Here is a new addition to my slowly growing downloadable sewing patterns.
This sewing pattern is for a basic A-line skirt you can choose to make without or with trim in another colour of fabric. (See images) An easy and quickly made skirt in the sizes Small, Medium or Large.
The sizes measure Small, waist 70 cm / 27.5 inches Medium, 75 cm / 29.5 inches Large, waist 80 cm / 31.5 inches
In the sewing instructions I describe two simple ways of how to make the skirt longer and/or wider.
In the PDF files I describe step by step how to sew your own skirt guided by drawings and photos. Also for a beginner in sewing, the instructions are simple to follow.
The PDF files consist of * the pattern for the A-line skirt which consists of 16 pages in A4 or US letter format * a read me file in English * and the sewing instructions in English
To get an idea of the fit you see me wearing the skirt in the photos in a size Small. My measurements are waist 70 cm / 27 inches, height 1.69m / 5'5"
The maximum dimensions of fabric you will need to make the skirt is 140 wide x 100 long cm / 1.50 yard wide by 1.10 yard long. And you will need a zip of around 22 cm / 7 inches.
***Please note to print page 1 of the pattern before printing the rest of the pages. Page 1 contains the test square to see if the pattern is printed in the actual size. In the Read-me-file is explained how to print the pattern with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
PDF files can be read with the free software Adobe Acrobat Reader, often already installed on computers but if not, safe to download from the internet.
If you have any questions, before or after downloading the files, you can always contact me.

In 2015 I created Bloem Linen making linen aprons. In the following years I slowly added linen clothing and nightwear to my brand. Regularly I received messages from customers asking if I would sell my sewing patterns. And these demands lead to plunging into learning how to turn my paper sewing patterns into downloadable files.
I hope you enjoy my always growing list of patterns. If you have questions, remarks, suggestions or see faults in my patterns, please don't hesitate to write me, I am always open to improve my patterns.
Thank you, Marion
