Buy the Barkly Skirt sewing pattern from In the Folds. The Barkly Skirt is a panelled A-line skirt with pockets and a range of interesting and fun to sew details. It has been designed to be worn all year round – in summer in soft linens with sandals and in winter in denim with tights and boots.

View A sits on the natural waist (the top of the waistband will sit just above the natural waist) and features a shaped waistband, slanted pockets that are inset in the side panels and a hem facing. View B sits just below the natural waist (as it features a waist facing, rather than a waistband), has patch pockets (which are therefore optional) and side splits in the hem. Both styles feature a centre back invisible zip for a clean finish.

The styles can be mixed and matched so that you can combine your style preferences. More information can be found in the style variation kit here (also included in the PDF pattern).
