Parks Skirt: Maker Information

Sizing

The Parks Skirt is a circle skirt - fitted at the waist with lots of ease at the hip and throughout the length of the skirt.

We recommend that you choose your size from the Body Measurements chart, based on your waist measurement. The pattern instructions show you how to adjust the waist sizing on the paper pattern to suit your measurements, if you are in between sizes.

All measurements are given in inches.
