There is nothing new under the sky and everything new is well forgotten old. This truth has been heard more than once by each of us. And even more, he observed the repetition of history with his own eyes. It is believed that fashion is very changeable and can not keep up with it. But if you track trend models over several decades, then it is quite possible to notice coincidences. A vivid example of this is the second life presented by the "Fashionable Sentence" to a sumptuous skirt-sun in a fold, in which glamorous divas of the 60s shone. Today, this thing is again at the peak of its popularity, one can say that it is enjoying a minute of glory again. Therefore, it's time to settle the skirt in the fold in your wardrobe. Moreover, it is easy and simple to sew it yourself.

This article will discuss how the pattern of skirts in the fold is built and about the calculation of the material for such a model. Also will be considered the most fashionable options this season.

The choice of style and material

If we talk about the trend skirt in the fold, then immediately you need to exclude small pleats. Now it is not relevant. But wide bow or one-sided folds - these are the models that should be paid attention to. The length of this product can be midi and mini.

The pattern of the skirts in the fold is built quite simply, the main thing here is to arm yourself with a calculator and correctly calculate the necessary piece of canvas. But which fabric to choose for the product? The main requirement that is put forward to the material for such a thing is rigidity so that the fabric holds its shape well. Of course, silk and chiffon can be folded, but they will not look as impressive as caton, flax or brocade. A skirt with cross-folds, the pattern of which will be discussed below, can be an excellent bottom for an elegant dress in the style of the 60s. But for this you need to pick a stiff, protruding fabric to create the desired silhouette.

The color of the canvas is a matter of taste, and there are no rules here. It can be plain canvas, cell, floral motifs and abstraction with all the colors of the rainbow. The main thing is to correctly combine the motley bottom with a calmer top.

Building a pattern

Pattern skirts in the fold of a straight piece of fabric can be built immediately on the canvas. But if this is a sun or half-sun model, then you will need to make a template from an auxiliary material.

In order to make the workpiece, you need to measure the waist. Hips are not measured for the simple reason that this girth will easily fit into the circumference of the skirt, which will increase due to the folds. But if the figure is non-standard or folds are not laid full, but only half the width, then taking measurements of the hips is necessary.

Calculation for a straight skirt pleated

How is a straight pleated skirt built? The pattern of such a model is immediately marked on the canvas. On the edge of the canvas mark the length of the skirt + allowances for the seam of the belt attachment and hemming of the bottom. Depending on the waist size, two or three such lengths may be required. It remains only to calculate the width of the fold. To do this, the waist should be divided into the desired number of folds. Or, on the contrary, based on the number, calculate the width.

In an economical version, the pattern of pleated skirts can be lined up with incomplete laying. From this type of product will not suffer, but less material is required. In this embodiment, you need to take not three girth, but two or two and a half.

Calculation of bantovy folds

The rule of multiplying the waist volume by 3 also works here. However, the pattern of the skirt with bow pleats is constructed a little differently. Fabric for a straight model is also cut in stripes. The length is deposited on the armhole, and on the top and bottom of the strip are made allowances for processing. Pattern skirts with bantovye folds can also be with incomplete laying. Accordingly, the volume of the product will depend not only on the width of the fold, but also on its depth. Ideally, the markup consists of fold width marks, a bend mark, a depth start mark, a full depth mark, and a second bend mark.

Calculation and construction of the sun model

How is the calculation of fabric for the skirt sun with pleats? The pattern of the standard version assumes that the canvas needs to be folded in four, retreat from an angle of 1/6 of the waist circumference and mark the waistline at that distance. After that, the required length is already receding from this line and hem lines are marked. Pattern skirts in the folds of the model the sun is cut according to the same principle. There is nothing difficult to build. It should be only 1/6 of the waist volume multiplied by 3, so that you can lay folds.

It should be noted that with this cutting the width of the fabric 1.5 m is not enough to fold the cloth four times. And so you need to make a skirt of several parts. At the same time during cutting it is necessary to make allowances for connecting seams.

Skirt assembly

After marking all the folds are smoothed out and charted. After a zipper is sewn into one of the seams. A belt is sewn along the waistline in the form of a narrow band folded in half. Next, the bottom of the product is processed. It can be simply doubled up and scribed, or it can be processed on the overlock, smoothed out and laid the line.

On the belt you will need to make a loop and sew a button. Or use as a fastener hook or sewing button. As a result, the work will turn out featuring a pleated skirt. The pattern of this product is so simple that even the most inexperienced novice can handle sewing. Therefore, away all doubts! It's time to indulge yourself with new clothes made by yourself!
