I hope you are done with the looks inspired by the team challenge because well, they were designing for the new hot trends this up coming fall and the designers were very inspiring so here is yet another look inspired by the Team Military Lace.
It’s a sailor style skirt with a lace front and military details
Complete with ruffled side panels, and gold buttonsYou will need:
- Fabric (I used jersey knit for this one but you can use what ever you like)
Step 1: To make the pattern it is super easy you can easily adjust this for any size. (later I will do a tutorial on how to put in a zipper and darts if you don’t want elastic for an adult) Measure around the widest part of the model (typically around the butt) divide that in half and then in half again. For my model this was 20 inches and so my final measurement was 5 inches. Then cut a rectangle 5 inches wide and as long as you want the skirt to be. So for my model this was 8 inches. Then you will cut out a rectangle from one side you can make this rectangle as big as you want really it will just affect how big the side panels end up and how small the sailor style front is. (save the rectangle you cut out that will be the pattern piece for the side panel) Then cut a second rectangle that is 1 inch wider and 2 inches taller than your first rectangle this will be the back piece. (I cut it at a slight angle so the skirt would flair just a little you don’t have to)
