Got a couple of hours to spare? Use them 
to whip up this modern wardrobe essential
that's seriously fast to make, and fabulously
versatile to wear. Choose a
light to medium
weight knit with a little stretch like a silk(y)
jersey, a rayon, bamboo or modal jersey or
an interlock knit as well as a lightweight ponte.

You can also use a drape-y stretch woven fabric,
like stretch crepe, charmeuse or panne velvet.
Don'€™t forget stretch fabrics like sequined or beaded
knits; the super-simple shape lets your fabrics
shine-just make sure your fabric stretches!

Pull-on, semi-fitted skirt has a classic slim A-line
silhouette, and features an invisible 'Hollywood'
™elastic waistline that lays flat and smooth.
Skirt has an optional center front and/or back seam,
and finishes with a narrow hem or a deep facing;
make your skirt with an optional lining for those
sheer fabrics. Add your favorite trims as you wish.

This easy-peasy skirt is guaranteed to become a

wardrobe workhorse...try it with your favorite tops,
blouses and T-shirts, with or without a jacket, or team

it with a same-fabric top for a 2-piece dress.

Wear your skirt with heels, wedges, flats or sneakers, it all works!

Shopping List

Sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 will need around 1 1/4 yards or 115cm fabric;
sizes 18-20-22-24-26 will need around 1 3/4 yards or 160 cm fabric.
*These fabric requirements assume that you'€™ll cut the front without
a center front seam and the back with a center back seam.*

If you are using the deep hem facing, you'€™ll need around 1/4 yard/23cm
knit or tricot interfacing;
you'€™ll also need enough 1"€ or 2.5cm wide
*soft* elastic to comfortably circle your hips.

All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.

    This was my very first HP pattern to make. I made a size 26. The fit was perfect, and the skirt looks great!

    This is literally just like the name states, a two hour skirt. Quick & easy to make, and effortless to wear. Find yourself a beautiful knit print and make this skirt (or a few) - you will love it for summer!
