The Annie A-line skirt is a perfect pattern for the beginner or novice sewer. It is a simple A-line skirt with a back zipper and an easy faced waistline. The A-line skirt is probably the most flattering style for most women. It works well on figures with small waists in proportion to hips, creates an illusion of a waist on boy figures and is the perfect style for full hipped figures.


This free A-line Skirt pattern comes in sizes 6-16 (Australian standards). There is no waistband, so super easy and it is the perfect project to learn how to insert an invisible zipper. You can play around and add pockets, shorten it, lengthen it make it your own. There are so many gorgeous fabrics out there you can choose from, bright florals, denim , animal prints even a tartan!

    Hi! This is the first thing I’ve made for myself. I was given a sewing machine for my birthday in March and started with sewing face masks and another essential item that we call pandemic lounge pants (pajama bottoms in the time of COVID)! I have never done any of the following: inserted a zipper, used bias tape, used interfacing, created waist facings, inserted darts. So first of all thank you for the sewing lesson! Second, yes there are a few mistakes/learning opportunities but hopefully not apparent to anyone but me. The skirt actually fits and looks well-constructed. I am relatively tall and lean and opted for size 12 mainly because I don’t like skirts at my waist (I’m a size 6 or 8 usually here in the US). I tend to wear a little lower at my hips but not truly low rise. I did end up having to take it in at the side seams as it was too big below where I wanted it to sit below waist. So I’m probably size 10 or even 8 below the waist of the skirt which needs to be a size 12 to sit closer to my hips. Either way, it was really fun. I did have to consult a few other tutorials as I didn’t fully understand directions. So for those of you who are dead beginners, I recommend supplementing instructions with videos on youtube especially for inserting zipper and bias tape.

    Thank you so much! I think this is one of only about two things I’ve sewed that I felt happy with and and feel like I will wear again. Instructions were awesome and the pictures very helpful (I was a little confused with the facing around the zipper part but it still turned out O.K.). Really appreciate you sharing this pattern. Thanks.

    I’ve never made anything with darts or a waistband before as I only just started sewing. Never made clothes. Only a couple of bags with zips. I took ages to make this because I was trying to work everything out but my skirt turned out awesome. I originally made the size 12 but it was too big so I took it in and ended up with size 8 instead. So I’m making another one today and I want to make it longer as well so I can sit down comfortably as I’m quite tall. I need to learn how to measure myself properly so I make the right size. Thanks for the pattern. I think I will make a dozen of them. I love it. I think I’m addicted to sewing now.

      Hi Janice, Thanks for your review. I have a Youtube lesson on measuring yourself it you want to check it out. One of the most important lessons to learn with sewing is how to measure yourself correctly before cutting your pattern.
      Thanks! Annie

      Thanks Jayne,

      I’m always happy to hear great feedback. I teach with this pattern and it always fits perfectly each time with a few alterations depending
      on size of student.

      Thanks again.
