The Mirambell skirt pattern

Let’s start with the Mirambell skirt.

It’s a retro inspired skirt pattern, with knife pleats and two lengths. The knife pleats are topstitched from the waist to the hips to highlight the body curves, then open to a full hem. With its high waistline, the Mirambell skirt hugs the hips while being really comfortable.

 

The shaped waistband and pockets bring original details to the skirt design. You can also play with topstitching here, it can be either with matching or contrasting thread and it will showcase the curved shapes nicely.

You’ll find two views for the Mirambell pattern. View A closes with an invisible back zipper and is short (above the knee). As for view B, it buttons on the front and is knee-length.

 

It’s recommended to choose lightweight fabrics for the Mirambell skirt: cotton, linen, rayon, crepe, chambray… and why not use a gabardine or light wool for a winter version? You’ll also need lining for the pockets (cotton woul be perfect but you can also choose bemberg) and interfacing for the waistband. For view A, you’ll need a 30 cm (12”) invisible zipper and for view B, 8 buttons of approximately 2,5 cm (1”) wide.

Note: for the presentation models, we have used a curry crepe rayon for view A and an off-white linen for view B.

 

Here’s a very elegant skirt that will be perfect for the summer (and all year round).

You can find the Mirambell skirt in the shop in both printed and PDF version.

THE NEW SUMMER PATTERNS ARE HERE!

For this new pattern collection, I wanted to go back to the beginning. The style of the Pauline Alice patterns has been changing since they first came out, the main reason being that I design patterns according to what I feel like wearing at the moment, but I’d like to think that they have the same references. And for this summer, feminity is back, with the same care about details and designs inspired by the past but still completely actual.

 

I’m very happy to present you the Mirambell Skirt and the Lliria Dress!
