PLEASE NOTE: I am not a professional pattern drafter and I strongly recommend making a muslin first.
Also my instructions are, um, not so good. I am self taught and so my methods aren’t always so great. If you find a better way of doing a step please post it in the comments section so that other people can see and use your method.
This skirt is based on a dress I made (Cambden market dress).
It is essentially a half-circle skirt that sits on the natural waist. I am 5’7", as you can see the skirt is just above my knee. You can easily adjust the length by lengthening or shortening the skirt or frill pieces.
Its really easy, cute and flirty, and works well in both lighter summer printed fabrics or in a suiting for winter.
I love it because it takes so little time to make. You can also skip out the waistband part and add a bodice instead to make a full dress.
If you use this tutorial please post pictures of your creation, I’d love to see how you guys use this :)
Should suit most fabrics.
