Digital sewing pattern Nolwenn skirt


The Nolwenn skirt is a trapeze skirt with a central box pleat and piped pockets. The box pleat gives the illusion of shorts!

In its short version, sew it in a plaid or houndstooth wool, to wear with moccasins or derbies and a loose shirt.

For summer, you can make a version in denim or colorful cotton gabardine for a very peppy look!

For a midi version, use a wool crepe, to be worn with heeled boots and a lavaliere-collared blouse.

Level : Beginner ++

For the short version, I recommend fabrics with staying power to preserve the skirt's trapeze structure: wool, cotton gabardine, cotton twill, wool twill, denim, suede ...

For the midi version, you can choose all the above fabrics, but also ones with a little more fluidity; wool crepe, viscose crepe or tencel!
