Especially for beginners, this is the perfect flared skirt! A wardrobe essential, the Hollyburn Skirt has just the right amount of flare. It sits right at the waist for maximum figure flattery, and features super practical pockets!
Based on the popular Lonsdale Dress pattern, this skirt pattern includes three different lengths with three different amounts of flare. The shorter the skirt, the more flared the silhouette!
Additional details add emphasis to the waistline, with optional button tabs to feature pretty buttons, or belt loops to show off your favourite belts.
Pattern includes extra-thorough sewing instructions and detailed sewing diagrams. Perfect for your first garment project!
Easy to wear, simple to sew!
Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller waist, larger hips.

Quick and easy to make. No need for a muslin. Looks flattering on my pear-shaped body. Needs more fabric than most skirt patterns. I made version C based on how it looked on other people, but will make version B in the future as it comes a bit to high for me to feel decently covered. I'm tall and should have taken this into account.

I love the Hollyburn skirt! It's easy to make, flattering and the pockets are super cool and feel very vintage. A great project for the new sewist!

Super easy fit, clear instructions, love the waist tabs and pockets. Made up in a drapey poly cotton twill suiting. Very flattering, perfect fit, no adjustments needed. Fitted based on waist size as recommended. I would class myself as pear, asymmetric, intermediate sewer, Sewaholic fan.
