Since its summer, I decided to go a little shorter, I made this knee length version of the 6 panel skirt that I previously made the tutorial on. The tutorial can be found here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433982.0#axzz35fMBMlwv

To shorten, I traced my previous starting piece from the longer skirt to knee length to make another template for the short version. (1/6 of my waist measurement at the top, through the center to knee length)

To add extra flare I added an additional 3 1/2" at the bottom on either side so that the bottom hem is closer to the hem length of the longer skirt. I cut 4 of this piece.

The pocket and pocket liner pieces stayed the same as in the long skirt since the waist area really wasn't changed.

To cut the 2 shorter pieces that go with the pockets, I again folded at the hip-line and added 1/2" seam allowance at the top.

I added double fold bias tape across the pocket top hemline, just encasing the raw edges rather than sewing them together and then encasing them after.

I added darts in the center of all side panels including the pocket pieces.

Encased waist raw edge and bottom hem in double fold bias tape.

Added a regular hook and eye, in black to match the tape, above the invisible zipper since there is no real waist band.

Learn to turn frustration into fascination. You will learn more being fascinated by life than you will being frustrated by it.
