One thing that I LOVE to sew is something vintage mixed with a modern twist. And this skirt is just the ticket….
I based it on a skirt that I pinned months ago. What a fun modern color-blocked skirt was my first thought when I pinned it. But when I examined a couple of the close-up pictures I realized that it really was a total throw-back full gathered skirt from the 1950’s that I put on dresses all the time.
Step #1: Take your waist measurement. Triple this number (yes, you want a full skirt….triple your waist measurement!)
Step #2: Measure how long you want your skirt to be.
Step #3: Cut your main fabric your length (minus a contrasting band if you are doing the color-blocking) and the triple-waist-measurement.
Step #4: Sew the main fabric piece like the picture below. This way you won’t have a seam down the middle of your skirt. (Cut your second main piece into 2 sections).
