Hey guys,
Can anyone give me some advice on drafting/designing my own A-line skirt pattern? I would like to be able to draft a pattern not just for myself, but for other gals, too. Currently, I have an idea for a skirt I'd like to make for a friend: a basic A-line skirt (above the knee) with a kick pleat, and I certainly have not been able to find a conventional pattern to suit my needs. I've been needing to design my own for a long time, but I'm not sure where to start. Any ideas on the proportions and measurements needed to draft my own pattern?

Thanks so much.... Huh

If you can adjust instructions to suit yourself, here is a tut for a 6 gore skirt. I would just combine the instructions for 3 gores and remove the seam allowance for the middle sections, and treat each former 3 panel section as a front and back. Clear as mud? LOL


Or wait, here's an a-line skirt tut:

Either way, a-lines are easy as pie.

Thanks for the links! You're right - the A-line should be easy as pie.  Grin
