Pattern Roundup: Skater Skirts
The skater skirt is a casual, flared skirt, with a circumference from a half to a full circle. Typically, it has a waistband that sits at one’s true waist. This versatile skirt can be dressed up or down, made long or short, and looks great on all body types.
This pattern is actually for a dress, with a fitted T-shirt-style bodice and skater skirt, joined at the waistline seam. Make it in stretch knits with some spandex for recovery, and wear it year-round, with leggings, tights, boots, Converse kicks, or sandals. It’s an excellent choice for newer sewists and those just getting into sewing with knits. There are eight sizes included in the pattern, ranging from high bust 30 inches to 44 inches, and waist 24 inches to 38 inches.
This easy-to-sew, full-circle skirt can be made in short, midi, and ankle lengths. Women’s sizes range from XS to XXL (waist 22 inches to 48 inches, hip 31-1/2 inches to 50 inches).
