Hi all! I've been wanting to make a skort (or 2 or 3) for summer, but haven't been able to find a plus size pattern. Does anybody know of any? I'm thinking probably at least one out of a cotton/spandex type fabric, and perhaps another out of a stretch lightweight denim.

Any ideas?

How about the Hot Patterns Sporty Sarong Shorts?

I've had it in my stash for a while but never made it, lol. Can't seem to find the right fabric. But the 2 reviews here on PR sound like they both approve - and it's FREE!

Oh, but apparently the sizing is more like RTW -Size chart

I made these last summer, about December, and almost wore them to death in the last few months. It's getting a bit too cold now so I've put them away but I'd definitely make them again. It's the sort of pattern that would be very easy to grade up - in fact I had to grade it down quite a lot in places because there was just too much overlapping fabric in the front for my taste. They were easy and breezy to wear, flattering, and my husband loved me in them!

Brown Paper Patterns. Also Leslie in Austin made some nice skorts a few years back.
