The Azara skirt was inspired by the 70s trend that has taken over the podiums this year! Sublty flared, this flattering midi skirt is modernized by geometric design lines typical of the Deer&Doe style. This is a versatile shape that will work perfectly made out of a beautiful lightweight wool or even a very supple leather, as well as a batist or a chambray for the late summer.
Azara is a high-waisted skirt with a midi length (aboved the knee) and a lining. It offers two versions: version A is buttoned in the front, and version B is closed by an invisible zipper and a button in the back.
This pattern is a level 4/5, with many details that experienced sewists will enjoy! Angled design lines, lining, hand-sewn hem… For more comfort, the waistband is reinforced with twill tape instead of iron-on interfacing: a new technique to discover!
To make sure that your Azara skirt is a success, choose a fabric with enough drape: light wool crepe, rayon twill, loosely woven chambray… Use rayon, silk, or polyester lining fabric for the lining, or skip the lining entirely if you want to wear it without tights in a more summery version.

J! Love the skirt pattern. Can’t wait to make it in dark grey light wool, but would really love it in leather. And the Givre dress will probably be for my daughter, although I fancy a T-shirt of it for myself. Lovely jubbly.
