Fine pink pleated fabric with flowers - 49,5 € / m
Fine pleated fabric in soft pink with flowers in black and ocher.
This fabric must be used in counter thread. The selvedge is used as the hem.
You can cut the fabric in two in the middle of the fabric, then you have two equal pieces of approximately 70cm. This is then the maximum length of the skirt. You need the amount twice for a long skirt. If you want to make it shorter, you have to cut off some fabric on the side of the waist (not on the side of the hem or the selvedge of the fabric).
To know how much fabric you need, at least take the width of your hips with extra fabric to gather. Of course, you determine how much yourself, but a guideline is 30 à 40% extra.
For example: I want a pleated skirt with a midi length (so max 70 cm). My hip width is 105cm. I take 35% extra, around 140 cm. You then divide that by two, so 70cm fabric.
