Each pattern has as few pattern pieces as possible making pattern matching a breeze and allowing you to show off these gorgeous fabrics to their best effect!

All patterns include a full colour instruction booklet and a full scale multi-sized pattern sheet.
Althea is a sewing pattern for an A-line skirt with an integrated elasticated waistband with pockets (because every skirt needs pockets)! It an easy sew with only two pattern pieces, making it perfect for beginners. For more experienced sewers, you'll be able to complete this project in an hour or so.
This skirt has no darts or zips. It has a gathered effect at the waistband. The pattern includes lengthening and shortening lines allowing you to adjust the finished hem to the length of your choice.
