Make a Godet Skirt: Haxby Skirt
With Becca

Class Overview

The Haxby Skirt is bound to be your new go-to party skirt. With three lengths and two different waistlines (on the natural waist and above the waist), you can make a multitude of looks from just one pattern. The eight godet panels in the Haxby Skirt make it the ultimate in twirling and make it the perfect canvas for a gorgeous lightweight fabric.

Whilst you sew up the Haxby Skirt with Becca, you’ll learn everything there is to know about handling and inserting godets. Use our technique of sewing up godets and you’ll get the crispest points to your sewing! Along the way, we’ll also be talking about constructing and attaching a facing, inserting an invisible zip and how to level a hem (a technique that’s a must in this project!).

Fabric Suggestions

The Haxby Skirt really suits a fabric with a decent amount of drape. You’ll want a woven fabric such as a crepe or a viscose, or even a chiffon for those who are feeling adventurous! This pattern is a great base for showing off a print – just imagine how stunning those panels would look in a stripe!

Fabric Requirements

The Haxby Skirt PDF sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 8-20. You can find the fabric requirements for the Haxby Skirt here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

This project includes:

  • printable pattern (in both tiled print-at-home and copyshop format)
  • fully-illustrated printable instruction booklet
  • imperial/metric conversion size chart
  • copyshop permission letter

So what is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home. Simply download, print, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
