Thanks for visiting On the Cutting Floor today!
I am glad to present a new free pattern made using Patternmaker USA.
I was very pleased with the results of the software. It, not only, has given a more professional look to the patterns, but it has also speeded up the process by about 4 times!

The Rachel Skirt
This super easy skirt that is ideal for beginners or those who want to spend less time in the sewing room during this summer (and enjoy the good weather 😉 )
The Skirt features:
A fit knit skirt with an adaptable waistband.
Please, check on the A-line top tutorial for the step by step instructions.
- 1 1/2 yard of medium weight stable knit
- printed pattern
- ballpoint sewing needle
- 1/4 yard of 3/4 inch wide elastic
- Twin needle
- Coordinating color thread
This is the sizing chart for the sample patterns, not the finished garments.
The pattern comes with 3/8 seam allowance.
I used a medium weight, stable knit will work wonderfully for the skirt
Here is the screenshot of how the pattern layout will look like. You will print 21 pages and the pattern is available in letter and A4 format.
The pattern comes in letter, Copy Shop (A0) and A4 format. The pages OVERLAP 1 inch.
Please notice that there might be small differences from printer to printer.
Remember to check the ”actual size” printing option:
Please print all pages and place them as shown in the following printing layout:
Letter and A4
This patterns comes with specific marks to put the pieces together:
The blue diamond the symbol to help you to put the pages together. Each page has half of the diamond on each page. When the pages are aligned correctly, it will form the full diamond

Thank you Cat!
Thank you, gonna try it. How much fabric do you suggest for a size 18?
Thank you Cherie, for sizes 4 to 12 1 1/2 yards. For sizes 14 to 22, the skirt should be on fold and you will need 2.51 yards.

That is one super cute skirt:) having a little tummy (post child birth is my excuse, rather than lack of exercise!) I’m wondering if the ruching would distract from said tummy!
Thank you Vicky! I hope it works that way 😉
