Skirts

Although there are currently no skirt patterns, the Elements pages contains theory on how to create skirts such as:

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

Eventually I will create a pattern for the skirt below.

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

Hi Lianne

You left this comment in the Skirts Pattern section, and I haven't done any skirt patterns (yet?!). But I do have the theory and instructions for about 15 skirts in the Elements Menu (A-lines, Circles, Pleats and Others). I did mean to add another 10 or so to that menu, but then got side tracked.

When I started the website I had a lot more time to work on it than I do now. I'm not sure when I'll get back to skirts or do a skirt pattern...

But you're more than welcome to the information that is here.

Cheers
Maria
