I've put together some diagrams for cutting out the Drape Gather Skirt sewing pattern
. I've considered fabric widths of 110cm, 130cm and 150cm for the shell of the skirt, across all the sizes 6-22. I'll deal with the cutting of the lining for this skirt in a separate post. I suggest that your first sample is an unlined skirt so you have the opportunity of finessing the fit before making a fully lined version. One constant feature of cutting these drape patterns is there is always what I would consider a lot of waste fabric. I tend to keep the larger pieces and use them in future projects. I've found that a pattern with a number of smaller pieces works really well. I use a paneled waistcoat design that has 5-6 pattern pieces that use the waste from the skirt design very well.
