(1 customer review)


SKU: L001 Category:


A super comfy, relaxed fit ladies skirt.

With a flat front and a gathered elasticised waistband – classy at the front, comfy at the back – and a choice of a curved or straight pocket, the Ladies Explorer Skirt is perfect for shopping, dinner with friends, school runs, beach picnics, with a singlet or tank top in Summer and tights or leggings in Winter.  She’s going to be your best friend in the cupboard.


Available in 6 sizes, XS – XXL



Fabric Requirements:

A total of 1.8 meters or 2 yards.  If you’d like a contrasting pocket and waistband lining, you’ll need 1.3m for the main body of the skirt and .5m for the pocket and lining (1.5y and .5y).


Tools needed:

  • Sewing machine
  • Overlocker (would be handy and quick but SO not necessary)
  • Scissors
  • Safety Pin
  • 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

An advanced beginner.  You’ll need to know (or be willing to Google)  how to:

  • iron on interfacing
  • top stitch
  • stitch in the ditch

    I love this skirt pattern! Very easy to cut out and sew…great directions. I made the size according to the measurements but it was a bit big so took in the elastic and the side seams. Next time I will size down. This is currently my favourite thing to wear 🙂
