This is probably the easiest skirt pattern to make, trust me it is really simple. This skirt will be made up of 6 panels but could be altered to use 8 panels if you like. My pattern should fit between a size 10 and a size 12 but I included the measurements for different sizes in a previous post so you can make it to fit your measurements. Also this pattern should be able to fit on an A3 bit of paper. Okay, I better start now.
Mark point A at the top right hand side of your paper and square in both directions.
Measure down 20.5 cm and mark point B
The distance between point A and point C should be the full length of your skirt plus a cm seam allowance. For me this was 41 cm.
Square at point B
The distance between point B and point D should be 1/6 of your hip measurement (or if your making 8 panels it should be 1/8 of your measurement.)
For me this is 16cm.
Square down to point E (from point D) and join to point C
Square up to point F (from point D) and join to point A
You should now have a full rectangle
Point G is halfway between point A and point F
For me this was 8.5 cm away from point F
Point G should also be halfway between point I and point H too
The distance between point I and H should be 1/6 of your waist measurement (or 1/8 if you're making 8 panels)
For me this was just under 12.5cm but I rounded up to 13cm
Curve a line between point I and point D
Then do the same for point H to point B
Cut it out, name it and note how whether the skirt is to be made up of 6 of these panels or 8 and you're finished.
Just like the straight skirt pattern, this can be manipulate in many ways to make your designs. I hope to show how to make a bubble skirt from this pattern maybe next week if I have time.
If you want to draft a waistband pattern for this skirt there is a quick tutorial here:
So anyway, hope you find this helpful, and if you have any issues with my tutorial please let me know so I can fix it as soon as. Thanks :)
