1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Daft Q about basic skirt sewing on: June 16, 2008 12:05:09 PM
Hi everyone, I'm (very!) new here and stumbled across this forum when I was googling basic skirt patterns. I'm new to sewing clothes and I've only made a gathered skirt for my daughter so far.

I want to make a very basic ankle-length skirt for me next, either a simply gathered one or one with five panels or so. My (very daft I suspect) auestion is about curving the fabric. Do I need to cut the fabric at the waist and lower hem in a staight line or a curve? I've thought about this for hours and still can't work it out! It sounds a bit dense I know  Huh If it needs to be in a curve, what sort of angles are we talking? I feel lost already!  Shocked

All help is VERY appreciated - thanks in advance Smiley
