Maxine Skirt Sewing Pattern
This is a digital PDF sewing pattern.
This minimal-waste skirt pattern is designed to utilize as much of the entire piece of fabric as possible.
Maxine has a gathered skirt, an attached elasticated waistband with the option to add a drawstring tie and two patch pockets.
*For this pattern, there aren’t any pattern pieces to trace or cut out!
Instead, 3 cutting layout diagrams are provided with instructions for alternative ways to cut your fabric pieces, using your own measurements (A and B) to guide you.
This pattern is size inclusive. There is a formula included for calculating your fabric length and width required for any measurements.
Non-stretch wovens, light-medium weight (between 4-7oz / 110-240 gsm) cotton, linen, or viscose blends with a moderate drape.
*If using a very lightweight fabric with fluid drape, consider using fusible interfacing to stabilize waist ties.
• Most pattern testers used approximately 1.5 - 2.5 yards of fabric in widths varying from 36”-55”.
I recommend calculating the fabric needed for your size using the formula in the instructions on p.2 before purchasing fabric.
