Gretel Skirt Adult PDF sewing pattern

This is a digital download pdf file for an adult skirt sewing pattern.

It is a retro flared A-line style, which fits from the waist and is loose over the hips.

There are 3 heights: Petite – 5’1 (155cm)
Average – 5’6 (167cm)
Tall – 5’11 (180cm)

It has been designed to have a panel front and back which will fit a fat half-metre (width 150cm+) or fat half adult panel (width 74cm) can be used for panel front (or the panel back) in all the sizes and length options.

That means you only need to use one metre (or yard if 150cm+ wide) on both the front and back of the skirt. All you need to decide on is a co-ordinate for the pockets and the sides!

It contains a full photo tutorial, a lookbook for inspiration and 2 pdf printing file options with layer features – A0 and A4/US letter sizes.

It is a fairly quick sew and is suitable for for all abilities. It comes with a cottage licence. 

There is also a matching child pattern. Check the bundle listings to get a reduced price on both.


The Skirt has optional pockets – which are ideal scrap busters and can also be used for smaller panels.

There are also 3 waistband options -narrow, wide and foldover.

The skirt length is approximated on making a just below the knee (skimming the lower kneecap) for the above sizes. If you’d like a longer skirt then why not try the tall option? Want shorter, try the petite.

It can also be worn as a banded dress as can be seen in the tester photos.
