The last time we talked about the different ways we can cut our pieces skirts: http://valisimofashions.com/secret-behind-pieces-skirts/ but today we want to take it a step further by looking at how we can cut our wrapped pieces skirt…
In our last class about ways to cut pieces skirt we identified 3 major ways, Vertical method, Horizontal method and Diagonal method .
Principle of Wrap Designs
Principles behind cutting wrapped design is you must have 3 blocks. Regular skirts have 2 front and back block. But for wraps 2 front blocks.the and 1 back block.
Divide your waist and measurement into the number of pieces you want .eg waist 36 ÷ 6 = 6 (+1 for seam allowance ) =7
Hip 40÷6 = 6.6 (+1 for seam allowance) = 7.6
Fold your panels into the number of pieces you want by the full length of your skirt . Your folds can be 6 or more than 6.
Mark on the folds your waist hip and knee measurements. 7 for waist 7.6 for hip using my above divition
This should cover your front and back block like regular skirts after joining
1,2,3 = Inside front
4,5,6 = Back
7,8,9 = Front
Follow the steps in each picture to get the blouse.
This is how you caution this style using your own measurements. If you have problems with translating you measurement into design then you should get the Sewing Made easy DVD from Valisimo Fashions. All you need to understand the process is carefully detailed in the DVD by me.
