Maven Patterns - The Good Times Skirt Paper Sewing Pattern

$176.00 per metre
Tax included.

The Good Times pattern is a slim A-line skirt with a reverse seam detail that makes the most of a beautiful selvedge. Oh, and she has huge pockets! 

This skirt is fitted through the hip and has been designed to be made in 2-way stretch denim & takes advantage of those gorgeous selvedges that no-one wants to throw away!

But don’t worry if your favourite denim has a less than perfect selvedge, we’ve got you covered with 4 other seam finishes too.

With 2 hem options to choose from – finished with contrast fabric facing and deep topstitching or an on-trend raw edge finish you can create multiple looks from this one pattern.

The waistband cleverly uses the reverse of the denim for a delightful contrast. A centre back channelled zip finishes at the top of the waistband for a clean contemporary finish.
