If you read my Upcoming challenges post you may wonder where this skirt comes from…and you would be totally right.
I did not plan to make it…except I was planning to make an a-line skirt and realised none of the previously drafted patterns were dartless. So, I drafted a new one from scratch….and used this cheap denim I had in my stash since last year (remember my jeans?)
Since then I became obsessed with removing darts and found several other methods…that I will list here because I know that deep down you always wanted to know too
Laura Marsh’s technique: never seen before. Must read
Carolyn’s technique: great for lace
Another view on slashing and spreading
For the zipper I used the technique Nancy Zieman explains in Sewing A-Z. The woman knows her stuff!
By the way, if you are interested in sewing techniques, you should follow my Pinterest board (yes, I am back using it after they changed their T&Cs)…and if you have any to share, let me know…I am a bit of a geek like that.
Wishing you a great week
