Tulip Skirt PDF Sewing Pattern

Super versatile, the Tulip Skirt is a true wardrobe must-have. A classic tulip shape, it’s one of Lisa’s favourite silhouettes. Designed to be gorgeously flattering, it has pretty slanted pleats at the front, with darts at the back for subtle shaping. The side seams curve to give that lovely shape, and also play host to super functional in-seam pockets. (Who doesn’t love a pocket!) Sitting at the waist, it has a curved waistband, designed to hug your waist with maximum no-gape effect.

With both a mini and a knee-length option, the Tulip is your best friend for all seasons and occasions. Pair with tights and the mini version is your perfect winter companion, or for those of you enjoying warmer weather, make the knee length version and show off those bare legs.

Tulip Skirt is a joy to sew as well as wear. It’s full of techniques so it’s great for advanced beginners eager to learn some new skills – get to grips with darts, pleats, pockets and inserting an invisible zip. A one-day project, it’s a satisfying make that you’ll want to make over and over again.

Sewing Level
The Tulip Skirt is an advanced beginner level pattern. If you have made a simple top or skirt before you should be able to tackle this!

Fabric Suggestions
The Tulip Skirt works best in mid-weight woven fabrics with a good amount of structure. Think medium weight cottons, wools and soft furnishing fabrics. In anything too lightweight or drapey the Tulip Skirt will lose its shape.

Fabric Requirements
The Tulip Skirt is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

What will I receive?
The downloadable pattern file contains:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
  • fully-photographed printable instruction booklet
  • imperial/metric conversion size chart
  • copyshop permission letter

The Tulip Skirt pattern is either 24 A4/US letter pages, or 1 A0 copyshop page.

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.
