Buy the A-Frame Skirt sewing pattern from Blueprints for Sewing. A-Frame is a pencil or A-line skirt inspired by the iconic A-frame house. Popular in the 50s and 60s, the A-frame embodies the DIY spirit, the love of the outdoors, and the modern aesthetic.

Version 1 is a straight pencil skirt with a kick pleat at the centre back seam.

Version 2 is a swingy A-line skirt with a front panel that can be cut on the straight grain or the bias.

Both versions feature triangular seaming, substantial pockets, a centre back zipper, and buttoned waistband. The skirt sits at the natural waist and ends just below the knee.
