Patterns for Life - Zinnia Skirt by Colette Patterns

We have another incredibly versatile pattern to share with you today! The Zinnia Skirt is the very most recent design from Colette Patterns and I have to say, this is another one of those designs that lives up to "perfect pattern" status!
This skirt nips in at the natural waist then flows gently out over the hip and thigh area. That means it only requires one measurement to achieve a great fit – the waistline! Since the narrowest part on a woman's torso is the natural waistline, you'll be highlighting your curves creating a flattering silhouette for any body shape! 

Every version and every size of Zinnia can be made with less than 3 yards of fabric. And how often are you able to use heavy, swishy or slinky fabric for the same pattern? By offering both a pleated and a gathered waist, Zinnia can be created from nearly any fabric in your stash! This pleated version is just fabulous for a work staple!
That also means you can modify it to suit any kind of weather. You’ll soon have a whole collection of seasonal separates, from pleated wool or Flannel for winter to gathered Voile for spring!

LOVE the look of the chiffon in the gathered waist version! Such a pretty look for special occasions! Especially when paired with a top boasting lots of texture like that sweater above! Swoon!

" has pockets!"
Said every single girl who gets complimented on her skirt or dress with pockets! Why? Because they're straight up AMAZING and USEFUL and LOVELY!! And why don't ALL dresses and skirts have pockets?? I mean, pockets are just about one of the top 15 best things in life and Zinnia has lots of pocket options to add to this already versatile design! Add that button placket and GET OUTTA won't be able to buy a cuter skirt!
So pick up your copy of this wonderful pattern today! And shop the rest of our Colette Patterns for even more perfect Patterns for (real) Life!
