i'm in need of a sailor-y skirt pattern and i can't really seem to find anything on simplicity, butterick, vogue, kwik-sew and others. i've also checked the tutorials on here, but i'm not so good without a pattern. i want it to be above the knees and pleated. it's probably something that would be more costume-y or maybe even a cheerleader skirt pattern (but for an adult!). can anyone help with a pattern recommendation? i would be very grateful!

something like this:

but maybe less pleats and more of a front panel type thing. but a bit longer.

thank you so much in advance if you have anything for me!

Yup, you're right!  Check out Simplicity's traditional costumes.  There's an adult cheerleader pattern that has a similar skirt (View D).  It may or may not need to be lengthened to get the right length, and you may want to modify the waistband with a couple extra seams to get that front panel right, but it should be a great place to start!  Good luck!

I was looking at McCalls patterns and thought maybe their Pattern M5375 might work.  http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5375.htm?tab=skirts_pants&page=2
They also have a childrens/girls cheerleading pattern M2849 that you could modify.

Only exceptionally rational people can afford to be absurd.
