skirt #2

日本語が英文の後に続きます。For my Japanese readers, please scroll down to read the blog in Japanese.

Just a quick sew from the Female magazine I wrote about in a previous post.

It is comprised of 12 panels and the waist is elasticated, but risk-adverse me had to make a muslin to test the fit and style anyway.





I am noticing since I stopped buying clothes that I am running out of bottoms to wear! Bottoms seem to not go through the test of time as well as tops do, at least in my case. So I will be on the look out for more simple patterns like this!

Quick facts:

Pattern: #20 skirt from FEMALE Magazine Autumn 2013 – size M
Adjustments: added 1 cm in length
Fabric: Kokka cotton voile

FEMALE 2013秋号に記載されてるパターンでスカートを作りました!こんなシンプルな形のスカートですが、実は合計13枚の布で構成されたデザインで縫い合わせるのが大変だった!しかもすべて袋縫いで。それでもウエイスト部分がゴムなので比較的に簡単に作れたかな。

    1. Thanks Erin! I am also thinking of making more of these in different colors – easy to match with many tops and no need to with about fit too much with the elasticated waist:)

  1. Cool styling! I like the contrast between the lightness of the flowery skirt and the thickness of the fleece hood and opaque tights. Still, I wonder why “12 panels” for that kind of elasticated-waist skirt… I’d like to take a look at the construction diagram.

    1. Thanks Helene! Haha, yes thinking back I also think why I needed 12 panels 🙂 the actual skirt is quite voluminous – my husband likens it to a cheerleader skirt. The construction consists of sewing together 2 types of panels – alternating between 1 long pizza wedge shape triangle (tip on top) and a long rectangle (narrow edges on top and bottom), then adding a waist band with elastic to gather it. Hope this makes sense!

      1. Very clear indeed! I understand that this construction makes the skirt more flared while not too thick at waist. Thanks for the explanation.
