Welcome to this new creative pattern making class, in today’s class we are going to learn how to make the Daisy Skirt.
I have given it this name because it has always reminded me of the flower but it is a skirt with a structured and controlled flare.
This skirt is what professionals call a 3D skirt because it has an internal structure that makes the fabric move away from the body creating its own shape.
Remember that creative pattern making is more advanced than industrial pattern making, so if you are a beginner, I recommend that you look at the industrial pattern making classes before attempting this one.
In today’s class, you will learn how to make the pattern and how to sew this skirt. The video of this class is divided into chapters to make it easier for you to follow.
As you have seen we have used net to help us create this structure but as I explain in the class, we can also use canvas fabric, the same you would use for jackets.
If you want to learn how to pivot the dart technique that I used for this class, I teach it in depth in the A-Line class.
Remember that precision is very important for pattern making, so take your time. If you need to, tack your fabric and use pins.
For this skirt, I have added a waistband to clean the waist seam. You can see how I do it in the straight waistband class.
If you have any questions about this class, you can send me an email through your user account in the support section.

The best way to learn is to do it yourself so in today’s class. For me to review your work, I am going to need you to send me pictures of both the pattern and the sewn toile.
So that I can give you better feedback, please try to send me different photographs of both the pattern making and the sewing process.
