Skirts

At this moment there are no instructions for Skirt Patterns.

The Elements pages contains some theory on how to create skirts such as:

  • A-line skirts
  • Flared Skirts
  • Circular skirts
  • Skirts with Pleats

The first Skirt Pattern that will be created is shown in the flat below.  Skirt 001 will be an 8 gored skirt with a low waist, yoke and front pockets.  It will be a while before I get to sewing this skirt and putting up the instructions.

Hello Maria,
I have been binge-reading your wonderful website for a few weeks now. The information you provide here is so encouraging! As soon as I can get the french curves I downloaded from "Grow Your Own Clothes" cut out nicely, I will be eagerly working through the exercises. This particular pattern-making walkthrough will be checked often for updates because the pattern I have in mind has a yoked-back 8-gore skirt. I really hope you are doing well!
Lots of admiration, Savannah

Hello Savannah

Hello and thanks for leaving a comment.

I have quite a bit of information on drafting skirts in the Elements menu; that is, covering the basic theory of how to draft A-line, flared, circle, dirndl (&etc) skirts, but I still haven't written any instructions for a skirt pattern. (The difference between the Elements Pages & The Pattern Pages is the Elements is the basic theory, the Pattern walks you right through drafting the full pattern and covers adding (for example) the waistband or yoke, and/or adding pockets, etc).

Reading your comment I've realised I still haven't finished the writing up the gored skirts that are supposed to be in the Elements Menu (Sigh!).

I haven't managed to get any work done on my website or Youtube Channel for the last two months, but hope to get back to it soon. I will try to get the Gored Skirts in the Elements Menu done first, but it will be quite a while before I'll be able to get to a Skirt Pattern. Unfortunately (for you) I will be concentrating on Pants (Patterns) next (I wear pants much more than skirts!)... Also, a heads-up, all future pattern instructions will probably be in a booklet format for which I'll charge $5 or so for. (I have to start covering costs on my website or I can't continue).... I will still put up the Elements and other theory up for free, but have to start charging for something.

Cheers
Maria
