Let’s get started!

Free Skater Skirt Pattern Materials:

    • 1/2 yard light-mid weight knit: jersey, interlock, cotton lycra, etc.

Print out your pattern at 100% Check the 1″ scale box to make sure it printed correctly. Trim your pattern and tape together along the dashed lines. Piece 1 goes on top, followed by piece 2 and piece 3 is off to the right. Use a 1/2″ seam allowance.

1. With right sides together (RST) sew the short ends of the waistband together.


2. Bring the long edges of the waistband together so wrong sides are now together and your waistband tube is double thickness

3. With RST sew the skirt side seams together

4. Mark the waistline and waistband off in quarters. Match up the marked points stretching the waistband to fit. Sew together

5. Knit fabric doesn’t fray so you can just leave the hem raw, do a rolled or lettuce hem on your serger or fold it up 1/2″ and topstitchIMG_4927

And that’s it! Put it on a happy kid and sew lots more 🙂 Be sure to check out our other Free Sewing Tutorials at Peek-a-Boo Pages and join our sewing community in our Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop Facebook Group.

  1. I’m a brand new sewist with only a regular machine (no serger). I used a zigzag stitch and it turned out great! My question is, how to deal with the bulkiness around the waist where the waistband meets the skirt? Thank you.

  2. Hello, just printed out the free pattern — thank you very much. I have just one question: Does “use a 1/2 inch seam allowance” mean that it is indluded or am i supposed to add it to the pattern? Thanks and happy Easter Break!

  3. I joined the group via email and Facebook. Is the adorable free skater skirt in sizes up to 12 no longer available?t Thanks.

    1. At the top of the post it says the skirt is available in size 5 for free if another size is needed a link is posted to purchase pattern. I will say it is worth every penny and it makes the most adorable skirt.

  4. Thank you for sharing this pattern. I modified it to fit my 2 year old and it looks great on her! So cute. I will use one of your skort patterns to make matching inside shorts to go underneath.

  5. purchased half yard of 45″ wide skirt fabric and cannot figure out how to place pattern on fabric so I can cut two pieces on the fold. Help, please.

  6. Am I missing a piece of information here. What size do you cut the waistband, surely you do not use the 60inches wide? What height and what width please

    1. never mind, I finally saw it on pattern piece, so sorry for the request when it was right in front of me. I love the pattern by the way. I am making 10 for Angels Fostering Network in OK and have challenged any of my sewing FB friends to join me. Got the skirt pieces cut out today!!! half way there!

      1. Thanks for asking the question and then telling me where to find the answer. I looked and looked and then I read what you wrote. Problem solved, Thanks!

  7. Thank You so much for this. Is there a short pattern that I could purchase to add for privacy. I have 2 grand daughters who forget they have skirts/dresses on and modesty is priority to us.

  8. This is so awesome! We are s foster home and this is such a great thing to support the foster home community! Thank you so much!

  9. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! My daughter is going to be so excited to wear some new skirts!
