In order to make a pattern of a straight skirtyou need to know three parameters: the waist (OT) volume, the thigh size (OB), and the desired length of the skirt. In order for the measurements to be accurate enough, you must strictly correctly measure your waist with a centimeter tape. In this case, the first two parameters in the calculations are used in the value "in half" and add to each up to 1 cm. In the diagram, these half sizes are usually denoted as SB, CT. The length of the skirt is calculated from the distance from the waist to the desired length. After obtaining this value, it is necessary to subtract 35-40 cm from it. Fabric for a straight skirt The least amount of all tissue will go toa classic pencil skirt, but for a skirt - a tulip for this pattern, more fabric is needed, while if there are skladochki, as well as additional details, for example, all kinds of pockets, then the consumption of cloth will increase. Do not forget that the length of the skirt is not the maximum value of the length of the fabric, by the measures of length it is necessary to add another 15-20 cm. If the volume of the hips exceeds 130 cm, then you will have to buy more fabric based on the fact that it will take "two lengths" and additional 15-20 see The process of pattern building 1. On a vertically arranged line that divides the skirt in half, you need to map the point T. The horizontal line, where this mark is located, you need to put the points equal to half the segments on each side of it. If you want, you can mark them out somehow. 2. From these points, construct vertical lines - these will be darts, for the front part the length of the darts is 10-12 cm, and on the back half - about 15 centimeters. 3. The next step is to draw the waistlines on the pattern, which will be skewed. . From the horizontal line of the waistline you need to measure 1.5 centimeters on the front half of the pattern and 1 cm from the edge of the rear half. Then you need to connect them to the point T. At the same time, you should try to make the lines slightly concave. 4. Construction of darts. The depth of these darts is 3 cm on the back half of the pattern and 2 cm on the front. For convenience, these numbers can be divided in half and set aside from the horizontal line of darts. And then connect the taps with the top. 5. Points T1 and T2. In order to find out their position and finish the pattern, it is necessary to perform calculations using the following formula: (Cb + Pb) - (Ct + Ft), where PB and FP are the 1 cm increment mentioned above. From the value of calculations subtract 5 cm is the sum of the darts and divide the remainder in half. On the pattern, put it on a horizontally placed waist line from the point T. 6. Then you just need to draw vertical lines equal to the selected length of your skirt. Small secrets This pattern is basic, but it is necessary to separately calculate the belt, pockets, which also require a certain expenditure of your fabric. Transferring the pattern to the fabric, leave on the seams about 1.4 centimeters on the top cut and 2-2.5 on the side on both sides. On the lower cut, add 3-5 cm, for bottom folding and length regulation. The front half is cut out on the fabric folded in half on the share line. The whole front should be integral. It is a good practice to sew first a "rough" version of a cheap fabric to understand where there are errors in measurements and calculations, to determine the length of the skirt. Naturally, this pattern is common, so that it becomes your own, it is necessary to take into account your features, which are revealed after numerous tests after the basting of the details. Do not rush to sew stitches on the machine, until all the "improvements" are completed.
