Buy the Berlin Skirt sewing pattern from Orageuse. Berlin is a fitted straight skirt. You can choose between two different lengths: short (above the knee, without a front slit) or long (upper third of the calf, with a front slit). The waist is high, with a removable belt under belt loops. Berlin has two front pleats that conceal wide side pockets. The skirt is closed with an invisible zipper at the centre back and has a lining.

What we think: I (Kate) have made this and loved how it came together. It’s a slightly more relaxed fit than a classic pencil. I wasn’t sure it would suit me so it was a bit of a gamble but I was so pleased with the end result.

Suggested fabrics: Mid-weight woven fabric made of wool or cotton, such as jacquard, gabardine, twill or denim. Pick a fabric that will hold the pleats well. Choose a thin, slippery lining.
