I'm trying to make a costume for my wife and she wants the skirt like this one (pic below) that drops in the back. I've been brainstorming on how to do it and think I may have it figured out but would like to see if my thinking is correct.
1) Draw out a regular circle skirt pattern.
2) Come in some from both sides and draw a tapered line down lower than the regular circle.
3) Cut it out and trim the drop off of everything except the back.
Maybe this is more complicated than I'm thinking. Won't this put the drop on 4 sides the way the fabric is folded for the circle skirt?
Is there an easier way to do this than I'm thinking?
Any help would be awesome. This will be my first skirt I've ever made but I'm not one to back down from a challenge so it has to be made one way or another. Thanks in advance for any help!
Here's an example of the skirt I'm trying to make.
