You have probably seen a 6 pieces skirt on countless asoebi trains: Its a lovely outfit and adds instant glam to an ensemble.
Want to learn how to make yours?
Then you are in luck, because today I show you how to sew a 6 pieces skirt. It pretty easy too.
What you will need:
- Your fabric (of course)
- Matching thread
- a yard stick
- Measuring Tape
- Tailor’s chalk or any tool you use to make marks on fabric
- Sewing machine
Lets get started!
But first you will need to make some measurements:
The measurements you need for the skirt are:
- Hip measurement
- waist measurement
- waist to knee
- waist to ankle (or wherever you want your skirt to stop)
You need to determine how much fabric you will need. I gave instructions on how to do this in the video. The amount of fabric you will need depends a lot on the amount of flare you want. You will need to multiply your hip circumference by 2.5, or 3 or 3.5 or 4, even 5(if you can get that much fabric. Ankara typically comes in 6 yards, so it might not be feasible to multiply your hip by 5 if you intend to use ankara. Unless you have no intention of sewing a blouse with that ankara fabric)
In this example, I am using my hip measurement x 3.
Below you will see a simple illustration of how much fabric you should cut.
Now we are getting somewhere.
