Ada wanted something special for her second class and had just bought a few meters of gilded cut cotton velvet. We already had a basic straight skirt and a couple of tunics, so we drafted this flared skirt from the sloper. With the extra yardage, we sewed it together and she made this matching gele!
It can be hard to get the flare positioned properly on these skirts – you want to start the flare just below the knee and then bring it out from there based on how full you want it to be.
We’ll be putting together a brief tutorial on it in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned!
