The Estuary Skirt is a beginner-friendly, body-friendly skirt pattern that you'll feel like wearing every day of the week. It comes in sizes 0-30 and features a comfortable elastic back. The button front placket, which can be sewn with buttonholes OR as a faux, buttonhole-free placket, makes this skirt a great project for all levels of sewists.
Wear it with plain or graphic knit tees, woven Strata Tops, or warm it up in the winter with a cropped sweater or sweatshirt, leggings and boots. Effortless outfits. And big ol' pockets - instructions for either patch pockets or in-seam pockets are provided. The skirt can also be lengthened or shortened to your heart's content.
The Estuary Skirt is designed for woven fabrics such as light-weight linens and linen blends, soft cottons, rayon challis, cotton irate and light-to-mid-weight chambray or denim.
For fabric requirements see the pattern envelope. If you wish to extend the skirt length beyond the midi option, you will need to purchase extra fabric. You will also need additional fabric if you choose a directional pattern or nap.
For the knit cuff option, you will need 1/2 yard (0.5 m) of knit fabric with Lycra or spandex content to insure good recovery.
For the waist and elasticized woven cuffs, we recommend Dritz 2” Soft Waistband Elastic.
