Althea is a sewing pattern for an A-line skirt with an integrated elasticated waistband with pockets (because every skirt needs pockets)! It an easy sew with only two pattern pieces. This makes it perfect for beginners whether you are new to sewing, new to African wax prints or both! For more experienced sewers, you'll be able to complete this project in an hour or so. Pattern matching can be tricky when sewing with wax prints, however, the small number of pattern pieces makes pattern matching a breeze.
This skirt has no darts or zips. It has a gathered effect at the waistband. The pattern includes lengthening and shortening lines allowing you to adjust the finished hem to the length of your choice.
This is a digital pattern which you can print and assemble at home, or you have can have your A0 pattern printed using a professional printing service. If printing at home, use ADOBE or READER and choose the POSTER setting. This pattern will then be printed on several A4 sheets which you can cut and stick together.
Once you have made one, you'll be knocking this pattern out in your favourite wax prints in no time!
