Barkly skirt pattern

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.


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.

Please note: at this stage, the Barkly skirt pattern is only available in PDF format.
