The Voyager Skirt :: Star Wars Style | A New FREEBIE Circle Skirt Pattern, by Wild + Wanderful!

Apr 18, 2021

Did you hear the news that I announced yesterday??  I released two new sewing patterns — and they’re both free!!  I’m still riding a little bit of a high from the fun of putting something that I designed in my own space.  I know that a circle skirt isn’t anything new, but I put a little twist on it by making it accessible for woven fabrics, and omitting a need for a zipper.  Plus I did tons of math to get everything to work…so it’s worth tooting my own horn a bit, isn’t it??

The Voyager Skirt and The Little Voyager Skirt were designed with woven fabrics in mind.  That just means that you don’t need a stretch fabric to be able to make this skirt!  I HIGHLY recommend going by your full hip measurement to select your size, as the waist opening will need to be able to go over the widest part of your body.  If your waist falls into a smaller size, you can easily customize that by using a shorter elastic and cinching it perfectly to your waist.  Easy peasy!

I made this Voyager skirt with an apparel woven that I’d had printed for our anniversary party two years ago.  I got way more yardage than I needed, meaning I was happily able to turn it into a skirt to wear.  Bright colors, florals, and some Star Wars characters?  Obviously I love it!

If you compare this skirt to the one I shared yesterday, you can tell the difference between using an apparel woven with drape, and using a quilting cotton that’s more on the stiffer side.  Typically I’d tell you to use apparel wovens — but I actually like how the quilting cotton gives the skirt a bit more body.  But at the same time, i do love how this skirt lays against me too.  So maybe I’m team “use any fabric you want because they’re all awesome”.

Here’s some quick info on the features of the Voyager skirts:

  • Two hem lengths (above and below knee)
  • Full circle skirt.
  • Designed for woven (non-stretch) fabrics.
  • Elastic enclosed waistband.
  • Optional pockets.

With these downloads, you will receive an easy-to-print, color coded pattern with a NO TRIM page feature.  You will also be able to turn on/off layers so you can print only the size you need.  The zip file includes four print formats: Letter, A4, A0 (printshop), and Projector.

There is a full step-by-step color tutorial included, to help guide you through your skirt making process, as well as a detailed start-to-finish video tutorial.

ALSO.  Please follow me on Instagram so you stay up-to-date with my shenanigans.  I have a list of fun things, just like this, that I want to accomplish this year and it’d be a shame if you missed out on any of it.  Just saying.
