Reznor Skirt - Digital Sewing Pattern
The Reznor Skirt is high waisted, fitted knit skirt that finishes below the knee. View A has an
angled box pleat and an asymmetrical hemline, while View B has a flat front and a straight hemline. Both views contain lining with an internal elastic waistband.
Suitable for intermediate sewers and above.
A to N - see size chart in images
This pattern has been drafted for a height of 5’7 and ends just below the knee.
It’s recommended to make a toile first in an inexpensive fabric to work out any fitting
alterations you may need, before cutting into your chosen fabric.
Finished Garment Measurement:
See chart in images.
Medium / Heavy weight knit fabrics with good drape and recovery. I’d recommend 220 GSM weight and above.
Look for opaque knits (ones that don’t go see through when you stretch them out)
30% stretch and above.
If you’re using stretch fabric with quite a high level of stretch (50% and above), you may need to go down a size.
Please note: If you’re using a patterned fabric with a repeat that you’d like to match, you may need more fabric than what is suggested above. Use your discretion.
Ensure your fabric is washed and pressed before cutting.
- Matching thread to your fabric.
- 1 inch / 2.5cm wide elastic : Size A - 52cm, B - 57cm, C - 62cm, D - 67cm, E - 72cm,
F- 77cm, G- 82cm, H -87cm, I - 92cm, J - 97cm, K - 102cm, L - 107cm, M - 112cm, N - 117cm
These elastic measurements are just a suggestion, you may want more or less.
*You can use elastic wider than 1 inch / 2.5cm. But I would not recommend using
anything thinner. Heavier knit fabrics need a stronger elastic.
