This is a DIGITAL PDF Sewing Pattern, not a paper pattern. Your pattern will be downloadable immediately after purchase.


This PDF sewing pattern comes in sizes XXS - 7XL. This pattern was drafted for our Curvy Fit Size Chart that is drafted for the height of 5’5”/165.10 cm. The instructions include steps for adjusting the pattern for height differences if needed.

For this pattern you pick your size by your true waist size (a bit above your belly button) and you don’t need to grade for hip size. When your hip size is larger than your waist size, pick the waist size but DO NOT stitch the pleats down. When your hip size is smaller than your waist size you won’t have to change anything and go for your true waist size.

Fabric Recommendation:

This pattern is designed to be made using woven or sturdy knit fabrics. The fabric you pick needs to be able to hold the pleats. 


Two Length Options: Mid-thigh & Above Knee

 Ribbing or Woven Fabric Waistband

Side zip

No trim pattern pages for quick and easy assembly

Layers printing feature is included for this pattern for your convenience.

My daughter's new favourite skirt!

I'd never made a pleated skirt or inserted an invisible zip before but the instructions are easy to follow and the skirt came together quickly. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and my daughter absolutely loves it.

Adult high waisted pleated skirt

I loved the skirt pattern it went together really quickly and easily, unfortunately the sizing isn't right so I had to make several alterations. I have now made 3 and intend to make more.

Awesome pattern!

I loved how this skirt turned out! I love how inclusive the sizes are!! My only critique would be that it’s not finished I prefer French seams or some other method.
