McQ Skirt Inspiration

Added May 2, 2012

by Delphine C.

Port Au Prince, ...






For my draping class at FIT we had to drape a peg skirt where only center back is on grain. I then realized that it was how a McQ skirt (pictures courtesy of the outnet) was made and I’ve been obsessed with this skirt for a loooooong time. I actually tried to recreate it 2 years ago but failed… I decided to make it for the Pattern Review RTW contest going on right now…
