Pattern Review: Fashion in Harmony 801 – Chinese Lantern Skirts

Threads magazine - 156 – Aug./Sept. 2011 Issue

Style Tip: Soft, drapey fabrics with great texture in a solid or small print will make this style pop.

Fashion in Harmony-801 Chinese Lantern Skirts

These bohemian-style skirts are flattering on many body types. The distinctive shapes are made from two circles or two squares sewn together with the connecting seam running horizontally halfway between the skirt top and bottom. The shapes are placed on the bias so the fabric pools into either two cowls for the circle version or four for the square version. Although the shapes are simple and go together quickly, our tester recommends paying close attention to the cutting layout so the skirt hangs properly.

(Sized 8-26 for hips 35-52 in.)

Style Tip: Soft, drapey fabrics with great texture in a solid or small print will make this style pop.

-Tested by Sandy Hulshizer, Georgetown, Texas
