Explorer Skirt – digital girls skirt pattern


Our girls PDF skirt sewing pattern, the Explorer Skirt! 10 sizes and endless opportunities for pattern hacks.

SKU: ES00 Categories: ,


A girls’ skirt designed for adventures and exploring.  The pockets are deep and wide enough to carry the treasures your little lady cakes finds during her day.   The elasticised waistband with a flat front makes this pattern both comfy to wear and easy for kiddos to dress themselves.  The shortish skirt length lets her get out and about and explore her surroundings.


The Explorer Skirt is fairly easy & quick, and rather gratifying to make.  Once you have your pattern pieces assembled, you could knock one out over a longish cup of tea and slice of cake.  I’m all about cake with my (fairly) instant gratification!


It’s also a great stash buster: mix & match the front and back skirt pieces, or even chop up the pockets using the pocket pattern hack.  The comfy fit, shorter length of the skirt, and fairly quick construction means the Explorer Skirt would be great for gift giving.

  • Iron – for pressing seams and hems
  • A quick unpick.  Well, not really, but if you are bull-at-a-gateish like me, yeah you will.  I’m not impatient, I’m enthusiastic.


Skill Level

Beginner.  Maybe if you’ve never touched a sewing machine before you might want to find something with less steps as your first crack, but generally speaking if you can/are willing to ask The Google how to:

  • top stitch
  • iron on interfacing

then you’ll be good to go.
