Welcome to a new pattern making class, in today’s class, I am going to teach you how to make an asymmetrical skirt.
As you already know from previous classes when we work with the pattern blocks we usually work in quarters since our body is usually symmetrical.
On the other hand, when we want our design to be different, we have to work in halfs.
So for today’s class, we are going to unfold the patterns and make a different design on each side of the front and back.
This class is a perfect exercise to create a fantasy hem, in my case, I have made a wavy hem but we could change this effect for another.
Another fantasy hem could be a spiked hem or a cornered hem, the techniques to make these hems are the same ones you will learn in today’s class.
Off camera, I have added a straight waistband to finish off this design.
As always, I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to make the same skirt that I have made, but remember that you can change them to suit your personal taste or that of your client.
As this asymmetrical skirt is quite short it is not necessary to make a slit but consider adding one if you are going to make it longer.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email through your user account, in the support section.
Send your exercises
The best way to learn industrial pattern making is by practising, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make this asymmetrical skirt.
You can send me these patterns in real size or half scale.
Please try to send me photos where the patterns and their annotations can be seen clearly and precisely so that I can send you better comments.
