£9.00 – £16.00
Buy the Cecile Skirt sewing pattern from Vikisews. Cecile is a semi-fitted skirt with an asymmetrical cut. The skirt features a straight silhouette on the left side and a flared insert on the right. The insert takes the place of the right side seam and has identical style lines on the front and back. Cecile fastens with an invisible zip in the left side seam as well as a sewn-on hook and eye on the waistband. The skirt is fully lined and is below the knee length, with a longer curved hem in the insert area.
