All files are PDF files that can be printed at home on Letter or A4 sized paper. Each pattern includes one file for the pattern and print-at-home pieces, and another file containing the copy shop A0 (33.1″ wide) pattern pieces. We’ve placed the pattern pieces on individual layers so you can print only the size(s) you need, saving you on paper and ink.
The Treasure Hunt Skirt has a variety of fabric options that will work depending on the style you are making. For the more flow A-line options, lighter weight fabrics such as Double Brushed Poly and ITY with 50% horizontal stretch and at least 30% vertical stretch will work. For the Pencil skirts and the pleated skirts, you will want something with a heavier weight such as Ponte, Scuba, or Liverpool knits with at least 50% horizontal and 30% vertical stretch. For the waistband, you will want a knit fabric with 50% 4-way stretch and great recovery to be sure it stays where it’s supposed to be.
