This bundle includes all three skirt Patternmaking Guides: Ruffle Skirts, Flared Skirts, and Maxi Skirts. Which means 12 skirt designs for you to choose from! You can also mix and match details between designs and create even more skirt styles on your own.
Together these Guides will show you a variety of different skirt styles that you can make in any length. There are various flared, pleated, and ruffled skirts.
Drafting these designs, you’ll learn how to create front and side seam pockets, yokes, pleats and a button placket. You are also introduced to different ways to finish the waistline: facing or waistband.
These designs work best with light and medium-weight woven materials. Depending on the style and your preferences, you could use different types of cotton, viscose, polycotton, or light-weight wool.
All these Patternmaking Guides are classified "Easy" in difficulty and will be accompanied by the Basic Skirt Block guide.
Who is this product is for?
For anyone who has already sewn a few garments using commercial patterns and is now interested in learning how to draft their own unique patterns.
Who isn’t this product for?
Although the pattern making instructions provided are very detailed, complete-beginner sewers may find drafting these patterns quite challenging. Even a small understanding of garment construction will be extremely helpful. Also, these e-guides do not include instructions on how to sew the garments, so this might become a problem.
What is included in the e-guide order?
Each guide comes with the corresponding basic pattern instructions. So, for example, the ruffle skirts guide is accompanied by the basic skirt guide. This way you’ll be able to draft the basic skirt block that is needed for making the ruffle skirt patterns. The basic pattern guides also include additional patternmaking instructions related to the subject. You'll get a link to a video tutorial to draft the basic block.
Notice, that none of the patternmaking guides include the actual patterns. Instead, there are step-by-step instructions on how you can draft the pattern yourself using your measurements. The instructions consist of pictures and text and are limited to patternmaking only, so there are no sewing instructions. However, there is a Facebook group where I provide support if you need help with this.
You will get two versions of each PDF, metric and imperial; I know how difficult it can be to draft patterns and trying to convert measurements at the same time!
The patternmaking guides are for your personal use only, please do not publish or share the files or parts of them anywhere. Also, the garment designs provided are for personal use only, however, if you create your own pattern designs with the help of the instructions, this rule no longer applies to the resulting garments.
Due to the nature of digital goods, and the fact that you receive immediate access to the files, I cannot offer refunds or exchanges on the e-guides. So, please review the product information carefully before purchasing.
However, if there is a fault with the files or you get the incorrect items, do request a replacement.
You'll get the Maxi Skirts, Ruffle Skirts + Flared Skirts Guide and the Basic Skirt Pattern Guide PDFs, all in two versions, metric and imperial. There's also a PDF with planning sheets for each skirt.
