My favourite skirt pattern

I have dozens of patterns that I have only used once, a shameful number of patterns that I have not used at all, but only a handful that I have used several times...and Vogue 7735 is one of those.



Here are my versions;

My latest creation is View C, made up in a charcoal wool / polyester blend. I have tried to lighten the photograph, so that you can see the angled tuck lines.



This next one is a modified version of View C, made in Liberty batiste. I inserted godets in the tuck lines, omitted the back slit and changed the waistband to a facing.



These are all View A/B. The panels are sewn together with French seams. The panels are slightly flared, which gives the skirt a nice swing. The first 2 are made in a linen. The third one is made in a stretch poplin, which does not work so well with the French seams.



This last version was made from a bundle of offcuts from a dressmaker, sold in a remnant bin for $25. All gorgeous fabrics....enough to make both the skirt and camisole, with just one of the fabrics being leftovers from my sister's bridesmaids dress.

  1. I just had to get this pattern after seeing your versions, and found one on ETSY. It looks great, very useful.
