Fantail Skirt: Modern



Sizes 30-50

Difficulty: Intermediate  

The Modern Fantail skirt is a classic 5-gore, A-line skirt with a fan of sewn pleats that release at mid-hip at center back. It features a waistband that sits at the natural waist, an invisible back zip, and hook or button fastenings at the waist. The skirt ends just below the knee, and is hemmed with a bias-tape hem.

The skirt goes from casual, in light denims and chambrays, to dressy, in luxe prints and satins, with the fan of back pleats adding a interest and a bit of swishy fun in any fabric.

Buy a combined pattern with the Modern Fantail and its sister pattern, the Historical Fantail (1890-1910) here.

Recommended Fabrics:

The skirt works well in light-midweight fabric with moderate draping qualities, such as: craft cottons; chambrays, linens, midweight viscose (rayons), silk noil, and lighter wools.  Not recommended for obvious stripes or checks.
