Drape Skirt Patterns using my Skirt Block

Monday, February 27, 2017

Moving beyond your first skirt patterns to drape skirt patterns:  To work with these more complex skirt patterns you would need to have confidence in your skirt block.  By that I mean you know if fits because you've used it to make number of skirt patterns.   A small fitting or shape error in your basic skirt block will have some impact on outcome of these skirts.  Try my graded set of skirt blocks for any of these delicious drape skirt patterns.  If you're fortunate enough to live in Sydney my next Draped Skirt Patterns Workshop will be running on Saturday the 17th June at my studio in Marrickville.Drape Skirt Patterns
