San Jose, Califo...
I fell in love with sunnilj9’s linda hoop skirt and i just had to have a knock off. So I made this one out of nice wool material from hancock.
This is a “self-drafted” skirt. But really, I just put on basic wide band waist for the waist part, and cut out a circle for the skirt piece. For some reason, I couldnt figure out a good way to cut out the skirt so that the bias was in the front, possibly due to lack of material + temporary stupidity. I ended up cutting out two half circles, realized that the biased seam wont be in the front like the linda hoop skirt, then went and cut those two pieces into eight pieces, pieced them together so that all the seams matches, and its biased seam in the front and sides. Luckily, it didn’t affect how it looks, just a lot more work!
For the lining, I also copied sunnilj9 and chose a bright yellow thin polyester with wide lace around the hem. Yellow and brown just goes too well together! I was actually hoping to find orange to match the stripes, but did not have any luck at Hancock. Choosing a thin lining was important so that I dont add more bulk to this skirt!
