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 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!
