1. You will create your skirt pattern according to your size and length length. Fold your fabric in half in the direction of the Laize, draw with pins or a tailor chalk, the dimensions of your skirt according to the diagram.
Your waist tower will allow you to define the width of your skirt: size tower /4 = width of your skirt on the pattern. We chose a skirt 80cm high.
Expand the bottom of your skirt by adding 15cm to your waist; You can also enlarge the trapeze shape if you wish. Once this shape has been drawn, add the seam margins of 1cm all around and 3 cm for the hem at the bottom of the skirt and cut.
2. Once your in front of a skirt cut out from the fabric, place it on your fabric folded in half to cut the same shape.
3. Draw and cut the samples of the skirt by taking up the top of the skirt on 8cm high. You get 2 pieces for the skirt and 2
Parts for facing. If your fabric is too fluid, you can cut a strip of thermocollants for your two facial parts and heat -make them to ensure better rendering.
4. Assemble place against the left side of your 2
Pose of closure:
5. Take your closure and pin on the top of your skirt. Set up the pressing foot for closing on your sewing machine. Sew as close as possible to the teeth of the invisible closure over fifteen centimeters high.
6. You will assemble the sides of your skirt, pin the two sides of the skirt against the place, then sew 1cm from the edge.
7. Assemble the facing your skirt, pinning along your size. Be careful to align the side seam of your facing and your skirt. Sew 1 cm all along the size of your skirt, as well as on the sides of your invisible closure.
