The Florence Skirt

The Florence skirt suits every occasion from casual to workwear. Close fitting from the natural waist to hips flattering our smallest proportions and then gently floating down to mid-calf.

Skills to learn/develop whilst making the Florence Skirt include handling lightweight fabrics, inserting zips, using facings, under stitching, clipping curves, creating darts, gathering and hems.

The Florence Skirt designed for a lightweight woven fabric such as Viscose, Chambray, crepe….anything that drapes so that the bottom skirt can swish. Take a look at our own Fabric Pack for the Florence Skirt HERE

    This is the first skirt I’ve made and truth be told I’m not much of a skirt wearer. But I wanted to try something with a bit of swish to see if I liked the style. And I like it a lot. The paper pattern and instructions came in a practical wallet for storage and it even had a cute label to sew into the skirt! The instructions were very clear and there is a helpful video to go with the instructions so it’s great if, like me, you are learning how to sew. In fact with the video it’s like being in a virtual sewing class. If you want to grow your sewing confidence then I can recommend this pattern.

      Ahhh Helen, I’m so happy that it helped you grow in confidence. That was exactly what I was trying to do! I’ve seen your skirt on instagram and it looks fabulous..you definitely suit a bit of swish. Dxx

    This is a great little skirt. I wanted a billowing tiered skirt but can’t take all that extra volume. This has a flattering fit around the waist and hips with a nice swoosh and billow at mid thigh. It fits true to size and the YouTube instructions are reallly helpful. I’d consider myself quite an experienced sewist but this is the best invisible zip insertion I’ve achieved. I wouldn’t hesitate to make more of these.

    I’m not a massive skirt wearer as they tend to twizzle around on me and drive me crackers. However I gave the Florence skirt a go as I thought if it was made for my measurements then the twizzle may not happen. I can confirm no twizzle occurs!
    A lovely pattern to put together. Instructions are clear and well written. It’s the perfect skirt to dress up or down and is ideal for many occasions. Excellent work Size Me!

    I am in love with this skirt! I love how it fits lovely around the waist and hips and then flares out so nicely with the gathers. The instructions are really clear so it’s a great pattern for all levels (I’m a beginner) and it’s a make that will not take much of your time so even better! I can’t wait to make another one
