Patterns for Pirates Pencil Skirt (Free Pattern)

This is the Patterns for Pirates, Pirate Pencil Skirt. It’s free! Don’t you just love free? Patterns for Pirates (or P4P for short) has a bunch of fun freebies. The drafting is pretty good, and the patterns are mostly on the basic side. Great for beginners. It’s where I started with PDF Patterns. 

I made this skirt from some leftover sweater knit I had (Joann’s fabric). The length is shorter than the pattern, since I didn’t have enough to make it as long as intended, but I actually really like this length.  The pattern uses a knit waistband (you can also use the contoured waistband from the free leggings pattern (Pegs)). Since the fabric I used didn’t have a lot of stretch or recovery, I cut a waistband at the same width as the skirt and made a casing for 2 inch elastic. The hem is folded over twice at 1/2 inch. Loose sweater knit fabric has a tendency to fray, so be sure to finish all raw edges as if it’s woven fabric if you make one like this.

Make it fancy with a nice shirt and heels, or dress it down with flats.
