Free pattern for a skirt from the “inspiration” (only in April)

It continues with the free patterns from the “inspiration”. This month we offer you the pattern for the skirt “Jenny”.

Like last time with the blouson it is time to be fast again! The pattern will be available until the end of this month (April 30, 2020). The download link to the pattern can be found further down in the article. 

With the swinging skirt you will add a touch of the 50s into your wardrobe! You can vary the cut as you like. If you widen the arc at the hem, the skirt gets more width, which is especially suitable for very light fabrics. If the hem is cut narrower, the pattern is also suitable for heavier wool fabrics.

The circle skirt is from the 2016 inspiration Special and in the magazine it was combined with a basic top:

Here is the cover of the magazine – with a different skirt model: 

In the “inspiration Special 2016”, summer sewing projects were presented which can be realised without pattern. Luckily, many cuts can be easily put down on paper with a ruler and tape measure. The magazine included a small box drawings as template. 

An exception is the skirt, for which we now give you the pattern for free. But also this pattern is quite simple. Enjoy it!

Extract ZIP file with pattern

Usually, download files are automatically loaded into the downloads folder, but this depends on the operating system, the device used and your local settings. If you download with your smartphone and cannot find or unzip the file, please try with a desktop computer.

… and another free download: Blouse shirt

In addition to the “Jenny” skirt, two blouse shirts were shown in the inspiration Special 2016, one short-sleeved and one long-sleeved model. A light, flowing fabric was chosen for the short sleeve blouse. A pleat in the upper front part stretches the look:

The pattern for both blouse models can be downloaded from the BERNINA website for free – with no time limit. Here is the link: Download pattern blouse shirt. The relevant instructions can be found in the magazine.

Maybe you would like to combine the shirt with the skirt?  

Have fun and success with sewing!

      Hi Jean,

      Unfortunately the instruction for the blouse is not available for free. The inspiration Special 2016 including the blouse can be ordered online.

      Best regards,
