My Handmade Wardrobe Button Up Skirt Paper Pattern
My Handmade Wardrobe Patterns are brought to you by Crafty Sew&So
Imagine waking up and choosing a unique garment from a wardrobe full of your own creations. With My Handmade Wardrobe Patterns, you can create comfortable and stylish everyday essentials to get you excited about getting dressed every single day!
This fun and feminine, button-through skirt features swishy flared panels to create a cute 70s retro look. You can choose to add patch pockets, belt loops and jeans buttons to the front opening.
We think this style would look fab in chunky corduroy for a cosy Autumn look, linen for a cool beach style to pop on over a swimsuit or in denim for a classic look for all seasons.
Your pattern pack will include:
- Full multi-size pattern to fit approx. UK size 8-22
- Full-colour instruction booklet with super-simple instructions and step by step photo guides
The Button Up Skirt Pattern is also available in PDF format to print at home

It is vitally important, when sewing your own clothes, to take accurate measurements of your body, and not rely on the sizing you expect to buy on the high street. For this pattern we have opted to use sizing XS-XXL, which approximately covers UK sizes 8-24. Measure yourself first to choose the right size for you!
