How to change the style of a skirt pattern
How to change the style of a skirt pattern?
Any skirt pattern can be used as your base for creating another, completely different, skirt style!
Pattern drafting is a big personal passion of mine and I’m fairly good at it too so I would like to invite you to join me in the wonderful world of pattern manipulation with this short and quick skirt tutorial!
In this tutorial you will learn how to revert a flared skirt pattern back to a straight cut style, create an gentle A line by flaring out the sides of the original cut even more and how the length of the skirt while keeping the original fullness of the bottom edge. All three methods of pattern manipulation can be applied to the same pattern to create your super creative brain child!
Hope you will find this tutorial useful! 😀
Method is demonstrated on a long fishtail skirt pattern – Annabelle – though the same principle can be applied on other skirt or dress patterns.
