The Suffragette Day Skirt recalls


the elegant yet practical style that
Lady Sybil wore in Episode 6 of
Season 1 when she attended the
political rally with Tom Branson to
protest for womens right to vote.
Pair it with the Suffragette Day
Blouse, featuring contrast bands
at the waist, neck, and sleeve.
This wardrobe staple transcends
the decades with timeless clean
lines and a flattering shape.

Getting Started Basic techniques and terms

XL

youll need to know for the pattern you have


downloaded.

Cutting lines Multisize


patterns have different cutting
lines for each size.

Place on fold bracket This is


a grainline marking with arrows pointing
to the edge of the pattern. Place on the
ASYMMETRICAL
FOLDS
fold of the fabric
so that SKIRT
your finished
RIGHT
FRONT
piece will be twice the size of the pattern
2 XXxx
piece,cut
without
adding a seam.
L

XL

Grainline The double-ended arrow


should be parallel to the lengthwise
grain or fold unless specifically marked
as crosswise. Bias grainlines will be
diagonal.

Darts Dashed lines and dots mark


darts. The dashed lines show where the
stitching will be, and the dot shows the
position of the dart point (signaling the
point, at the end of the dart, where your
stitching should end).

pattern dots Filled circles indicate


that a mark needs to be made (often on
the right side of the fabric) for placement
of elements such as a pocket or a dart
point. Mark by punching through the pattern paper only, then mark on the fabric
cut on fold
through the hole.
Slash Marks A dashed line (sometimes appearing with pattern dots)
indicates an area to be slashed. Further
instructions for making the slash will be
included in the pattern instructions.

cut on fold

Find the lines that correspond to your size and trace


the pattern pieces, either on tissue paper or directly onto
the fabric, using tracing paper and a tracing wheel.
2 If you are cutting pattern pieces on the fold or cutting
the same pattern piece, fold the fabric in half,
cut two
on of
fold
selvedge to selvedge, with right sides together. Note that this
technique is not appropriate for some fabrics so check the
project instructions if you are unsure.
3 Lay the pattern pieces on the fabric as close together
as possible. Double-check that all pattern pieces to be
cut on the fold are placed on the fold.
4 Make sure all pattern pieces are placed on the fabric
with the grainline running parallel to the lengthwise grain unless
a crosswise or bias grainline is present.
5 Copy all pattern markings onto the wrong side of the fabric
unless otherwise noted.
6 Read through all cutting instructions listed in the project
instructions for directions on how many pattern pieces to
cut out of your fabric and interfacing.
7 Use weights to hold the pattern pieces down and use
pins to secure the corners as needed.
8 Cut the pieces slowly and carefully.

Notches Notches are triangleshaped symbols used for accurately


matching seams. Pieces to be joined will
have corresponding notches.

When preparcut on fold


ing to print the pdf,
make sure that you are
printing it at 100% and
that there is no scaling.
Check the settings for
page scaling (should be
None) and check the
2" 2"
preview to make sure
that you will be printing
at full size. Make sure
that the box labeled
Auto-Rotate and
Center is unchecked
(instructions apply specifically to Adobe Reader; if using
another pdf reader, check for similar settings).
2 To ensure that the pattern has printed at the correct scale,
check the size of the TEST SQUARE. The Test Square
should be 2" 2".
3 To begin assembling the pattern, cut off or fold the dotted
margin around each page.
4 The pages are numbered in rows, so the first row of pages
is numbered
1a, 1b, 1c, etc. Line up FOLDS
the rows andSKIRT
match the
ASYMMETRICAL
dotted lines together so they
overlap.
Tape
the
pages
together.
RIGHT FRONT
Use the illustrated guide to match each piece. Once the pattern
cut 2 XXxx
is complete, find your size, pin the pattern to the fabric, and follow the coordinating line to cut out or trace the pattern.
