ROMA Midi Skirt - PDF DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
This modern, minimalist pencil skirt gently hugs your hips, yet allows for free movement thanks to the rounded side slit. ROMA will be the skirt you pair with a white button-down blouse and black heels when you want to feel put together and powerful. But it'll also be the skirt you pair with a simple tank or T, sandals and a tote as you stroll through the markets of Rome.
In order to get a fit similar to the photo, choose a pattern size that is 2 to 3 cm (3/4" to 1-1/4") wider than your own full hip (the widest point of your hips, around your bum) measurement.
Light- or medium weight denim(like) wovens are best for midi-skirt ROMA. These offer a good, sturdy structure no matter the weight, but also with a bit of give so that you can move easily. If you choose to work with a fabric with stretch (knits), then a tighter stretch, such as stretch denim or a heavier weight interlock, is best. These fabrics will hold their form better than lighter weight, super stretchy fabrics. Depending on the stretch, you will need to go down a (partial) size.
+ 2"/5cm wide elastic band the length of your natural waist + 1.25"/3cm

Beginner + ....but still fun (and quick!) for intermediate or advanced sewists.

My name is Meghann Halfmoon. I am the designer and creator behind the sewing pattern label HALFMOON ATELIER. I believe that simple design and simple choices can have a big impact: on the way we feel, on the way we live and on the world! However, choosing fashionable, socially conscious products is still harder than it should be. I can help make it easier.
Well-made foundation pieces help simplify our lives. We need less, but they add more to our closet and leave us feeling polished and put together for all occasions. We can also have a positive influence on the world by choosing to sew with sustainably and ethically made fabrics. By using ethically sourced fabric, we are helping the people – mainly women – who create our textiles. It’s just a drop in the bucket, but that bucket is full of millions of little drops.
My mission is to design simple, unique sewing patterns and facilitate sewists to source sustainable, ethical, organic and fair trade fabric as a small step toward my vision of a world in which sustainable, ethical production is simply standard.
