Skye Short- Free PDF sewing pattern download
I was commissioned by the team at Peppermint Magazine to help develop this pattern for their free pattern initiative. Head to their website to learn more and download the pattern from issue 52! #peppermintpatterns
The Skye Short
The Skye short pattern is my most size inclusive pattern so far- with 16 different sizes ranging from a 35”hip to 60”hip. It features an elasticated back waistband, a curved front waistband and angled trouser pockets.
This short was inspired by a circle skirt and therefore is super flowy and roomy around the legs and the hips. The flat front and elasticated back waistband makes this a smart but comfortable wardrobe staple. Without any complicated fastenings, this is a quick garment to make and to take on and off.
Suggested fabrics: This pattern has been designed for light to mid-weight woven fabrics with drape, such as viscose, cotton sateen, cupro, rayon, silk, linen blends etc.
Skill Level: This pattern is great for beginners or advanced beginners.
