The Haxby Skirt is suitable for intermediate dressmakers. In making Haxby, you will learn how to work with bias cut fabric and insert godets.
Fancy some extra help?
If you’d like some extra help, the Haxby Skirt pattern is also available as part of our Make a Godet Skirt online class on Stitch School, which comes with both video tutorials as well as illustrated written instructions.
The Haxby Skirt is designed for lightweight woven fabrics with lots of drape. We recommend viscose and lightweight crepes, as these will help the skirt retain the desired swishability!
The Haxby Skirt PDF sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 8-20.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
The downloadable pattern file contains:
- printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format) in all sizes
- fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
The Haxby Skirt pattern is either 34 A4 pages, 33 US letter pages, or 2 A0 copyshop pages.
If you purchase the PDF Pattern + Copyshop Printing option, you will also receive your pattern printed on A0 paper in the post. Find out more about our PDF Printing Service here.
So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. 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.
