Long skirts will be sticking around on the fashion scene for this season too. Dixie has facing and a long row of buttons down the front of the skirt to close it. The skirt also features convenient side pockets. Not the biggest fan of long ankle length skirts? No problem. You can easily play with the length of the pattern, turning it into a trendy calf length skirt or perhaps something a touch shorter. Knee length is also an option. You can find out all about the right length for your body shape here

Fabric advice

The Dixie skirt can be sewn in a fabric with a fluid drape, such as a crepe (made of viscose, polyester or wool), or in a stiff fabric, such as a cotton (double gauze, poplin, cotton satin, stretch cotton, denim, etc.) or a mix with cotton, linen, etc . The fabric choice will determine whether your Dixie will be a graceful, airy skirt, or more of a ‘statement’ skirt. Curvy figures should go for fabrics with a fluid drape, in contrast with straight body shapes that look nicer in stiffer fabrics. When it comes to prints you can also take it in any direction: stripes, a floral or check pattern or a plain fabric in a spicy, warm colour or a shade of pastel.
