Goredskirt-a-long

I’m excited about the gored skirt sew-a-long. This is a wardrobe staple and will fit in with every vintage wardrobe. The gored skirt dates back to the 14th century and is much used in 19th century. Very popular in the late 1860s, mid-1890s, early 20th century, 1930s, 1940s, and now worn as a classic skirt style.  

The beauty of a gored skirt pattern is it is easier to add or remove panels or make them larger to fit your curves! You can also do a straight bottom, rounded panels or make a tulip shaped bottom! Many, many options.  The additional beauty of this sew-a-long is you can use a commercial pattern, your own pattern or self-draft the skirt. I’ve included links to both self-drafted or paid patterns information in our Facebook group.

This sew-a-long will run from September 15th to September 30th.

I have created an FAQ page with links and you will find it in the files over at our Killer Kitsch Vintage WIPs group. There is a variety of tutorials that are very easy to follow.
