I've only just seen the music video for Cheryl Cole's "Parachute" (yes I know it came out ages ago, but it takes me ages to get into the 'popular' stuff because the radio stations rinse the chart stuff to death) and I am positively in LOVE with the dress she wore.



I'm all set to draft my pattern and add my own personal changes when I realise something - the dress has a rise and fall hem, and I have NO IDEA how to make one of those.

A search on Google proved fruitless, so I thought maybe you guys would be able to help.

Anyone have any idea how to make a rise and fall hem?

*GASP*

LUDI! Get out of my brain!!!! That's the exact same Paint picture *I* was going to draw!!!!

Ahem, but yes, you can do all kinds of neat things just by making a hole for your waist in a piece of fabric. A "circle" skirt need not be constrained to a circle Cheesy

The only thing I would add is that that particular skirt looks like it may have the waist circle cut a little bit larger and pleated in the back, to create that bustle-y type effect.  I could be wrong, and that could all be the draping of that wide border fabric, but there looks like there's a lot of fabric back there, even for that big a circle.
