tutorial, help or Ideas
Does anyone know how or where I can find a tutorial, for this type of skirt: http://purpleravenwings.deviantart.com/art/Pirate-skirt-83441556?q=boost%3Apopular%20pirate%20skirt&qo=0
I'm mainly just looking to do the top or that not the striped part Thanks!
I would suggest taking a couple yards of fabric and tying the side like a sarong. The rest looks like some gathers and pick-ups.
That just looks like they took a rectangle or a trapezoid shaped cut of the purple fabric, tied it at the waist and then grabbed parts and pinned it up in bunches. It'd be super easy if you had a dress form or a friend to help you either wear the skirt while you pinned it or vice versa. Just like the person who made it says, Just drape and sew, lol.
Heres a tip though. use safety pins to pin the bunches in place from the inside. That way if while your working you dont like one, you can just unpin is and try again I had to make Esmareldas outfit once for a play, all the bunching and pinning was a pain, but it turned out cool in the end!
Thanks for the advice I'm going to try that!
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
