If you are able to sew a button, then you can easily make this skirt. All the tasks are made of cut-and-go microfiber suede (the best known: Ultrasuede). For the scalloped edge, follow a cereal canister. Yes, its that unscientific.
Utilizing our example format or emulating the guidelines underneath, the skirt example ought to first be created out of muslin and finished utilizing Ultrasuede.
- 1 3/4 yards of heavyweight 45-inchwide fabric (for a skirt larger than size 8, you will need to buy 2 yards)
- Erasable fabric marker
- 32-ounce oatmeal container
- Needle and thread
- Blueprint ultrasuede skirt pattern
Fold 1 3/4 yards of 45-inches muslin down the middle, so it is now 30 by 45 inches. (Utilize a bit more muslin in the event that you are making a skirt bigger than a size 8). Arrange the fabric with the goal that the fold is on your right-hand side. Mark 10 inches up on the folded edge (from the lower right-hand corner), and draw a raised bended line to the lower left hand corner.
Mark a spot on the edge inverse the fold about 39 inches up from the lowest part. From that point, draw an arched bended line to the upper right-hand corner (the other collapsed edge). Cut on lines, adjusting the counting lower left-hand corner. Wrap skirt around waist to fit. If skirt is not enormous enough to cover about 9 to 10 inches, repeat step 1, cutting a deeper bend from bottom end.
Follow oats holder to make shallow scallops along top. Slice scalloped edge through both layers at waist. Fold back top layer, and follow scallops around one end. Wrap skirt around waist to cover; let scallop end wrap.
Take completed muslin pattern and pin to Ultrasuede fabric (collapsed down the middle, so its 30 by 45 inches); imprint design with chalk. Remove the pattern with scissors.
Wrap skirt around waist to overlap; let scallop drape.
Mark closure spot on bottom layer with pin. Sew button on marked spot. Snip a small slit for buttonhole.
