Hello~<br>
I am from a small town and there isn't many shops that carry the clothing I like wearing. I was wondering if anyone had any EASY sewing patterns for broomstick skirts, patchwork skirts, etc. I love flowing simple skirts. (Some people would label them "hippie skirts"...just to give you an idea of what I'm looking for) I'd really appreciate it.<br><br>
Thanks,<br>

If there's a skirt you have that you really like and want another but in a different style, you don't really need a pattern. Fold it inside-out and trace it with a pencil or chalk onto the fabric that you want it in, and add an inch for seams. Then all you do is sew and hem it.<br>
If that doesn't work, you can either order some off ebay for dirt cheap, or do a search for free online patterns.

New Look makes nice patterns and are widely available. If you are interested in making hippie type strip skirt I would recommend this site: <a href="http://patternsthatfityou.com/frSkirtCl.htm" target="_blank">http://patternsthatfityou.com/frSkirtCl.htm</a> It's a good launching off point. I like a ten or more strip skirt so I just adjust the measurements accordingly.
