Over 100 Free Skirt Sewing Patterns
Flouncy bouncy skirt
I’ve had this skirt design in mind for a while now and with the warm weather coming, now seems the perfect time to show a little leg and put some wiggle in my walk. With this skirt you’ll certainly be swinging your hips and swishing your hemline at every opportunity.
It’s fitted to your body in the waist and hips because most of us feel like we don’t need to extra volume there. Then the skirt flares out to give you a great full hemline.
30 minute skirt
A free pattern to download plus instructions on how you can make your own custom fit pattern too. A quick and easy sew can give you a wardrobe of skirt options depending on length and on fabric choices. Wear it short and sassy in a bold print for the summer, classic and elegant longer length in black for the office.
The perfect maxi skirt?
How to draft an ideal full length maxi skirt based off your own measurements. Slim and fitted enough to be flattering, but wide enough at the bottom so you can take proper strides and climb steps. This low volume maxi skirt looks great on all figure types.
Color block skirt
Here’s a simple free skirt pattern for a skirt with shaped seams front and back, flattering side panels and a nice comfy fit. Make this skirt all in the one color for a classic knit straight skirt or use the seams to create a color block effect. Be more traditional with the solid or dark panels on the outside, or go crazy with print!
Simple Pleated Skirt
This could easily be your go-to skirt for summer. Make it once, and then over and over in different fabrics. This style works great with a pretty border print too. I think you’ll like it! Quick and quite easy to sew, cool and casual fit, pleats front and back, no darts, optional side seam pockets (who doesn’t love pockets!). Comes with a video to help you every step of the way.
Gathered summer skirt
Summer is here at last. For some of us it lasts longer than others, but whether it’s a trip to the beach, a picnic, shopping with the girls or a day sailing, you’ll still need to look cute and summery. The design for this skirt was copied from a Ready To Wear skirt I already owned and loved. I think it has the perfect ratio of gathers to length and with the elastic waist, is comfy and casual. I think you’ll love it too. Pick your fabric and design carefully and it will become your go-to skirt for summer.
Half-circle wrap skirt
This is a cute skirt that's easy to sew. It's another of my 'custom-fit' patterns, which means I'll show you how to create your own pattern for this skirt which will fit you exactly as you want it. The half-circle shape gives it nice flounce and movement while the wide wrap over prevents any unintentional flashing! You'll reach for this skirt again and again. Make it a flirty mini or a warm and cozy calf length - it's your custom pattern!
The Wear Everywhere Skirt
Everyone needs a wardrobe of good basic skirts. Ones you can wear every day or for lots of different occasions. This Wear Everywhere Skirt fits the bill perfectly. A classic straight skirt with a single inverted pleat center front, makes this skirt easy to wear, ideal for the office, working, shopping, the school run – in fact, anywhere and everywhere. Once you’ve got a great fit on this skirt, mark up your pattern because it’s a quick and easy sew you’ll want to make again and again.
