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.

The skirt features triangular seaming and pockets in either a fitted pencil (Version 1) or swingy A-line (Version 2) style. It includes a centre back zipper and buttoned waistband. The skirt sits at the natural waist and ends just below the knee. The pencil skirt version features a kick pleat at the centre back seam.

The pattern features alteration instructions for proportion adjustment (different sizes at waist and hip) and shorten/lengthen adjustment. The waistband includes side seams for easy alteration after sewing.
