The Maple Skirt is my first pattern in the fall/winter 2016 line up. I wanted to created a pattern that transitions well from summer to winter, and this skirt does just that! Wear it with a simple tee for warmer weather, or pair it with leggings and a sweater for cooler fall weather.
The skirt is an A-line shape and features buttons up the center front. There are many details that make this skirt a trendy and fashionable piece for fall: curved patch pockets, belt loops, and a separate lined waistband. The adjustable button hole elastic is optional, and helps extend the skirt’s wearability by allowing it to be worn slightly big. My daughter also likes that the elastic allows her to pull it up and down without undoing the buttons.
The pattern is drafted for the intermediate sewist since buttonholes can be a bit intimidating for beginners, but swap out the buttons for snaps and you have a quick and easy sew! I’m also planning a sew a long for the pattern next week that will walk you through all the steps in much more detail than the tutorial has room for.
As with all my patterns, the computer drawn, printable pattern pieces are no-trim, and the pattern includes layers so that you can print only the size you need.
