In the making: A skirt with a drag
For a school assignment we all had to make a skirt and take sewing patterns out of a pattern book. I don't think a lot of people know what that means.
Well, out of a pattern book (a magazine that has pictures of clothes and patterns of how to make those clothes) you can trace over a pattern on to a delicate piece of see-threw paper and cut it out. Then you needle it to a piece of cloth that you've cut out to approximately the same size as your pattern. This is briefly on how you use a pattern book and how you can eventually make a skirt, colbert, a pair of pants, jackets, shirts and more.
So this is what I sort of did at school to start making the skirt. It wasn't really a spectacular skirt so I decided to put a see-threw black cloth over it. Click "read more" to see the result of the actual skirt.
