I originally designed this skirt as a piece of my self-drafted dress for my dear sister to showcase the Bohemian Soul fabric collection I designed.

The biggest difference between this hi-lo skirt and other common varieties is the slope of the hemline. When I was looking for inspiration for the bottom of the dress I came upon this Pinterest photo:

I loved how dramatic the slope was from the lowest point of the hemline of the skirt and the top. Instead of a gradual high-low slope all the way around to the back, it drops steeply meeting the ground at the sides instead of the back. I lurved it. So The Duchess was born.

I named her The Duchess after The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. This skirt is feminine, bold, classy and memorable. Descriptors worthy of The Duchess of Cambridge herself.

  1. I have the duchess pattern but am having difficulty printing it to the correct scale. The test box has a larger box with a smaller one inside. Which one is supposed to be 1”?
