This modern, minimalist pencil skirt gently hugs your hips, yet allows for free movement thanks to the rounded side slit. ROMA will be the skirt you pair with a white button-down blouse and black heels when you want to feel put together and powerful. But it'll also be the skirt you pair with a simple tank or T, sandals and a tote as you stroll through the markets of Rome.
In order to get a fit similar to the photo, choose a pattern size that is 2 to 3 cm (3/4" to 1-1/4") wider than your own full hip (the widest point of your hips, around your bum) measurement.
Light- or medium weight denim(like) wovens are best for midi-skirt ROMA. These offer a good, sturdy structure no matter the weight, but also with a bit of give so that you can move easily. If you choose to work with a fabric with stretch (knits), then a tighter stretch, such as stretch denim or a heavier weight interlock, is best. These fabrics will hold their form better than lighter weight, super stretchy fabrics. Depending on the stretch, you will need to go down a (partial) size.
+ 2"/5cm wide elastic band the length of your natural waist + 1.25"/3cm
+ bias tape (view B only)
Beginner + ....but still fun (and quick!) for intermediate or advanced sewists.
