Fabulous Free Pattern Friday

I'm back, I'm back, I'm back and it's even Friday!!!!!!
The pattern I'm sharing today is once again super simple, just 4 rectangles. Is it a skirt, a culotte or both? Who knows, so let's call it a skulotte!
 The piece has a lovely side drape.
Here you can see that there is a small semi crotch, very small and very semi.
Laying flat you can see that there are just 4 rectangles.
 You will need;
1. Your hip measurement
2. Your desired length measurement
3. Your waist measurement
If your hip measurement is 40" add 2" for ease. Divide this measurement in half which will be 21". Draw a rectangle 21" wide by your desired length.
To add the side drape, divide your hip measurement by 4, 40"divided by 4 is 10". Add 10" on either side of the rectangle.
The dashed line in the picture above represents the cutting line as the pattern will need to be cut in half once the crotch has been added.
For my crotch seam, I measured up the center line 9". On either side of the center line at the hem, I measured over 4".
Connect  the points.
The final pattern. The front will be the same as the back. Add seam allowances. There is a notch for the waist opening. If your waist measurement is 27", add 1" for ease. Divide this number by 4, 28" divided by 4 and the result will be 7". Measure over from center front 7" and place the notch.
I made my "skulotte" out of a woven fabric so I added a zipper to center back.
As I said, it was super simple to make and it's easy to wear!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!!
Rhonda
