Du fil et mon...: Jupe porte-feuille réversible Il fut un temps où je me promenais sur Dawanda et autres sites regorgeant de merveilles, je bavais devant certaines créations ...

Circle skirt calculator – for the drafting of full, half and 3/4 skirts. With bonus grading worksheet! | The Snug Bug Special Sunday greetings you naked molerats! Since you’re so naked, I thought you might want to make yourselves some nice little circle skirts. And perhaps, like me, you find yourself with little mole rat patterns just a touch on the small side. But the grading of a circle skirt isn’t so easy, is it you naked rodents? OK. Recently I’ve been plotting about two separate circle-skirt related issues in my head. For molerats who are unfamiliar with circle skirts, here’s the difference between the three styles. For a much more interesting comparison, here’s a full circle skirt. {image Whirling Turban} Here’s the oh, so lovely three-quarter circle skirt. And a slightly pixelated half circle skirt… {image Get Go Retro} The other circle-skirt related problem I’ve been mulling over has to do with grading up circle skirts.

Summer of Skirts - Anthropologie Ruffled Skirt Tutorial Here it finally is - the anthropologie inspired skirt tutorial! There are two ways to do this. One is to make the whole skirt yourself using a knit fabric, and the other is to take an existing pencil or slim a-line skirt you already have and add the ruffles to it. If you choose to do the latter, simply skip to the ruffle steps below. What you need: - About a yard of knit fabric, depending on your size (see step 1 for details). - Two contrasting fabrics, about 1/4 to 1/8 each. I made this skirt have a half lining to it because the knit was so thin. Step 1: Measure around the widest part of your hips. I'm sorry I didn't get pictures of this part. Step 2: Mark where your length measurement of the skirt ends (so you should have a mark between the extra lining fabric you added and the actual length you want your skirt to be). Step 3: You might want to curve the top of the skirt, depending on where you want your skirt to sit. Step 7: Next is another partway ruffle!
