This pattern for the basic straight skirt with two front darts and two back darts allows you a direct usage of the outline to either make the skirt as it is or adapt it to your own creative ideas. Available from size 8 to 20 (UK sizes), the pattern covers the basic shapes of this model. The front and back are represented without seam allowances to facilitate the transformation process if you wish to adapt your model. Certain elements, for example the lining, have not been supplied because they will depend on how you wish to transform the skirt and so can be added later when you have transformed the basic according to your desires. This base pattern skirt has two front darts and two back darts and is constructed from the waist, using the measurements of the future wearer. The aim here is not to provide a ready-made pattern but to help you save a lot of time by supplying a base that is already constructed to which you can adapt your creative ideas.
