I never thought I’d be one of those people who make the same pattern over and over. Yet, if you look through my skirt-related posts, I have quite a few gored skirts on this here blog.
Yet, when I went through my closet to find things I haven’t posted yet, I realized just how many skirts I’ve made from Butterick 3134. Most are view C with the zipper in the back seam and the front pieces cut on a fold so that there’s no seam down the front.
I have a navy twill one.
And a light denim one. It has back pockets and black ribbon trim.
A plaid woven.
A lined orangish wool.
A brown brushed fabric with selvage trim.
And a dark denim with back pockets.
So, I really like this pattern. Its easy to alter, easy to change up, works with all sorts of fabrics, easy to trim, and just the right length for me. Waistband is optional. Hemming is easy.
