesn’t suit me. Not a fault of the pattern/instructions (which were great – clear and very easy to follow).
My second project and it came out great.
Love this skirt!
Very nice. I just have to get them copied as printer would not cooperate.

Really cute pattern and design. Instructions were a little confusing and the waistband was wierd,.
Such a cute versatile skirt
Lovely pattern, easy to print, instructions are detailed, skirt turned out great!!!
Very nice pattern. I had to make it longer but that’s normal for me.
So easy to follow the instructions. I do wear my skirts lower on my hips so I brought in the hip shape in slightly. I also made it with ponte material which is stiff and thick but I like to finish. Thank you
Your instructions are clear , easy to follow.
Leuk patroon, past perfect 👍
Great pattern and instructions
Fabulous pattern so easy to sew. Thankyou for making this pattern free
Would like a straight front hem as an alternative! Knees aren’t as young as they used to be!
Very nice model and and easy to ude pattern

Thank you for the pattern, it’s great. I love the skirt as it’s very simple to make for a beginner, it has easy instructions and is comfy wear too 💕
Easy, nice and I will definitely come back to sewing the skirt soon:))

Just a simple, sweet, cute skirt and so versatile.

Woman, you have talent. After I’ve built my confidence and gotten a little more time to myself, I want to come back to your site. I’ve just got too many patterns to not try a FBA on SOME of them. That’s the problem I have in a nutshell: confidence, time and too many patterns needing an FBA. But you go on with your bad self creating patterns and I hope I’ll be back. God willing.
Super easy pattern to follow, instructions are great and the Lindy Petal skirt went together so easily I couldn’t believe it!
Feminine and comfortable.
I just love all the instructions to this pattern. It is easy to sew. I will sew another one or two
Not quite my style, I’m sure others will like it
Cute and easy to put together.
Super cute, easy to follow, fits well
I have a straight body, no curves, so tried to adjust…end result of my
muslin was better than final skirt. Learned a ton during the process! Will be making more from this line of patterns.
Danielle Koch –
Very lovely pattern and great instructions! And free, to boot!! Thank you, thank you!!!

Brania Naomi –
Love the design and it’s easy to follow along in the instructions. Came together nicely but was to big even though I went for the smaller of the sizes I was between.
Wonderful experience – easy pattern!
It was very good pattern. Now I have perfect skirt 🙂 I’m ver happy.
A beautiful design.
I love that this is not just a boring style skirt
Easy yet stunning
quick and cute, instructions were easy to follow and the result looks great
Grazie è tutto semplice adesso per me il cartamodelli è preciso
I made this for my daughter-in-law and it took less than an hour. I loved the method of inserting the elastic. It was a bit short for her to wear to work (she’s a teacher) in the original version. She really likes the skirt so I will make it several more times, just a bit longer.
I made this for my daughter-in-law in less than an hour. I LOVED the way the elastic was applied. I have just recently started to test Indie patterns. I have sewn for nearly 60 years and I’m learning new techniques from you youngsters. Thank you.
Sewn up my first in a nice floral scuba, pattern was easy to follow and I love the finished item. Excellent pattern!
I love it
