Sew Liberated Gypsum Skirt
£13.95 – £20.95
Buy the Gypsum Skirt sewing pattern from Sew Liberated. Gypsum is the skirted sister of the Arenite Pants – same ridiculously comfortable waistband and drapey pockets, with more flounce, perfect for twirling through any season. Layer it under or over dresses, wear it with a boxy top or cami, and shorten or lengthen the pattern depending on the season and your style.
View A has unique crescent-shaped pockets, sewn with French seams, and four flat-felled panels. View A is great for adventurous beginners to advanced sewists, or anyone looking to expand their skills. View B is the perfect introduction to garment sewing (or just a quick sew) with the same shape as View A, but with in-seam side pockets and simple front and back panels.
