I started with the original A-line skirt pattern, and decided to keep the front and back yoke as is.
then altered the rest.
I wanted a nice drapy detail in front.
I tried to figure out how it works the way I imagined by folding, cutting, and gluing the original pattern.
and of course by ‘trial and error’.

a simple project turned into a confusing frustrating project…
I was getting so consumed by it as it wasn’t coming together nicely.
I almost gave up. but I was persistent enough to finish it.

the black lacy lining is a separate piece that is made out of an upcycled material.

it became more like a tulip skirt…
hope it was okay to enter this to an A-line skirt contest…

more blogged here :)

    You ended up with an original creation. I think it was worth the effort!

    I tryed folding my skirt pattern to do different things but it wouldnt cooperate. I should have used glue, but I had better methods.
