Gypsum Skirt pattern by Sew Liberated.
The Gypsum Skirt is the fraternal twin of the Arenite Pants – same ridiculously comfortable waistband and drapey pockets, more flounce. Layer it under or over dresses, wear it with a boxy top or cami, and shorten or lengthen the pattern depending on the season. View A has unique, crescent-shaped pockets and instructions for French-seamed pockets and flat-felled seam finishes of the four skirt panels. View B is the perfect introduction to garment sewing (or just a quick sew) with the same shape as View A, but sporting only two panels and inserted, side seam pockets.
This is a multisized pattern from US size 0-24 (UK 4-26).
The Gypsum Skirt is designed for woven fabrics. For View A, look for rayon challis, tencel twill, silk noil, or other fabric with fantastic drape. View B can handle a slightly stiffer woven fabric in addition to those recommended for View A. Good possibilities include mid-weight linen, double gauze, cotton ikats, and lightweight denim.
- View A: 45”-wide fabric: 3.2m
54”-wide fabric: 2.5m
- View B: Sizes 0-12, all fabric widths: 3m
Sizes 14-24, all fabric widths: 3.2m
- For the waistband Sew Liberated recommend Dritz 2” Soft Waistband Elastic.
This pattern is suitable for advanced beginners, with view B suitable for beginners.
