Skirt Pattern 1964
Multi-sized pattern includes sizes 8-18 

This pattern has two versions for those occasions you just want to whip up a quick skirt to go with a suit, and other times when the skirt is important. Neither skirt has a waistband. The quick version has a self-fabric facing at the top and can be lined or not. The second skirt has a center front slotted seam, drawing the eye to the center of the body. The back has four slimming panels. Every seam of this skirt works to flatter. This skirt has a faced yoke, with a one piece lining attached to the lower edge of the facing.

A Skirts Conversion Booklet, has been completed filling 36 pages with more than 25 different ways to make this pattern plus dozens of ideas for adding details to your skirts including adding kick pleats and a variety of waist finishes. One of the most popular of the patterns, it's easy and enlightening to use the booklet for copying any of your favorite ready-to-wear styles. $12.00


I spent the other day by recopoying my skirt patterns. They are all Nancy's but I have made a lot of style changes over the years(...from the newsletter). After losing weight two years ago I keep using the same pattern and then adjusting, finally I decided to redo the patterns so I can just cut fit and wear, it will be a lot easier.

I'm on a skirt binge now and have made three skirts with Nancy's pattern in
the last couple of weeks. .... oh you NEED the skirt pattern! And, the sheet
with all the changes.
