Trumpet Skirt Pattern

Back to « Patterns

Line drawing of Trumpet skirt and the three pattern pieces used in construction of the skirt

The long graceful lines of the Trumpet Skirt are flattering to any figure. Only three pattern pieces - the panel, the godet, and the waistband are needed to make this comfortable, pleasing, and very wearable skirt.

Pattern Package Includes:

Suggested Fabric

Light or medium weight cotton or silk fabric is recommended. If choosing a border ikat fabric, a fairly small motif works best. Or for added interest, alternate different fabrics in each panel of the trumpet skirt.


1" wide elastic for waistband (Large-33" /Medium 29"/Small-25"), thread to match.

Finished Garment Size

Length of skirt is 35". You may lengthen or shorten the panels at any point. Select a size which allows at least 2" of ease around the hips.

(You may increase or decrease the size by adding or subtracting from the width of the panels. For example, for Extra Large adding 1/4" to each Large size panel increases the size two inches. For extra small, subtract 1/2" from each small-sized panel and reduce the hip size by 4")

Yardage Requirements**

The above measurements are estimates and do not include changes for pattern alterations, matching designs, or directional fabrics.
