Ella is a gathered skirt pattern designed for woven fabrics. It’s a step above basic, with a subtle high-low hem finished with a gathered tier.
The skirt has an A-line silhouette, which gives a flattering drape and movement through the hip. Choose from three different lengths: above the knee, on the knee, and midi length. There are also three pocket styles. Try patch pockets to create a more casual style, or go for a hidden pocket on the side seam.
The Ella skirt waistband sits on the natural waist. It closes with an invisible zip at centre back, and a hook and bar closure. Beginners will find this a great pattern to advance their skills, with detailed instructions for each step.
Available sizes 28-48. Waist from 55cm (21 1/2") to 105cm (41 1/2") and hip from 83cm (32 1/2") to 133cm (54 1/2")
Skill Level: Intermediate
Recommended Fabric: Light to medium weight non-stretch wovens with good drape. Cotton, viscose/rayon, silk, wools, and linen are all ideal. Fabrics with more body such as linen or cotton chambray will emphasise the A-line shape, while drapey fabrics such as rayons will hang closer to the body.
