Cutting and Making Up a Basic Straight Skirt
Posted 02 September 2010 - 03:35 PM
I have posted other chapters from this book before and was convinced that I had already posted this basic section on cutting and making a plain skirt. To my horror, I searched and came up empty handed. It is an excellent beginner's introduction to skirt making, as well as to tailoring in general and I should have shared it with members earlier. Those who have trouble following instructions in books will find home tutors and evening classes that will guide you.
There is also the thread on the Rundschau system for cutting skirts. This also contains information on how to draft for disproportionate figures. Beginners may want to consider trying the Rundschau system if there are disproportions that need accounting for.
Another book that should be read alongside this one is Cabrera's book, which contains information on making up skirts as well.

I'm also pleased to see that although my technical skills certainly can be improved, I'm familiar with most of the steps. I just have to develop a draft that fits and flatters me and sew it several times with different materials.
