Sew Liberated - Estuary Skirt
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 recommended woven fabrics for the Estuary skirt are mid-weight linens and linen blends, soft cottons, silk noil, rayon challis, cotton ikat, and mid- to light-weight chambray or denim. You’re looking for a fabric that drapes well when gathered extensively, can handle the elastic waistband, and presses well in the placket and buttonhole applications.
