Festival Freebie Skirt

I can’t believe this skirt is FREE! Can you?
Kristi is so amazing and generous to release such an awesome freebie, I mean… this is skirtΒ is AH-MAZING!

It’s Fantastic how Flattering it is, it’s so Flowy and Feminine….Β All the good F’s! πŸ˜€

It’s a woven gathered wrap skirt that closes with 2 buttons at the waistband. You can choose if you want it at your natural waist or lower on your hip. It wraps from one side of your waist to the other, so if you were wondering…. nope, it doesn’t open while walking nor sitting. No risk of flashing anyone (unless you want to, of course! πŸ˜› ).

I choose for natural waist because I feel that’s more flattering to my body type, so I went by waist size and graded from there. Well, I didn’t actually grade it per se. Due to the nature of the skirt and how the gathering is forgiving, I went a bit rogue on this one. This is how I cut/graded my skirt:

  • waist size 14
  • front panels straight size 14
  • back panel size 20

It fits to perfection and I’m more than thrilled with it!

I paired my skirt with another G+G freebie, the I Heart You top.
In order to make it off the shoulder, I cut two fronts of the dolman top and omitted the neckband, using the fold over method instead. It turned out really cute, if I may say so myself! πŸ˜‰

To get the I Heart You top you need to join G+G’s Facebook Group, and go files.Β  There you’ll find this top and plenty other nice free patterns!

The Festival Freebie Skirt is available at G+G’s website, there’s also a super cool bonnet inclueded. πŸ˜‰

    I adore your outfit! How did you determine you needed a different sizing option (your waist hack) to get your skirt to fit you correctly? I’m getting ready to print the pattern, so please share if you can. Thank you!

      Thank you so much!
      I have a 3 size difference between my waist and hips, so grading is always a must. Most of the hip measurement comes from my backside, so I usually distribute the grading like this:
      If I need a size 14 waist and 20 hips I’ll grade the front panel from 14 to 18 and back panel from 14 to 20. I know it’s not the norm, but it works for me πŸ˜‰
      Since the skirt is pretty gathered, I decided to just use size 20 back panel so I have enough fabric for the junk in the trunk, and follow the waist measurement for the rest.
      I hope this makes sense… If not, let me know! πŸ˜‰

  2. Wat mooi! Vind ze beide erg goed gelukt. Bedankt voor de tip voor de gratis patronen, ik was nog op zoek naar een patroon voor een leuke maxirok voor de zomer πŸ™‚
