This skirt is from the Victorian to Edwardian era, 1800s to 1900s.
As the Victorian age ended at the beginning of the 20th century and the Edwardian age began, women entered the sporting and professional world. This was the skirt they wore, because it was comfortable and unencumbered by bustles and hoops.
The skirt has 5 gores and the pattern has the option of full-length or street-length. It is finished with a buttoned placket at centre-back.
Wouldn’t this look amazing in shweshwe or a lovely colourful print.
This is a paper pattern and includes instructions for decorative cutwork embroidery (Broderie Anglaise). The pattern is a multi-size pattern from SMALL to 3XL.
Medium to heavyweight cottons and blends, linen, silk, lightweight wool, thin wale corduroy, or velvet.
