We are so glad to release our fifth sewing pattern just before the end of the year, the Yasmeen Skirt! This skirt is one of the garments we absolutely wanted to release when we started Just Patterns. We love the shaped seam lines that enhance all curves in the right places and make it a super flattering option for when you need to dress up. With a Yasmeen in your handmade wardrobe, you are guaranteed a show-stopping outfit but with the versatility of a skirt rather than a dress.
The Yasmeen skirt is a dramatic maxi skirt with figure flattering seam lines. It is fitted through the hips and starts flaring out above the knee. The skirt features an invisible zipper and a grosgrain inner waistband. Depending on the fabrication and the styling, the skirt can take on a very special occasion look or a more casual vibe.
The Yasmeen skirt pattern follows the updated look of our information package. It contains information about fabric recommendation and PDF printing. The seam lines are no longer printed on the pattern to provide a cleaner look, but notches are strategically position so that you can check that you are using the right seam allowance.
The grey sample shown is made from a mid-weight wool tweed, while the white one is silk crepe de chine. For this pattern, we recommend light to mid-weight woven fabrics with drape such as silk, wool crepe, linen twill, rayon, etc. The quantity of fabric required will depend on the size you make, the final length of your skirt and the width of your fabric. For instance, for a size 46 in 60″wide you need 4 yards.
This sewing pattern is available from size 34 to 46 (see our size chart for more information). The pattern includes:
_ a layered PDF with 4 printing options (37 pages in A4 and Letter, 2 pages A0 in US Copy Shop 36″x48″);
_ a cutter’s must;
_ a pdf layout;
_ a suggested order of operations.
Just Patterns products are meant for for ambitious dressmakers who already know the basics of sewing. In addition to the order of operations, we gather useful tutorials and information for each pattern on our resource pages.
