The green fluffy skirt

Posted on in Articles · Sewing · skirts

Hello Guys!

I take this little moment to talk about my last sewing work . I made a beautiful green skirt with no pattern.

I saw this season a lot of tulle skirt in shops but none of them was exactly the shape or the color I wanted. So I made some research to find a good tutorial to do it without any pattern. And I found the blog “A pair and a spare” .  The blogger has a nice idea with her skirt but I wanted something less fluffy and have a different finish on the waist.

So I took my time and then I remembered that I had this book in my library “La coupe à plat nº1, Prêt-à-porter & sur-mesure pour dame” by Jacqueline Chiappetta and wouhaaa it enlightened my mind on how to do this simple skirt!

And instead of doing a circle skirt in tulle I worked on a rectangular skirt with a green chiffon and I used a cotton lining to make it comfortable.

I cut my chiffon fabric larger than the lining so I could add darts and make the skirt less straight. You can see more or less how I prepared the darts before sewing in the pictures. I just had to calculate how many I had to place on the waist. So I made this calculations:

Length of the chiffon – length of the lining = Delta
(Length of the lining/Delta)*THE WIDTH OF THE DARTS*2 = The distance between the darts

I’m not sure I’m very clear about that! 🙂 I just finished the job by slipping an elastic inside the belt.

I will not explain every steps of the project here but if you want to know more about how I processed just ask, I will answer to your questions with great pleasure!

It was to cold outside to make a visit of Brighton in a summer skirt so I had to make a change of scenery so you can see the final result. 🙂

Have a nice day dear readers!

Cheers my Dears!
