Ogre, Latvia






based on Nayantara’s Quick Party Skirt.
it makes me unpatient for spring to come. enought with the snow. bring out the bright colours!
it makes me think of band Alphabeat.

Material Notes

pure cotton. acctually it’s vinatge – 1987, ‘STAVA’ designed by Tania Alyhr. it’s so vintage that it’s even older than me!

    Thanks for the info. After I posted I realized that you said where you got the instructions. lol.

    I was thinking of making the same style skirt as yours, just no zipper…I was going to do a flat front and add elastic in the back, so it can just be slipped on. I love the fullness of your skirt, it seems fuller that nyantaras. Did you use the measurements for cutting the main skirt pieces as given in her instructions or did you add some to it?

      in the instructions in step5 i didn’t cut 3 seperate pieces but one large one which was 230cm wide, than did the ruffling part, i i can call it so. acctually my skirt is more simple as nayantara’s original, if not including the zipper, but that was quite easy too.

    This is brilliant! The fabric really complements the skirt design. Great decision to make the skirt high waisted – it shows off your fabulous figure and adds some sex appeal ;)

      well, thanks. i myself am surprised about how damn good it looks in the end.
      and yeah, high-waisted skirt is my favorite!

    HI. I love the skirt! If you dont mind me asking…how long did you make it? Also, did you use the circle method or just rectangles? If you used rectangles, how wide did you cut each piece? Thanks!

      hi. no i don’t mind at all. i made it by instructions given in Nayantara’s quick party skirt. the only difference between my variation is that i did it high-waisted. no, it’s not circle. it’s hard to explain. just take a look at the Nayantara’s original-it has all the instructions.
      oh, one more. i sewed cotton, so it’s no-strach. so i used zipper as well. and if you want to make high waisted skirt, than take longer zipper, because it will be hard to get into the skirt, if it’s short! i always have to wear them over the head. :)
      hope it helped. but the instructions are brilliantly simple. and if you don’t get distractions, than you can finish it in few hours.

    Love the print! I actually would have thought the fabric was older – like 70’s.

      i didn’ t really measure the lengh as i had bought about 12m of the fabric. but, wait..
      i just measured it and in done it is 47cm not including the waist band part. but, when i sewed it, i leaved it longer and shortened to my desirable length in the end.
