Emmeline is a pretty, high-waisted skirt with a button front, beautiful bow belt and half-stitched inverted box pleats. The waist features a waistband with belt loops to keep the belt neatly in place.

To create that elegant, slimline effect, the pleats are partly stitched, which is ideal for those who don’t like to add extra volume. 1950’s inspired with a modern edge, Emmeline sits just below the knee and is the perfect length for spring and summer.

The Emmeline Skirt is a lovely afternoon project for beginners onwards. With inverted box pleats, buttonholes and a waistband there’s lots of new techniques for sewing newbies to get stuck into, whilst she’ll be a nice quick sew for anyone who has made a few garments before.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
