Get your baaad self into these Superfly Skirts, designed for firm
but drapey fabrics like denim, corduroy and cotton velvet-but
also pretty darn fabulous in heavy crepe, linen or tropical wool.
Unlined, narrow A-line skirt has darts front & back, and a contrast
faced waist and hemline. Skirt sits on the natural waist and features
center front & back seams, front fly zipper fastening, belt carriers
& optional (but oh-so-very highly recommended!) top stitching.
Short skirt finishes at the knee; longer version finishes at mid-calf.
Wear this great Skirt with our Metropolitan Tie Me Down Top and
Seriously Stylin’ Jacket for a groovy workday outfit, or team it with
our Weekender Sunshine Tops and a yummy cardigan for a casual look.
Sizes 6-8-10 need around 1 yard for the short skirt and 1 1/2 yards
for the longer skirt; sizes 12-14-16-18 need around 1 1/4 yards for
the short skirt and 1 3/4 yards for the longer skirt; and sizes 20-22-24-26
need around 1 1/2 yards for the short skirt and 1 3/4 yards for the longer skirt.
All yardages are for 60” /150 cm wide fabric.
You will also need about 1/4 yard fusible interfacing, 3/4 yard contrast
(quilting cotton or similar) or lining for the hem & waist linings,
1x 1/2” /13 mm button, a trouser hook & eye and 1 x 8” / 20 cm zipper.
Topstitching thread is optional (but recommended!)

As a beginner sewer, I had a lot of trouble interpreting the fly zipper instructions. I ended up ignoring them and working it out eventually. The rest of the instructions are very clear and easy, and the skirt is Gorgeous! The contrast top stitching looks fab, and I love just walking with a bit of a flick so I can catch a glimpse of the contrast hem! It's a really smart skirt, very versatile. anyone with a bit of sewing experience should have no worries at all putting it together.
