# How to properly build a pattern of a pencil skirt, detailed photos with patterns

Skirt pencil is a perfect solution not only forwomen who want to proactivate graceful forms, but also in order to hide the excessive completeness. Due to the absence of folds and assemblies, the pencil skirt tightly fits the figure, smoothly for getting along to the bottom. The length of the pencil skirt may be different - from short to midi (just below the knee). If you want to sew a long pencil skirt you need to make a cut behind, otherwise, in a long skirt the pencil will be difficult to walk. Sew a skirt pencil most-quite simply. In order to sew a skirt a pencil, it is necessary to build a pattern-base of a straight skirt according to your own standards. Skirt pencil pattern Pencil skirt pattern 1. To draw a drawing of a straight line patternskirts (Figure 1), you need to remove the following measurements: 1. The length of the skirt is 72 cm2. Semicircle of the waist ......... ..36 cm.3. Semicircle thighs ......... 50 cm. Skirt pencil: pattern buildingWe draw rectangle ABCD. Width of skirt pencil. The lines of the rectangle AB and DC are 51 centimeters (semicircular hips by measure plus one centimeter for all sizes): 50 + 1 = 51. The length of the skirt is a pencil. The lines of the rectangle AD and BC are equal to 72 centimeters (the length of the skirt by the measure). The line of the side of the skirt is a pencil. From point A to the right, lay 1/2 of the segment AB and put the point T. From point T down we lower the perpendicular to the intersection with the line DC. The line of the hips of the skirt is a pencil. From the points A, T, B, we lay down 20-22 centimeters down, we put the points A, A, and A2 and connect them with a dashed line. The calculation of the depth of the darts on the waist line of the pencil skirt. We determine the difference between the semicircle of the hips by the measure (together with the addition) and waist circumference by the measure with the addition of one cm: 51-37 = 14. The difference is equal to fourteen centimeters. In the side dash remove 7 centimeters (half the difference), in the front-three centimeters and in the back-four centimeters (the remainder of the difference). The bony tuck of a skirt. The lateral tuck is equal to seven centimeters. From point T to the right and to the left we postpone for 3.5 centimeters (half of the depth of the side tuck): 7: 2 = 3.5. From the points 3.5 up we lay off one centimeter each. Point 1 is connected by dashed lines to point A1, we divide them in half and from the points of division left to right and right to the left, we lay off 0.5 centimeters. We draw the line on the left through the points 1, 0.5, M1, the line on the right - through the points 1, 0.5, M1. Front tuck of skirt. The depth of the front dart is three centimeters. From the line of the side to the right, overlap five to six centimeters, hold the perpendicular down, the length of the front tuck is nine to ten centimeters. From the point of intersection of the perpendicular with the waist line to the right and to the left, we lay 1.5 centimeters (half the depth of the front dart) 3: 2 = 1.5. The lower end of the dart is taken away at 0, 5 centimeters to the side seam. The back dart of the skirt. The depth of the back dart is four centimeters. AT divide in half and from the point of division to the left and to the right we postpone two centimeters. The length of the back dart is twelve to thirteen centimeters. The waist line of the back half of the skirt. Point 1 is connected to point 2 (tuck). The line of the waist is the front half of the skirt. Point 1 is connected to the point 1.5 (darts). If the difference between the semicircle of the hips by the measure with the increase and semicircle of the waist by the measure with an increase of more than fourteen centimeters, on the back half of the skirt we make 2 darts. The first is at a distance of five to seven centimeters from the middle of the back, the solution of the dart is three to four centimeters, the length is thirteen to fifteen centimeters. The remaining distance is divided in half, the solution of the second dart is two to three centimeters, the length is equal to twelve to thirteen centimeters. After the construction of the basic pattern of the pencil skirt, it is necessary to determine the length of the skirt. For a skirt, a pencil about 60 cm long from the side line and back of the skirt, 2-2.5 centimeters (for tapering) and from the hip line to draw straight lines. If the length of your pencil skirt is about 40 cm, then the pencil skirt must be additionally cut by one to two centimeters downwards along the side line. IMPORTANT! If you have a "riding breeches" zone, you need to check the pattern size by ten centimeters below the hip line. If necessary, lower the upper points of the red lines of construction ten centimeters below the hip line.
