Tuto-taille-haute-1976450_large

For the skirt pattern I used this tute ( http://lesfeestisseuses.xooit.com/t6752-jupe-Ma-jupe-taille-haute.htm ) but it's french.
I tried to make a translation, hope it's clear !

As added in the comments :

"The skirt is composed of 6panels.
On the sketch, you can see only the half of the pattern pieces.
The middle piece is the front/back piece. It measures 16cm.
To find the measure of the side pieces, you have to take away 16cm from your underbust measurement and divide it by 4 (because it is the half pattern so there are two side pieces)."

      Yes !
      That’s a good idea to try with paper, I think it will be easier to understand the process.

    This might be a silly question, but how do you determine the angles on the side pieces? (since the bottom is not just straight, but on an angle, how would you choose the angle for that?)

      The side pieces are just like the front one. The shema is not clear about that. :/
      You don’t have to choose an angle, it’s straight like the front piece :)

    I’m not sure what you mean with this step… do you take away 16cm from the underbust measurement? I would love to have a little more detail

    thank you :)

      I’m not sure to be clear, if you don’t understand I’ll find another way to explain it ! :)
