Sew Liberated - Gypsum Skirt

Sew Liberated - Gypsum Skirt Pattern 

The Gypsum Skirt is the fraternal twin of the Arenite Pants - same ridiculously comfortable waistband and drapey pockets,  more flounce.   Layer it under or over dresses, wear it with a boxy top or cami, and shorten or lengthen the pattern depending on the season.  View A has unique, crescent-shaped pockets and instructions for French-seamed pockets and flat-felled seam finishes of the four skirt panel.  View B is the perfect introduction to garment sewing (or just a quick sew) with the same shape as View A, but sporting only two panels and inserted, side seam pockets.

Fabric recommendation:  The Gypsum Skirt is designed for woven fabrics.  For View A, look for rayon challis, tencel twill, silk noil, or other fabric with fantastic drape.  View B can handle a slightly stiffer woven fabric in addition to those recommended for View A Good possibilities include mid-weight linen, double gauze, cotton ikats, and lightweight denim.
