Skirts are an integral part of any woman’s wardrobe. It can be hard to find a skirt pattern that has unique design elements, but is still quick and easy to sew. Welcome Patsy, the modern day peasant skirt with all the bells and whistles. Fast and easy to assemble, Patsy will never go out of style. It has a wide waist yoke for shaping, a slightly gathered skirt, patch pockets, and a bottom panel.
You can eliminate the bottom panel for a shorter skirt, or check the Seamwork Member Exclusive for a short, pleated version of Patsy. Experiment with directional stripes for all the pieces to give your garment more dimension. Try color blocking the pieces for a bold statement. Check out “One Pattern, Three Fabrics” in the June 2017 issue of Seamwork to see how certain textiles create different Patsy silhouettes.
