Fashion on the model of skirts is changing, but there is a constant classic that is always in trend. Strict skirts, pencil skirts and pleated skirts are still relevant today. Only the fashion changes in length, it skips now above the knee, now below.
Now in fashion skirts with bantovye folds, which reach approximately the middle of the calf. For sewing products and use the thinnest lightweight fabrics, and dense, which perfectly keep their shape.
This model emphasizes a thin waist and looks great on tall and small women. It is well combined with shoes on a heel and on a flat sole. Depending on the fabric from which the product is sewn, you can wear a skirt even with moccasins.
Creation of the pattern of skirts with pleats
Having a pair of skirts with folds of different colors, you can create several additional images. Patterns of skirts with bantovye folds are built quite simply. For such a model does not require the construction of the drawing, but for the first time you can practice on paper to understand how to properly draw and lay the folds. The fabric can be shifted in the process of work, and folds will be of different widths. If you practice initially on paper, it will be easier to deal with the cloth. To sew a skirt with bantovye folds, one evening is enough.
Fabric selection and calculation
First you need to buy a cloth. For summer it is worth choosing thin light fabrics. In the fall fit dense fabric, you can with the addition of wool. Also consider your body size. For lush hips, it’s not worth picking up very dense fabrics, they will add even more volume.
Next is to determine the length of the product and buy two lengths of fabric plus stock for the belt. If the length of the product is 1 meter, then you need to buy 2 meters of fabric + 10 cm for the belt, also 1 cm will go for sewing on the belt and 5 cm for the fold of the bottom. Total 2 m 16 cm.
Auxiliary stages for beginners
In order not to be mistaken with the calculations and not to redo the work, it is better to make a pattern on tracing paper, it is much easier to mark all the calculations on it. Such a blank can be used not only once, but for different fabrics and with different lengths.
If there is confidence in their actions, you can do everything at once on the fabric. To build a drawing you need to have two measurements. The first is the length, and the second is the waist circumference (OT). The first measure was used when calculating the fabric for the product, i.e. its length. The second measure is needed to calculate the width of the fabric. If OT = 70 cm, then the width of the fabric should be three times as large, this additional fabric will be folded. Also do not forget about seam allowances.
So (70 * 3) +6 cm (1.5 cm side seams) = 216 cm.
Calculation of folds
The main element in such a skirt is a bow fold. How to calculate the number of folds? It is worth remembering that the folds can be of different widths, small and large. Take a centimeter tape or a ruler and see which width suits you visually. Take, for example, a fold 7 cm wide.
70 (FROM): 7 (fold width) = 10 (number of folds). In this model there will be 10 folds. 5 on the front panel and 5 on the back.
Working with cloth
It is advisable to write down the basic data in order not to confuse anything, let it be in front of your eyes.
Patterns of skirts with bantovye folds are transferred to the material from tracing paper or are drawn with tailor's chalk on the seamy side of the fabric. Before we open the matter need to iron. 10 cm can be immediately cut to a belt and glued with a dulerin, let it lie aside.
But first, cut the fabric into two cuts of 1.6 m and fold their front sides to edge to edge. Edges can be immediately cut, they do not go to work. The width of the skirt turned out to be 216 cm in total, divide it by 2.
216: 2 = 108 (the length of one panel). From the cut edge, you need to put off 108 cm and hold at an angle of 90 degrees down. Get two pieces of 1.08 x 1.60.
Assembly of parts
For convenience, the edges can be cleaved with pins, so that the fabric does not go under the foot of the machine, and stitch the edges of the product. On the one hand, do not sew up to the edge, but leave 18-20 cm for zipper insertion. Stitched side edges should be processed on the overlock so that the fabric does not fall out. If there is no overlock, you can do a zigzag. Stitches to iron through the ironing.
Next, you need to process the bottom, 2.5 cm * 2 cloth hall at the bottom. So it takes 5 cm, which were originally laid on the hem of the bottom, 1 m 1 cm remains. Iron the bottom, ironing is done through the iron so that there is no gloss on the fabric.
Folds - the most crucial moment
Correctly laid folds - a guarantee of success.
Half of the work has already been done, a little more - and the fluffy skirt, made with our own hands, will be ready. Most importantly, slowly go through this stage so that the folds are even, the whole look of the product depends on it.
We decided that the width of one fold was 7 cm. In order to form it correctly, it would take three times more fabric.
7 * 3 = 21 cm is the amount of fabric that will go into one fold. How to lay a ribbon fold? It is necessary to mark the area of 21 cm by 7 cm. There will be 3 such areas. The middle section - 7 cm - will come to the fore. Two side parts of 7 cm divided by 2, it turns out 3.5 - this is the depth of the folds. In the same way the other folds are formed. Each bend must be fixed with pins.
The final stages in tailoring a skirt with bantovy folds
The next step will be sewing a zipper, you can use a secret or normal.
Go to the belt. There are different patterns of skirts with bantovye folds. There are models when instead of a belt the yoke is cut, but such a product is more difficult to sew. In our version there will be a skirt with a usual belt, therefore we take the already prepared section glued by dublerin. FROM = 70, which means that the length of the belt should be 70 cm + 2 cm on the side seams + 3 cm for the button or button.
The length of the belt is 70 + 2 + 3 = 75. It is 5 cm wide. To attach it to the skirt, it will leave 1 cm on each side. The finished belt will be 4 cm wide.
To sew the edges of the belt from the seamy side, to turn out and smooth the belt from the front side, now you need to tie it to the skirt and pull the pins out. A little more work - and a fluffy skirt will be done with your own hands
When the belt is worn, you can make the last fitting and make sure that the product fits well on the figure.
We first fasten the belt from the wrong side, and then fasten the edge on the front side so that the seam looks even and neat.
The last detail is a button or button. If you stop on a small button, you will have to stitch also an eyelet for her.
Patterns skirts with bantovye folds easy to build, and sew a skirt too easy. But you can hear a lot of compliments about your appearance.
