PRIMA Pattern, November 2014 - 2 Skirt Styles

The November 2014 PRIMA Magazine pattern is available to order by phone until the end of this month. 

For November 2014, Prima Magazine are offering 2 styles of quick and easy skirts. A gathered skirt with a wide-yoke for a slim fit at the waist - with side-seam pockets, and can be made as a full-length maxi-skirt, or above the knee. The flared A-Line skirt can be made below the knee or in a midi skater-length.

The patterns as usual both come in Sizes 10 - 20 (UK).

Prima Magazine - Pattern, November 2014 (03)

When I looked at the copy of the pattern for the flared *A-Line skirt I thought that it looked much like the patterns you see for 'Circle Skirts'. And having measured it and done a little bit of maths, I've determined that it is indeed ⅓ Circle-Skirt pattern

See my old post here on tips for ordering their patterns: PRIMA Magazine: How to Order Their Sewing Patterns.
