To sew a skirt of gypsy style, not at allbe sure to have a great experience in cutting and sewing. Here it is enough to master the key principles of the sewing process: how to take measurements, build a pattern, make a cut of fabric and directly sew the product itself. As the main material, we recommend using light, "flying" material, but at the same time not transparent. The fabric should be bright, which will emphasize its style affiliation. In this article, we will detail how to sew a gypsy skirt with your own hands, using a pattern and photo. Preparatory stage. As a fabric, you can choose a satin, silk material or polyester. However, if desired, it is possible to use cotton fabric. It is important to take into account the large volume of the future product. The color solution of the skirt remains completely at the mercy of your taste. You can choose monotonous or colorful, colorful material. The linen should be 4 times larger than the length of the finished product. As a basis, we will use the skirt-sun. In addition, you will need: parchment paper for patterning; measuring tape; scissors; pencil; non-woven fabric; thread; decor; ribbons made of satin fabric. Step-by-step description of the tailoring of the gypsy skirt There are 3 main stages in the process of creating such a skirt model. First step. We need to take measurements. For this we measure the circumference of the hips and waist. Choose the desired length of the product. After the measurements in centimeters are received, you can proceed to the construction of the very pattern of the gypsy skirt. This stage is not as complicated as it might seem at first. To create a template, parchment paper or tracing paper is best. To the measured measures of hips wrap it is necessary to add five centimeters. The result is a circle. The drawing itself is made from two halves-semicircles. You can use the ready-made pattern of the skirt-the sun. Second phase. We pass directly to the very cut. The very same fabric, after how to cut, you need to wash. When you start to cut the material, do not forget about the allowances on the seams (about one centimeter). To create frills on the hem of the skirt, you need to stock up a ribbon of fabric that will be 2 times longer than the width of the bottom of the product itself. It is necessary to make a pattern of a belt, two cloths and frills of a skirt. Remember about the allowance of a half centimeter on the frill to bend the bottom. The third stage. Go to the very tailoring of the product. We fold the parts of the panel with faces. We sew the side seams with a thread of contrasting color. After that we process with a machine seam. Then delete the contrast mark. The edges of the seams are treated with an overlock and ironed with an iron. Overlock can be replaced with a seam "zig-zag". Similarly, we process the rim of the frill. Fold the bottom and stitch it. Next, making a selection of frills, we take it to the hem of the product. Also I want to note that such a skirt model will look good on the wide hips. The belt of the product should be cut in the form of a rectangle, which should be duplicated with a nonwoven fabric. Next, we put a cloth in the belt and process it with a machine stitch. Remember that you need a small gap to pass through the gum. It is best to use a wide elastic band with great elasticity. After that, you should close this gap with a seam. If your product will have a solid color, then we advise you to make a belt from contrasting fabric. You can decorate the skirt with ribbons fromsatin fabric of bright color. If there is a desire, you can use the applique. In the case where you need a very fluffy gypsy skirt, you can sew it from several layers of fabric material. It is important that the product has a povyubnik. But its presence is more important for those who create this model for dance classes. The finished product should be washed and processed with an iron. To wear such a model skirt is better in a tight-fitting blouse. But shoes should be on a flat sole. Jewelry of this image will be traditional gypsy earrings and bracelets. A gypsy-style skirt will add variety to your wardrobe, making it even more saturated, will allow you to look attractive and original.
