Introducing the Shafira! Shafira is Swhaili for distinguished and it lives up to that name. This skirt will be a piece to stand out whether you need it for a formal event or just a skirt to run to the grocery store.
Shafira’s base is a knee length, empire waist pencil skirt. But it doesn’t stop there! With 3 flounce lengths, you’ll be able to have a head turning skirt wherever you go. If that’s not enough, the pencil skirt also comes in maxi length. The versatility is endless. The skirt has an invisible zipper on the back giving it that final tailored look. For a little more detail, add a sash but don’t worry, the loops will help it stay in place.
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s even a maternity option. The panel gives enough room and comfort for both mom and bump.
With Shafira, you will get that true denim pencil skirt you’ve been wanting. Or switch it up a fancier brocade to get a special occasion skirt. With all the stunning woven fabrics, only your imagination is the limit.

This pattern allows you to create a beautifully tailored piece you’ll reach for again and again. The empire waist is flattering on every shape and is a great way to sport a cropped or tied top with full coverage! The detailed construction comes together quickly for a finish unmatched by what you can find on most clothing racks. Fun to sew, fun to wear!

I was so thrilled to find a WOVEN pencil skirt that fits my curves so well!! I made two versions in a woven with about 25% horizontal stretch and they’re soooooo comfy, while looking super sassy! Beautifully drafted, super fun options for dressy or casual styles. Really like getting eight skirts in one pattern!

for the gal with curves, this skirt is so flattering. Dress it up with some shiny polished cotton or dress it down with some denim. Looks great with sneakers, stilettos or boots. I love that it is so versatile.

I love the possibilities that this skirt offers from everyday wear, to work wear, to formal elegance. The empire waist truly is flattering even if you’re like me and your waist and hips make a rectangle all the way down, I felt amazing wearing it . I can’t wait to wear these for the upcoming holidays!

Been looking for a skirt like this for awhile and this pattern went above and beyond expectations! The fit is amazing with woven like I haven’t seen before. The end result hugs your waist and hips with the perfect amount of room to be comfortable and mobile but also elegant and don’t be surprised if you look in the mirror and go “ooh girl!” because I did! I will definitely be making so many more, for casual to more formal events because of all the options available.

Amazing skirt probably one of the best fits I’ve had “out of the packet” as such. I love the fun options the skirt comes with too- the frills are a must!
Fabulas pattern, fun flounces, high waisted to accentuate my waist to give me an hour-glass shape. A real 50’s pin-up vibe, or long hippy skirt. Really versatile. I lined mine with black satin and had burgundy linen as the fashion fabric. I’ve already cut one out for my Christmas party! …Did I mention FAB-U-LAS!
