Stretch fabrics and fit Recently, I received an email from Carole. Carole just got herself a brand new Wiggle skirt pattern and she had a question: “Does this pattern really need a fabric with 50% stretch? Would it work with a fabric that has 20% stretch?

Besides I feel a desire to stretch my drafting muscles a little. Some of you may remember my first post on Golden Ratio and how it may apply to sewing: “Sometimes in the course of garment construction or design, the sewist must make a seemingly arbitrary decision about… length, {or} depth… A poor judgment call on one of these seemingly random decisions can render the garment dowdy or ridiculous… The ancients faced a similar problem in architecture, and artists often turn to the golden ratio in their work.

When posting the sketch of the puzzle I included images of the historic reference. It is interesting to see how Lynn made the pattern shape connection with the drape and waterfall of these historic garments. Asymmetric skirt This is the first adaptation from my Basic Pencil skirt pattern I made a few weeks ago.

I like asymmetric shapes but as keeping it easy is always my intention, I used a draped front you can close with hooks.
