this is a marker-on-printer-paper lame-ass tutorial i did in three minutes, and it probably doesn't make sense, but here's my take on that "karin skirt" by my rebe:



ok, to explain what my tutorial left out:

1) cut two wasitband/yoke peices, gather them at the sides
2) install a zipper
3) hem top edge of yoke. bleh. whatever i don't know how
4) cut a wonky shaped true skirt. i don't know if the triangle would be taken from just the yoke, or the true skirt too. it's hard to tell from a picture. just do whatever.
5) gather top edge of "true skirt" (this is the largest piece)
6) attach the gathered "true skirt" to the waistabnd/yoke bottom edge.
7) cut those weird "false skirt" pieces. the second layer one looks like it's triangular shaped. basically, the missing piece of the wonky hemline of the true skirt. the other is probably a real rectangle.
Cool do yourself a favor and attach the lace in such a way, that you are actually hemming the false skirts too. trust me, it works. just think about it.
9) before you attack the lace for the true skirt, you have to fiddle and attach the false skirts and the lace at the same time. ok, that makes no sense. again, it's like attaching the lace and hemming at the same time, only there is three layers.
10) look at your knock-off skirt, and wonder why you followed this tutorial that some 19 year old who is always cussing at her own sewing skills made in three minutes before heading off to work.

 Roll Eyes gee, maybe i should have tried to amek a mini-mock up of this first.

 Shocked oh! yeh, make a mini mock up first. make it like, american girl-doll sized. that's how i learned to screw up--err sew-- my own clothes from wonky patterns i made myself.

show my pictures if you try to follow this.  Grin

Are you near completing the rag skirt pattern? Don't mean to sound rude but would love to know how to make it and some of the links didn't work. If you have any spare time would also love to know how to make a skirt like the bottom of half (don't mind how top of skirt done) this:

all right y'all, ok, so i'm not shade_n_shadow, but this is something i can help you with!

Ok I'm a plus size female, so how would I go about making a pattern for a size 20 to a size 24? Is the pattern even useful to me if it's not my size? not exactley what the post is about sorry.

Jailin ,
measure yourself (check out: http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm?page=section/fittips/bestguidefit.htm and http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm?page=section/fittips/fitbrochure/reallyknow.htm )

and yes, patterns can be useful to you, even if they aren't your size. i'm a "plus size"  Roll Eyes junior, and i have patterns that i've adapted from the collection i had when i was a kid. iall you have to know is where and how to fix what does fit. there is several excellent books on the subject, which i've see nat my public library (but i also own them) http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0848714377/103-2092218-8369400

hope that helps!

I'm wondering about making a Fred anda Wilma (from The Flintstones) for my boyfriend and I. I dont want it to be too frumpy looking. If you could help that would be great. (I have 3 yards of white material and 3 yards of orange so far

jm2luver21,
the fred's outfit is mainly a rectangle, with a whole cut out of the top for the head, and triangles cut from the bottom hemline. rounded off triangles are sewed/glues/attacthed in random places, and then he has a bright turquoise tie. grab a tie, and draw around it for the pattern. basically, find a picture to go by, and measure how long you want it to be.

for wilma's dress, it's also a rectangle, but with a diagonal line across the shoulders. i thin kthere is a tutorial somewhere under "reconstructed" clothing for a "one shoulder" shirt. there's also elastic at the waist, and the same triangles cut form the hemline.

ii don't know if it's possible not to make it "frumpy", seeing as how anything with little shaping has a tendency to look "frumpy"

hope that helps!

Randommarble,

the dress/skirt appears to be fitted from the waist, through the hips. i think it's cut on the bias, based upon the way it drapes so nice, but the drape is also based upon the fabric. the funky hemline looks to be what they call "the hankercheif" (hem) but i'm not certain; it's made at different lengths to achive the effect.

on second glance it could possibly be two layers.

well, i don't know how much more kind of detail you want, but i hope that helps.

Could someone help me find (or draft) a pattern for this simple dress. I can't find it in the color I want (pale lavendar) and I'd also like to add some beadwork or silver thread to spice it up. Any help you can provide will be highly appreciated!

Wow that's so generous....

I was thinking I could alter a blazer pattern with a peplum waist and adjust the lapels but not sure the best way to go about this.  Ideas? 

Thanks for your help guys!
