All Love Notions Sewing Patterns are digital downloads, you may print them at home or send to a copy shop. A physical pattern will not be mailed to you.

The Sybil Illusion Skirt Collection is the only skirt pattern you’ll need.

    Spectacular collection. True to size and the pattern is easy to follow on all skirt styles. (I am a L/XL with belly pouch and ample bottom.) 🙂 Love that it’s in layers so I can print out just my size. These are all skirts that will be a staple in my wardrobe for years to come. I’ve already made three and I can’t wait to make more!

    This is such an awesome pattern! Great fitting skirts in adorable styles. The pattern is easy to put together and the instructions are super clear, making it possible to put together a skirt quickly that turns out perfectly! Would totally recommend this pattern.

    What an amazing pattern! Made just the one so far but I am in love! Fits perfectly and it was super easy to put together. Thanks so much!

    There are so many options for the skirt you are bound to have several, if not all, fit your body type. This pattern got me back into wearing skirts!

    Love, love , love this ! Don’t think I’d ever need to buy another knit skirt pattern. Tami has cornered the market on knit skirt patterns

    I ADORE this skirt pattern!!! It is the ultimate skirt collection all in one pattern and the last knit skirt pattern you’ll need to buy! The drop yoke is my favorite, but all of them are fabulous. The pencil skirt is the best-fitting pencil skirt pattern I’ve tried. I’ve been disappointed with many others. Get this pattern! You won’t regret it.

    I’ve only made the pencil skirt thus far but I am so glad that I purchased this pattern. The only reason that I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the pencil skirt is a little wider at the bottom than one expects in a pencil skirt which makes the skirt look a little more a line than I like. I was able to modify this by tapering the skirt in from the lower thigh area to the bottom.

    In general, I love how LN patterns go together. The organization of the instructions, etc. is also well put together with much thought given. I have only made the pleated version and have the gore version printed to put together. According to the measurement chart I am a small and the skirt fits perfectly per the chart. I’m 5′-6″ and the length is perfect however lengthen/shorten lines are provided if needed. There is so much value in this pattern as the pencil skirt will be the third I will make from this pattern and love that I didn’t have to make a single pattern adjustment.

    There are so many options packed into this pattern! The instructions make it easy to get a good fit.

    This is, by far, my most worn pattern in my current wardrobe. I have at least 6 pencil skirts (that I can make with a YARD, yes one yard) of fabric. It allows me to be professional and feel good about myself. With the tummy control option I can keep my mom bod in check and feel great. I’ve also made the pleated version and paired it with the Tessa Sheath Dress bodice. I could go on and on about how I love this pattern. From the endless options to the trimless pages, it is WELL worth your money.

  11. Zulma

    Simply awesome! All the options included and it can be mashed with the Tessa dress <3!! As always a great pattern and super cute!

  12. Anne (verified owner)

    I love all the variations in this pattern. It’s a whole skirt wardrobe in one. I’m just searching for the perfect fabric to sew one up!

  13. Evelyn (verified owner)

    Love the hidden control panel, after 2 kids, oh I need this!

  14. Christina (verified owner)

    Love how versatile this pattern is. Definitely a staple in my wardrobe.

  15. Trista

    Love all the options. It’s the only pattern I need to make office wear for my new job.

  16. clsmclean (verified owner)

    This is my go to pattern for any skirt I want to make! I personally love the swing skirt and the pleated skirt! It is perfect! The directions are easy to follow and this pattern is so versatile for all the different styles! Thanks!

  17. ashley (verified owner)

    This is by far the best skirt pattern I have bought. There is tons of options and the directions are very well done! 🙂

  18. Andrea Wirtanen (verified owner)

    Such a awesome skirt pattern. So many options and cute styles. Great directons. I have made many of the pencil skirt and love them. Look forward to trying some of the other styles.

  19. Shayla (verified owner)

    Just whipped up a pencil skirt–couldn’t be easier! Medium fit perfectly without any adjustments. The results looked fabulous! Pattern is versatile, well drafted, and printed well. Instructions are straight forward and easy to follow.
