Sew an easy knit skirt, choose your length (short, knee, midi or maxi length) in under an hour out of comfortable stretch knit fabrics. They're so simple, fit so well on so many body shapes, and are so fun for spring and summer, you'll want to sew up a bunch!
Two great A-line skirt patterns that we'll explore give you a lot of options for length, waistband, and fabric options.
A-line skirt with or without inset pockets:
Travel Trio Three features an A-line skirt with our famous easy to sew, foolproof pocket. This skirt has either one pattern piece (a back piece) cut twice to sew up the fastest skirt you'll ever make (start to finish with a stretch fabric waistband in 15 minutes) or an A-line skirt with a 3-part front with deep inset pockets sturdy and roomy enough for your phone and keys.
A-line skirt with sideseam panels (for knits, wovens or leather or suede):
If you want more detail in your skirt, you can make a 3-panel A-line skirt that has no sideseams. This skirt offers options to be made in leather or suede (which comes in narrower hide-width segments) as well as stretch woven fabrics.
The A-line skirt and Wrap Top is a great combo - you can make the skirt knee length, midi or maxi length, and you can pair it with a sleeveless reversible wrap top or a long sleeved wrap top.
This pattern is one that you'll reach for again and again - a classic A-line skirt and wrap top are timeless looks that look great now and in your closet five or ten years from now. Depending on fabric, you could amp this up with a (faux) leather or suede knee length skirt, and a funky pop-art print wrap top or you could make it from two of the same fabrics for a dress look.
