Here is a summary of the six summer skirts.
Click on each picture to take you to its post
with the tutorial and writeup.
Top row: Classic Gathered Skirt, Tiered Skirt
Middle row: Gathered Panel Skirt, Fitted Panel Skirt
Bottom Row: Circular Skirt, Wrap Skirt
And here is the cheat sheet:
Some notes on dimensions and things:
- Wherever a skirt is elasticized (1,2,3,5,6) the dimensions shown are of the fabric pieces themselves. Therefore the dimensions include seam and hem allowances.
- Wherever a skirt is fitted (4,7) the dimensions are those of the paper pattern. Therefore the dimensions do not include the seam and hem allowances. You will need to include that when you cut the fabric pieces out. Usually, a 1/2" seam allowance is sufficient, except where that seam has a zipper (in which case use 3/4").
Incidentally, I cut some experiemtal shapes out of
fabric today for a skort (a pair or skorts? A skort?)
If that works out, I'll post on it.
