Tell me, oh Goddess of Lovely Clothes, what is the secret formula to figure out how much fabric to cut and how many pleats to make to yield a well-fitting pretty skirt?

Tell me, oh Goddess of Lovely Clothes, what is the secret formula to figure out how much fabric to cut and how many pleats to make to yield a well-fitting pretty skirt?

well, it all depends on the size of the pleats and the kind of pleats.  there ARE forumlas for each kind.  what kind do you want to make?

the way i did this skirt was this:  i cut a piece of tulle for the yoke, which i wrapped around my body and pinned in darts till it fit with 2" ease at the hips, 1/2" ease at the waist, and 1/4" seam allowance for the zipper.  then i layed the yoke flat on the table, and started pinning pleats in the chiffon.  i did NOT measure the pleats, i did it by eye, and when i had the whole yoke covered, i cut off the excess chiffon.  it took a little more than 2.75 widths of 45" wide fabric.  if i had used something with more body, i'd have used less fabric.

as i mentioned, i have a hard time getting clear pictures of red things--i have no idea why--so this is a picture of another top that i made from the same pattern.  you can see that the outer layer pulls to the side, revealing the inner layer with the nursing access.

Oh, I love the fabric of this last one. (Both are great, but I really LOVE the last one).
I wish I would have had wonderful nursing outfits.

These are really beautiful!

Did you say whether you used a commercial pattern or your own for the top?  I would love to make one of these.

this is my own pattern--i make patterns as part of my job, so it is quicker for me to make my own than to try to adjust a commercial pattern--but you could do this with any pattern that has a surplice empire bodice.
