Gore Skirt

I did make up a skirt from the linen blend fabric - it was just the right weight for a gore skirt. My favourite pattern - Kwik Sew 2956.
I doubt I will wear the top and skirt together unless I have a white sweater or jacket over top, it just seems too much print to my eye.
Instead, I will wear the skirt (today anyway) with this 100% linen blouse that I made last summer from Peggy Sagers Classic Blouse pattern. This is another favourite pattern of mine, so easy to construct with Peggy's factory methods for the facings and buttonhole placket.

I am now working on a linen dress from Simplicity 2938 and hope to finish it up later today.


  1. Great skirt! I'm just getting started with Peggy Sagers patterns, so am interested in how her patterns rate among sewists.

  2. Perfect fabric for this pattern!
