1910-1919 Sewing Challenge | Edith Skirt

I made this skirt for two reasons. First, to sell on etsy. Second, to submit in A Lemon Squeezy Home's Sew Through The Decades challenge. During this challenge you try to sew something from a different decade each week (this week is 1910-1919). I'm hoping to sew something from every era. The challenge covers from 1900 to 2010. Let's see if I can do it. =)


When I think of the 1910's layered skirts come to mind, as do hobble skirts. =) As this is what first came to my mind, I decided to draft a modern version of the 1910's skirts. Which you don't need to hobble in.  ;-)

::My Version::

Pattern: Drafted by me.  

Pattern Description: Ladies skirt inspired from 1910-1919 skirts.

Pattern Sizing: I made it in a size 10 (28" Waist 38 1/2" Hips).

Fabric Used: The polka-dot fabric is from Joann Fabrics. While the rose print fabric is from Hancock Fabrics. 

Would you sew it again? Yes! I love the style and it was easy to sew. Plus it has a elastic waist, which means no zipper.



  1. Oh, wow... that skirt is gorgeous, Ashley!!! You did an amazing job. I'm really bad at drafting patterns... its just not something that comes naturally for me. But you, my friend... are definitely quite talented! :-)

    ~ Love,
