Remember the Jil Sander Twill peplum maxi skirt that came out about two years ago now? Well, I thought I’ll make my own take on it and here it is. I hope you’ll like it too :)
What you need to do is get a nice pattern for A-line maxi skirts, in order to get a little “tail” on the back you’will need to adet that puffy peplum around the waist you will need to measure the waist of your skirt which has to be fitted beforehand. Divide that number by 6.28 that will be your waist length and the radius of your circd extra width to the A-line starting from mid-thigh to bottom…almost like a bell shaped maxi skirt.. Draw a circumference with that radius on your fabric or sheet and when you are done add another good 20-25 cm to that radius and draw an even bigger circle around it like on the picture. You will need to do this on a double folded fabric so you will have two even shaped circles in order to get that puffy effect. I allowed an extra cm and used elastic waistbands instead of having to insert a zipper on the back and sewn the peplum onto the skirt’s waist.
