I am so excited to be sharing our spring pattern, the Mave Skirt, with you. The Mave is an elastic waist skirt with a drawstring, inseam pockets and an optional lining. The skirt can be made with or without ruffles and in different lengths to create numerous options including mini, midi and maxi lengths depending on your preference.
The Mave may be our most beginner friendly pattern to date. We will be doing a full sewalong in a couple of weeks too, so even the most newbie sewist should be able to handle it.
The Mave skirt currently is offered in PDF only (Although we hope to print it soon.). It comes in two size ranges. You can choose between sizes 0-18 and sizes 14-30. Check out our listings to see both body and finished measurements to choose your size.
We like light to medium weight fabrics for this pattern. This could include rayon challis, linen, voile, lawn, chiffon and georgette to name a few. If your fabric is on the sheer side we recommend sewing up the optional lining. We will be talking more about fabrics and notions next week as we prepare for the sewalong so be sure to check back for that information.
One of our favorite things about the Mave skirt is that we used options instead of views. This means that there are tons of different versions of this skirt you can sew up by cutting at different lines on the pattern pieces or lengthening, shortening or simply omitting the ruffles. The instructions clearly show you where and what to cut for each option. It gives a lot of versatility to an otherwise simple pattern.
