True Bias - Mave Skirt
The Mave pattern by True Bias is an elastic waist skirt with a drawstring, inseam pockets and an optional lining. The skirt can be made with or without ruffles and in different lengths to create numerous options including mini, midi and maxi lengths depending on your preference.
One of our favourite things about the Mave skirt is that True Bias used options instead of views. This means that there are tonnes of different versions of this skirt you can sew up by cutting at different lines on the pattern pieces or lengthening, shortening or simply omitting the ruffles. The instructions clearly show you where and what to cut for each option. It gives a lot of versatility to an otherwise simple pattern.
The Mave is True Bias' most beginner friendly pattern to date. Even the most newbie sewist should be able to handle it but if you'd like a little help along the way, check out the True Bias Mave sewalong!
