A-Frame is a pencil or a-line skirt inspired by the iconic A-Frame house. Popular in the 50's and 60's, the A-Frame embodies the DIY spirit, the love of the outdoors, and the modern aesthetic.


Version 1 is a straight pencil skirt that features a kick pleat at the center back seam.

Version 2 is a swingy A-line skirt with a front panel that can be cut on the straight grain or the bias.

Both versions feature triangular seaming, substantial pockets, a center back zipper, and buttoned waistband. The skirt sits at the natural waist and ends just below the knee.

This pattern comes with a Fit Guide that includes alteration instructions. The PDF includes all sizes A-P (see size information here). The PDF contains both Letter/A4 and Copyshop/A0 format files.
