$5.97 $7.95

Video Tutorial A: Rectangle Skirt + Long Sleeve with Cuff Option

Video Tutorial B: Circle Skirt + Short Sleeve


Sometimes patterns with a lot of options can be overwhelming. That's why Rain City breaks down the options into bite size mini tutorials. Once you understand how each option is sewn you're able to mix and match the options in so many ways you may never need another pattern.

The Essential Set includes all options needed for a basic dress or peplum (see variations below)!

In the Essential Set you get a set of three skirts in dress length and a set of three in peplum length. The three different skirts are full circle, 1/4 circle and rectangle. You essentially get every skirt option to accommodate for how much or how little fabric you have. All that in one pattern is why I named it The Essential Set 😘 I hope it becomes your go-to, too 😊
