With only 4 main pattern pieces (plus details like pockets and belt loops), you'll spend less time cutting and more time making. And because the cut is full, Zinnia only requires fitting in one place – the waist. So there are no tricky curves to get just right.
And once you make it once, you will definitely want more. Try version 1 in a chambray for summer, make a tartan skirt for autumn with version 2, or get dressy using chiffon and version 3, which includes instructions for lining.
Zinnia has plenty of features that you can feel free to interchange. You can switch out the in-seam or patch pockets, or use the belt loops on any version.
Version 1 is a gathered skirt that falls below the knee, with a button-front placket and patch pockets. Version 2 is pleated, hits above the knee for a shorter length, and includes belt loops and in-seam pockets. Version 3 is also pleated, falls below the knee, and is fully lined so that it can be made in sheer fabrics.
