*** This pattern has now sold out in print, but you can still buy it as a PDF download pattern here!! ***


The ultimate skirt pattern!  Both A-line and Asymmetric styles are included on the pattern and with a deep double layered fold over waistband, these skirts are flattering, super comfortable to wear and really quick to sew. See more versions under the #miytapton and #taptonskirt hashtags on Instagram and on this Pinterest board. You can also find loads of inspiration, tips, reviews and tutorials specific to this pattern on Wendy's blog here.

The pattern is multi-sized and printed on 80gsm white paper (not flimsy tracing paper) which is packaged in a white paper bag with an A4 book of instructions (example in last photo). This is NOT a downloadable pdf pattern that you have to print and stick together yourself.

The multi-size pattern includes 5 sizes which cover the following body measurements:
HIP 88cm (34.5") to 104cm (41").

This pattern is only suitable for stretch knit fabrics.  You can mix and match your fabrics, using a heavier, lower stretch knit for the skirt as long as you use a knit with some elastane content for the waistband.  Help with choosing fabrics can be found on the Wendy's blog here and here.

This design is easy and will suit beginners that have just started to sew!

The pattern comes with a thorough instruction booklet which covers: 
* fabric requirements
* cutting layouts
* an explanation of fabric layouts and cutting
* how to sew knit fabrics on a domestic sewing machine
* instructions & diagrams for how to make both skirts.

The patterns are designed and written by Wendy Ward, an experienced designer and qualified teacher and they have been thoroughly road-tested by her eager sewing students. Rest assured you will find MIY Collection patterns well explained in down-to-earth and accessible language with clear, detailed diagrams.  Wendy has been writing instructions for people just like you since 2007.
