Tango Godet

This is my first skirt but third piece. This is based on a pattern of my own design, that uses different amounts of flare on both sides of the seams to give a godet-like appearance without the skirt actually using the triangular inserts that make a true godet skirt. I had some difficulties with the fabric forming puckers along the seam – despite my best efforts, a few puckers remain. The skirt is light but moves well. What you can’t see in the photo is how marvelous the skirt is to touch.

Material Notes

Triacetate fabric, slightly different color for both the exterior and the lining. The second color was used to make the belt. The belt includes facing. Additional elements include a zipper and a “snag” closure for the belt.

    I really like the skirt for it’s own merit. as a tango skirt, though, I think it might be a little hard to dance in, having danced the tango myself on several occasions. Of course, this is just my un-professional opinion. But i love the fabric!

      Actually, I called it the Tango Godet because my fledgeling design company uses the word Tango. I do dance tango and I’m working on a set of designs for tango, but this is not one of them! I think you’re probably right, the skirt is a bit too tight to dance tango!
