I spent some time this weekend working on my skirt pattern. This is going to take some work before I am ready to make a mockup.
To start with I copied my skirt sloper. I use a roll of newsprint to copy patterns and do my pattern drafting. It is important to copy everything so you can go back to the original in case there is a problem with the drafts.
With my copied sloper, I drew in my style lines where I am going to cut the skirt into separate pieces for the curved tiers.
I cut the pieces apart. None of these as they are have any seam allowances. Those have to be added later.
The top two pieces are the original waistband and the waistband with the added seam allowance. The bottom two pieces are the same piece in different stages. The first one is the piece that was cut from the sloper. The bottom piece has the insertions added into it so the top of the piece can be gathered into the waistband. I will do the same thing to the bottom two pieces.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
