The Gypsum Skirt is the fraternal twin of the Arenite Pants - same ridiculously comfortable waistband and drapey pockets, more flounce. Layer it under or over dresses, wear it with a boxy top or cami, and shorten or lengthen the pattern depending on the season.

View A has unique, crescent-shaped pockets and instructions for French-seamed pockets and flat-felled seam finishes of the four skirt panels. View B is the perfect introduction to garment sewing (or just a quick sew) with the same shape as View A, but sporting only two panels and inserted, side seam pockets.

Difficulty: Advanced Beginner

Suggested Fabric: The Gypsum Skirt is designed for woven fabrics. For View A, look for rayon challis, tencel twill, silk noil, or other fabric with fantastic drape. View B can handle a slightly stiffer woven fabric in addition to those recommended for View A. Good possibilities include mid-weight linen, double gauze, cotton ikats, and lightweight denim.

Notions: 2" Elastic

Size: 0-24

Sew Liberated began in a drafty adobe house on a street without a name in rural northern Mexico. The year was 2006, and Meg McElwee was working as a Montessori teacher in a one-room schoolhouse. With no internet, television, or phone line, Meg spent much of her time honing her sewing and pattern drafting skills. Eventually, she started a blog and began selling patterns based on her designs. Sew Liberated was one of the first indie pattern companies to emerge from the crafting renaissance, and hopes to remain a small, friendly, and fashion-forward presence in the indie designer community. Over the years, Sew Liberated has evolved to focus on slow fashion, sustainable practices, and mentoring women to look at their sewing as a practice of self-care. We truly believe that the act of making one’s own clothes is a transformative act both personally and on a global scale, as long it is done through the lens of sustainable fashion.

Please note that our online shop currently only sells fabric, elastic, and other products that are cut to measure in full metres. Its a Shopify thing and as soon as we find an awesome workaround you can count on us to make that magic happen. 

Buying fabric? Measure twice so that we can cut once! Review your pattern. Check the unit of measure (we go by meters). Add a bit of length to factor in shrinkage during prewashing. 

Buying patterns? Pattern size ranges can vary depending on the pattern, designer, and style. Review the pattern closely before purchase and check your own measurements against the pattern specifications.

Picking colours? RICK RACK does our best to accurately represent all products and colours but colours may appear different between device screens.
