I have to do my final project skirt for class which needs to be done in two weeks. So I got up earlier to try and start it. I don’t want to leave it two long because I cannot afford to wait too long.
I have decided on a design. We all bought a pattern from school so that you can use it to create our own size pattern. It has the grading from size 4 to 18. I saw a girl with a skirt which reminds me of a vintage skirt. It had four small pleats (knife pleats) in the back with a placket above the pleats. I want to make a v yoke in the front with three buttons coming down the front of the yoke on each side (going down towards the v point). I am sorry I cannot draw a picture to show . I also want to put two buttons on opposite sides of the placket in back. The problem I am having is that the pattern we bought only has one dart in the front and back. I want to create two darts for the front and back. I was wondering if I can get away with using a one dart to create this style? If not, I measured from the front skirt from the 16 grade to the first dart line, 5 1/4″. I then measured from the other dart line to the centre front line 4 3/4″. On the back skirt, I measured from the 16 size line to the first dart line 4 1/4″ and from the second dart line to the centre back 16 size line 4 1/2. I am not sure how to create the two darts from that.. Can anyone help me with this?
I have tried looking in Armstrong’s book but have not come across this problem.
Thanks for any input you can come up with.
