This skirt has the option of three lengths: Walking or ankle length, short train of 6 inches and long train of 12 inches. The skirt can be 1890s or modern. It has 5 gores with seam at side front, side back, and center back. The back panels are pleated.
The back opening has a period placket for hooks and eyes or buttons or can be closed with a zipper for modern. The optional lining is sewn to the skirt with the flat-lining method or can be attached just at the waist (no instructions for this option). The hem is faced with 6" fitted facings which provide strength and keep the hem away from the ankles as well as protect the hem.
The skirt has a waistband and a single optional pocket which is hidden in the left or right back side seam. All lengths have a walking length of the ankle in the front. The back can be ankle length, or with a short train, or a longer train. The trained lengths are suitable for formal, evening, or bridal wear. There are layouts and yardages provided for making the skirt without the hem facings if desired for economy of fabric or a shorter modern length.
This pattern goes well with Laughing Moon 103 Waist.
