Imagine gnats - Alder Skirt

The lovely Rachael behind Imagine Gnats is a blogger, pattern designer and extremely knowledgable sewist with a great eye for shape and construction and a helpful leaning towards simplicity.  Be sure to check out her blog for bookmark worthy information on different types of fabric like chambray, double gauze and knits (beautiful fabric options available here or coming soon). It's like a reference library written by your craftiest friend.

As for her patterns, I love how she can take a silhouette and make it work for lots of body types in a single pattern. The Alder Skirt is a classic A-line skirt with "generous pockets and an easy-going style" the combination of strategic pleating and darts makes this flattering and pretty.

Note - Rachael suggests that because this skirt sits a little lower on the hips, defer to hip measurements when determining your size.

Fabric Requirements - This pattern is designed to be made with non-stretch materials, and works well in a variety of woven fabrics, such as quilting cotton, voile, cotton lawn, shot cotton, chambray, linen, double gauze, denim, or light-weight canvas.

You will also need woven interfacing (either sew-in or fusible) and elastic see below.
