Well, after making my 5th iteration of my SWAP, due to moving my Motorcycle Jacket over to be my bridging piece, I was going to make this skirt in matching denim to the Denim Motorcycle outfit, but much to my dismay, Fabric.Com ran out and has been out since last year. I'm not hopeful of their re-stocking, so I made iteration #6, and made Black Denim skirt, which matches the jacket, and then went back to the older iteration of the Butterfly Goth top to have a black velvet bodice, so now it ties to the black skirt, So a little shifting and we're okay again.
This is the XOX Skirt from a tute I found from Weekend Designer. XOX Skirt Tutorial The tute is not a tutorial for the skirt pictured on the website. You do not get that skirt from following that tute. I was however able to figure out about how to make the ruffles the way they show on the pictured skirt - on the outside, not on the inside.
So basically here is the layout as the tute directions call for:
So I start out by drawing out the diagram onto the back of the fabric, after making my calculations according to the directions. Hips + 2 1/2 divided by 2, rounding up if you like. Then length of skirt + 2 divided by 3.
