A modern classic with a super-chic silhouette, this fab paneled 
Skirt is designed for firm but
drape-y skirt-weight fabrics like
heavy crepe,
washed linen, heavy sueded silk, soft twill,
bottom-weight rayon and soft, heavy cottons.

Gently flared A-line paneled unlined Skirt has a self-lined,
shaped waist yoke that sits at the
natural waist, plus an invisible
side seam
zipper closure. Skirt features a deep inverted
crescent-shaped hem-band, and finishes just below the knee
at the center front & back; the
sides are slightly longer.

Topstitch detail along
the panel and hem-band seams is optional.

This gorgeous skirt is a year-round wardrobe essential, perfect if
you want something that’s
easy to wear as well as chic, modern and
super-flattering. Your Lantern Skirt looks greatworn with a flat or low
heel or a cool modern
wedge.

It will look fabulous paired with a
cleverly-cut twisted & draped
knit top, but also
think about wearing it with a cropped fitted
jacket and a simple tank, with graphic jewelry and a simple clutch
 to complete the look.

    Just my style...

    Published by Amy on 11th Oct 2016

    As soon as I saw this pattern, I knew I had to have it. It came together easily, and for once, I had no issues with the zipper, and that looks perfect. This fits me great and fits into my wardrobe well. I made it in 100% European linen from fabrics.com and I love the way that skirt drapes with this fabric. However, after I wore it once, there was some fading around the lap crease area - this is entirely a defect of the fabric. I will probably have to dye the skirt to correct that. So, I recommend linen, but maybe not that linen. I don't recall having issues interpreting the pattern instructions.

    Brilliant for Summer Breezes!

    Published by Nadine Weaver on 8th Feb 2016

    I made this in calico as my test sample. I realised that I need more practice on Blind Zips! Easy to make, comfortable to wear, will be making a few of these for myself and sisters. I might, though, cut the bottom section in two pairs (one in fabric, the other in a light lining fabric) and treat the bottom as I would the waist-band; enclosed. Again - I can't wait to make the next one, then the next one...

    Unique and chic

    Published by Chera Cruickshank on 19th Sep 2015

    The Lantern skirt is a very unique shape, and I was looking for a skirt with interesting design details. This pattern fit those criteria well. The pattern has just four pieces: CF/CB, SF/SB, waistband and hem band, so is quick to trace, cut and assemble. One quibble: the hem on the hem band is not addressed in the instructions. I did my thing and hemmed it with 1,5cm (5/8 inch) allowance, which worked well enough, although I tend to prefer a deeper hem.

    My muslin went together well, and my alterations were of length (I am non-tall and removed 10cm/4 inches) from the main skirt pieces and some reduction at the waist to fit. I liked the width of the hem band and wanted it to start at knee level. I also added a lining, using the main skirt pieces, which makes it a funny shape! Next time, I will level the hem of those pieces. I used a gorgeous black linen and love my new skirt! I received many compliments due to the unique (and chic!) shape of the skirt. I am looking in my fabric stash (and, if I'm honest, in the shops!) for a good print to try for my next iteration. Highly recommended!

    Relatively an easy pattern however pattern instructions were not the easiest to follow. I am an experienced sewer however It was my first time sewing a Hot pattern.
