    Well drafted and a clear tutorial!

  2. An Staute

    Be nobel! Be a duchess! I made 3 and love em all! An easy quick sew!

  3. Jen

    Super easy pattern to put together, and the skirt goes together in a snap! With only three seams, it’s done in a flash and you can have one finished in less than an hour. I’m pretty sure this’ll be half my wardrobe by fall!

  4. Amy Betts (verified owner)

    The Duchess is an extremely versatile pattern, quick sew, and the instructions are wonderful and easy to understand. This pattern will quickly become a staple in my closet, and I’m not normally a skirt wearer!

  5. Maegan (verified owner)

    The Duchess: simple yet chic, quick yet elegant. Available in both knit and woven options, the versatility allows me to keep making different versions of this skirt for everyday and special occasions!

  6. Ana Barros (verified owner)

    Lovely skirt. A easy and quick pattern to sew. With a perfect and fantastic result!!!! Chic or casual but always amazing

  7. Kristen Paras

    Beautiful skirt!! Easy, fast sew! I love the length and hem line options. Definitely a must have skirt in the files!

  8. Loralyn Buelow (verified owner)

    Live this skirt! I live that it can be made with knit or woven fabric as well. That leaves endless possibilities! The directions were very easy to follow which made it a quick sew! Can’t wait to make a few more!

    I made a knit midi with the dramatic skirt rise…and it’s LOVE! The pattern is easy to put together (clear, large font and lines) and doesn’t waste ink or paper. The tutorial is honestly the best I have seen with lots of links for extra help, well organized with clean lines/separation of items, and the illustrations make assembly a breeze. This is a quick and easy sew – seriously less than an hour to print/tape/cut/sew. I appreciate the knit OR woven option – which opens the door for endless possibilities. The final product is simply stunning. I used a brushed ITY and the drape was perfect.

    This is a very versatile skirt that can easily be dressed up or down by fabric choice. Since it is designed for knits AND wovens, the options are seemingly limitless. The instructions are so clear and well-illustrated as well.

  11. Annette Boehmer (verified owner)

    Sew many options for this fun skirt! Perfect staple for summer!

  12. johnssdeere (verified owner)

    I love this pattern! It was such a fun and easy sew. It is classy and comfortable and perfect for chasing toddlers!

  13. Stacie Pinkston (verified owner)

    Great job! The instructions cover everything, a beginner could definitely make this and probably learn a few things while doing it.

  14. Angel S. (verified owner)

    This simple skirt makes you feel so elegant. The directions are clear and easy to follow and I love the versatility of being able to use knit or woven fabric.

    Finally got around to making making this and I LOVE. It took less than an hour to sew (using knit). I’m short and it including thorough/simple instructions on how to shorten the skirt and still get the look i wanted. I’ll definitely be making more!

  18. Mandie (verified owner)

    I love all the diffent options! It’s flirty and modest.

  19. Ellen V. (verified owner)

    I just had a baby about a month ago and have the famous mom tummy. After putting on the duchess I felt more confident despite how I have felt about my body. You NEED this skirt!!!

  20. Carrie (verified owner)

    I am fairly new to garment sewing and found this pattern to be wonderfully easy to follow. All the options were easily to understand, and allowed me to make a beautifully customized skirt. The links to relevant tutorials were a blessing and a timesaver. Thank you!

  21. deblabounty (verified owner)

    I made this skirt in a lovely shimmering silk. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. I am so pleased with the result. I made this with the dramatic cut, and even with the high hem, it was modest enough for my sister to feel comfortable and elegant. I am so grateful that the designer made the pattern available for free! Thank you very much.

  22. oldcrow0879 (verified owner)

    Great skirt for Summer and the best part is that it’s FREE!!! A real easy and fun make…..

  23. thomasdokter.miriam (verified owner)

    This is what I was looking for. Thank you so much for this pattern.

  24. rachel.ryznar (verified owner)

    Amazing skirt pattern, so quick and easy to put together. Already recommended to a friend. The layers feature made putting the pattern together and cutting out so much easier. It’s such a versatile pattern, can’t wait to make more (first one made in floral scuba with rose gold zip)

  25. joanne_gardner (verified owner)

    I haven’t got round to making this yet, as I’ve been busy with other projects. I’m a beginner sewer and the instructions appear to be clear and easy to follow. It looks elegant and I can’t wait to make several ready for the warmer weather. I will update this review after I have made the skirt and report whether it really is as easy as it looks.

  26. karen.derby (verified owner)

    Great pattern, easy to read, fits well and layers make it so quick to put together

  27. karen.derby (verified owner)

    Great pattern with clear easy to follow instructions, lots of options for finishing.

  28. Teckla Buller (verified owner)

    Recently got this pattern, but summer got in the way and I haven’t gotten it sewn yet. I need some skirts now that I’ve lost weight and am really looking forward to making it. Following on FB to see what everyone else is doing.

  29. tailles (verified owner)

    Snel en gemakkelijk te maken met zeer veel mogelijkheden 🙂

  30. Selaine Martosoedarmo (verified owner)

    i havent sewn this yet, but if put it on my to sew list! will be mashing this skirt pattern to make a dress.

  31. Lisa Koenen (verified owner)

    The pattern is pretty easy to understand and sew. There are a couple areas on the zipper part that I feel need better instructions but I was able to figure it out. It is a tad bit short for me in the front, you may want to measure the pattern before cutting. I made 3 variations and I really like them!

  32. Alice Parker-Louth (verified owner)

    My first proper dressmaking project in ages, but it’s definitely made me want to do more! Found the instructions really easy to follow, and much more comprehensive than patterns I’ve used in the past.

    My 15 year old daughter fancied this skirt, she is a +1 size on this pattern so hard to shop for.
    She has only really made weird stuff and scrunchies before this but had made the whole thing including the pattern in 6 hours with a meal in between!!!
    This required minimal input from me and she overcome her fear of the serger!!!
    The end result is quite remarkable actually, I should have adjusted the tension for the velour before the hemming, but that’s the wines bad!!!! If I had remembered then this would have been spot on for the beginner.
    She is very pleased and proud of her new skirt, thank you x

  34. Bethany Smith (verified owner)

    Newbie on sewing and the pattern and tutorial is so clear! And fits well. Took me more than an hour because I m so new at this but I m so happy with the result.

  35. Anya Dharmasetia (verified owner)

    Made a Maxi skirt. It was too long in the back but that’s my fault for not shortening (I’m pretty short). But the instructions were very easy to follow. Had no problems completing the project!
