This beautiful sewing pattern was designed by Sean Cabezas, a senior Fashion Design major at Parsons The New School for Design. We wanted to offer an outsider’s fresh take on fashion, and we are in love with the outcome!
Inspired by dinosaur scales, this avant-garde skirt has 3 tiers consisting of multiple “scales” or hexagonal shapes of fabric. We made our sample in black hammered silk, but other silks could work just as well. You could also experiment with other types of drape-y, lightweight fabrics, too.
Please Note: The pattern indicates using a button for the closure, but you may find it more flattering to use a hook & eye clasp if you are not so keen on making button holes or having an exposed button.
P.S. – Get the sewing pattern for the awesome belt seen in the photos, here.
Pattern Sizes: 34-44
