The Wear Everywhere Skirt – free pattern

The perfect skirt to fill a gap in my wardrobe.  Something I can wear everywhere and every day.  Love the pleat in front to give plenty of room without too much flare.

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.

We’ve talked before about sewing ‘real clothes for real women‘- sewing the sort of clothes you wear everyday, rather than too many fancy-smancy dresses and jackets that you rarely wear.  You’ll get plenty of wear from this every-day skirt.

I’ve made mine in a plain fabric so you can see the pleat detail easily, but this would look equally good in a small print.  Or even a stripe.  How about splitting the pleat down the center to follow through on the center front seam, and using a stripe to create the chevron effect that’s all in fashion right now!

    This is the easiest skirt I have made (and I am only a beginner). Thank you so much. I couldn’t have done it without the video to guide me through every step.

    Just what I’ve been looking for. I have a RTW denim skirt like this that I wear all the time and I wanted to copy. (Of course the denim skirt has pockets, so I’ll have to add those in) Thanks so much.

      So glad you found something you like. This skirt wears like a dream.

        I have a source for beautiful medium and heavy weight 100% Linen for less than $10.00 a yard at Fabrics-Store.com. I needed a pattern like this so that I could make a wardrobe of crisp linen skirts in a variety of colors at a reasonable cost. I can’t believe how perfectly this pattern is suited to use with linen! Now I’m searching for the perfect simple jacket to go with the skirt. Thank you from this easy-to-use pattern.

    Thanks Deby.

    Downloaded this yesterday and couldn’t make it unless I made it from curtaining material. Going shopping next week for fabric YAY! My friend dropped me some grey fine wool material this morning and guess what? I am wearing it!! Love it, it is so comfortable. Just spent ages trying to get a decent photo and when I uploaded to my PC I lost it. 🙁 Will try later when my son pops in as he is more technical than me. Thanks again, I am going to have a bash at your wrap top next. Joyce x

    I’ll be making a bunch of these soon, I think!

    Can I ask about the top that you’re wearing with the gray skirt, is that one of your patterns? I hope so; I need a pattern like that!

    • Deby Coles says:

      No, I bought that one, and it promptly almost fell to pieces the first time I washed it. Reminded me why I rarely buy and RTW clothes here on Cayman, such poor quality.

  5. Dara says:

    Deby, thanks “sew” much for this pattern! I look forward to trying this soon! Happy sewing!
