I'm working on a design that requires slashing (where the fabric bubbles out and another fabric can be seen, NOT just slits) on the front of a skirt, but can't find any instructions on how to do it.

anyone know?? tutorials and pics would be great but not required.

Can you describe it better or upload a photo or drawing of what you need?

i basically want to make a slashed sleeve, just as a skirt.

like the top of the sleeves here. http://images.buycostumes.com/mgen/merchandiser/31731.jpg

I've been thinking about doing similar (just with sleeves), and I think this is how I'd go about it:

1) Cut slits
2) Hem slits, so the hole ends up elliptical, rather than just a line.
3) Sew the top of the slashed fabric to the lining fabric.
4) Puff the lining fabric through the hole to the desired degree, and tack into place.

Bear in mind, I haven't attempted this..

These sleeves look like they were accomplished in the same way as this pattern:  http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m4107-products-1009.php?page_id=493  The one with the ribbons.

This cut-out technique would probably work better on something the length of a skirt:  http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m4997-products-6402.php?page_id=493

I think the trick is usually to tack the puffs in place, as another poster mentioned.  That, and making sure the volume of the undergarment is sufficient to create the puffs desired.

How about making tubes of fabric, twisting it so the seam is on the underside and joining the tubes at the bottom with a sleeve band?
