Barkly skirt

Regular price $22.00

Garment details

The Barkly skirt is a panelled A-line skirt with pockets and a range of interesting and fun to sew details. It has been designed to be worn all year round - in summer in soft linens with sandals and in winter in denim with tights and boots.

View A sits on the natural waist (the top of the waistband will sit just above the natural waist) and features a shaped waistband, slanted pockets that are inset in the side panels and a hem facing.

View B sits just below the natural waist (as it features a waist facing, rather than a waistband), has patch pockets (which are therefore optional), and side splits in the hem.

Both styles feature a centre back invisible zip for a clean finish.

Styles can be mixed and matched so that you can combine your style preferences. More information can be found in the STYLE VARIATION KIT.

This pattern is available in our new extended size range. More details about In the Folds sizing can be found here

This pattern is also available as a bundle with the Barkly skirt Fit Kit and Barkly skirt Hack Kit

Difficulty

The pattern is placed at a Level 2 on the In the Folds pattern skill scale, and has been designed for advanced beginners and beyond. Through careful drafting and beautiful finishing techniques, this pattern will have you feeling very proud of both the inside and outside of your garment. 

By working through this pattern, you will gain confidence in: sewing curved seams, sewing pockets, sewing an invisible zip, sewing a waistband or waist facing (depending on the variation you choose to make) and working with interfacing.

      Lovely pattern

      Great pattern, beautifully constructed and easy to follow. I am so pleased with the results and as it is so versatile I plan to make again with a different weight fabric.

      Thank you Rach! We are so happy to hear this.

      Super-flattering, easily adaptable

      I've already gotten tons of compliments on this skirt, I've now made two versions of it. And *pockets* yay!
      I combined the waist facing of View B with the length and styling of View A and that small hack was made easier by how well-designed the pattern pieces are, everything works together so well. I especially like that you can print just the layers you want from the PDF, which simplifies the cutting a lot.
      The instructions are easy to follow, breaks it down to every small step. I found it helped a lot to make a toile version first to check the fit and practice setting in the zipper and turning the waistband which I found to be the hardest part. I look forward to making many other versions, maybe one with a lining next time.

      Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Tona! We are so pleased our Barkly skirt is getting so much love. Happy sewing!

      Beautiful Barkly

      A beautifully designed and drafted pattern. Clear instructions, notches that match, super easy pockets and a curved waistband. I loved making and I love wearing this skirt. My wearable toile is a very well worn toile. I think this is the perfect template for many variations and I’m looking forward to trying some.

      So glad you love this pattern so much, Andrea! And a well-worn toile is music to our sustainable sewing loving ears!

      Perfect and precise

      I'm really happy with this pattern. The fit was perfect for me. Also the whole thing went together so precisely-- and the instructions/ illustrations we're great. I look forward to making this again!!

      Love this skirt!

      I’ve just made my first (of many I’m sure) Barkly skirt and it’s an excellent pattern. Really good size pockets, lots of options for feature top stitching and the style variation kit looks so good to mix and match the views for so many options. Great instructions from Emily as usual. I did some grading according to my measurements and the fit was really good. 😀
