Body Measurements

Finished Garment Measurements

Please note, the August Skirt is designed to sit approximately an inch below the smallest part of your waist and there is approximately 6-8cm wearers ease in the waistband.

Wearers ease is the amount of space between the body and the finished garment, and is primarily added for comfort. Typically bottoms patterns that are not form fitting and are designed for woven fabrics will have between 5-10cm ease.

We recommend careful consideration of the amount of ease in relation to the size you choose to make, as well as in relation to the fabric you intend to sew with. Heavier fabrics typically require more ease than lighterweight fabrics for comfort. Please check the body measurements against the finished garment measurements before choosing your size.

Fabric Yield Recommendations

Recommended Fabric + Supplies

Fabric
The August Skirt is designed for medium-heavy weight woven fabrics such as linen, cotton and wool. We love how this pattern looks and feels in our Heavyweight Linen! You could also try corduroy, denim, cotton canvas or a classic wool suiting.

Interfacing
Fusible interfacing is recommended for the waistband pieces. We recommend selecting a lightweight woven interfacing.

Bias Binding
The August Skirt features a bound interior waistband seam, so bias binding will be required. Depending on the size you choose, you will need up to 2m of bias binding.

Buttons + Zip
You will need one 23cm invisible zip and one 20mm button.

Thread
You will need at least one spool of thread for straight stitching, and 4 additional threads if you choose to overlock or serge the exposed interior seams.

Tools
The August Skirt can be completed with a regular domestic sewing machine, with zig zag stitch capability. If desired, you can finish/neaten interior exposed seams with an overlocker/serger.

You will also require an iron, a point turner, a sharp pair of sewing scissors and pins.
