Our Zamia Skirt free sewing pattern is far from ordinary. You’re almost guaranteed to be asked: “Where did you get that skirt?” every time you go out in it. Make sure to pat yourself on the back when you say “I made it”, as you strut away while turning heads! This mod skirt has very unique details that scream for attention. The fitted silhouette hugs every curve in all the right places and Mood’s foil printed ponte shimmers in the light, while the sheer mesh aligns the hem, showing just a sliver of skin. I plan to wear this look on a date night with the hubby, but you could also rock this on a night out with your girls and break a couple of hearts! Try using a stretch knit or neoprene or scuba knit as another option. Be sure to let us know how you plan to wear your Zamia Skirt!
All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 30.
Sewing the skirt is pretty straight forward. Attaching the facing and mesh underlay may seem a little tricky, but it’s actually quite easy!
Once you’ve attached the front of the skirt to the back of the skirt at the side seams, you can set it aside and work on your facings.
Pin the facings together at the side seams, and do the same for the mesh underlay.
Next, sandwich the mesh between the skirt and the facing and pin it all the way around the bottom.
Follow the curved edges stretching the mesh to fit as you sew.
Press the facing and edge stitch the bottom to keep it nice and flat.
Now sew together your waistband front and back pieces. Pin the waistband to the skirt and stitch. Fold down the top of the waistband and topstitch along each edge.
Finish skirt bottom by trimming in with shiny double folded tape for a stunning look! That’s it, you’re done!
