Colette patterns are well designed and focus on clear instructions, well designed graphics, and links to in depth tutorials on the web. Their patterns translate into the most flattering garments that compliment a whole range of body shapes. They always include multiple variations for each design, ensuring you make the most of the pattern.
This quick and easy skirt will have you sewing up a new wardrobe in all your favorite fabrics. It's easy to sew, easy to fit, and works in such a wide range of fabrics.
With only 4 main pattern pieces (plus details like pockets and belt loops), you'll spend less time cutting and more time making. And because the cut is full, Zinnia only requires fitting in one place - the waist. So there are no tricky curves to get just right.
Version 1 is a gathered skirt that falls below the knee, with a button-front placket and patch pockets. Version 2 is pleated, hits above the knee for a shorter length, and includes belt loops and in-seam pockets. Version 3 is also pleated, falls below the knee, and is fully lined so that it can be made in sheer fabrics.
