This Utility Skirt kit is for those of you who want an easy sew with brilliant results. You can make this skirt in a couple of hours and wear it straight away – that’s exactly how my passion for sewing started in the ‘80s.


It has an elasticated waistband so it’s really comfy and between the small, medium and large this skirt will fit EVERYONE. I wear mine slightly low waisted with a little T-shirt but you could synch it in high waisted and chuck a sweatshirt on. The choice, of course, is all yours.


It’s called ‘utility’ because it’s simple, versatile and very wearable, and because I made my one out of some fabric in my mum’s stash that was old lab coat fabric. Proper workwear!


The 3 pleats take the fullness out to make a flattering, flouncy yet formal little skirt.


Use the step-by-step video tutorial to make this at home or come along to the DOLLY studio and we'll make it together.
