Tulip skirt (with 'Lots of Leaves' print)

Added Jan 5, 2014

Rotterdam, Nethe...






I love tulip skirts, they are hard to find in stores so I need to make most ones myself. I have been experimenting with making my own patterns and think this one works well. With little pleats in front and back.

I also designed the fabric ‘Lots of Leaves’ and had it printed on this lovely heavy cotton , it’s a big scale print but I think it works really well.

    Thanks ladies!

    I know Zaria, maybe we should set up our own line of tulip patterns, haha! They are just the best I think.

      Ha you could be onto something there, gap in the market for sure! It’s a great shape alright, a fashion forward look that suits the majority of figures. You’d swear to look at me there was no other style of skirt!

      Well, there is probably a reason there are hardly any patterns for tulip skirts or tulip skirts in stores, most woman just don’t like them I think haha!

    Oh I love a good tulip shape skirt! I’ve ran into the exact same problems trying to source patterns in such a shape. I’ve taken to drafting my own patterns too.

    There’s a brand called Closet, you might be able to find it online, they do lovely tulip shaped dresses, very flattering, my local boutique stock them and I’m drawn to that silhouette every time.

    Well done with designing the fabric, it’s gorgeous.
