How many yards of fabric did you use for the skirt?

To calculate the yardage I used this guide....


I used a 60 inch wide poly crepe de chine. Polyester will hold the pleats much better than a natural fiber.

I unfortunately don't have a progress photo of the pattern I used because I just drafted it directly on the fabric, however I will at a later time draw a small scale version to show you. Hope this helps.

If you're short, you can use this amazing super wide quilt backing fabric in cotton. It's 90cm-180cm wide I think (I forget which). I was able to use the pattern above without having to make it in multiple pieces. It's also inexpensive and can be dyed, pleated, and broomsticked.

.

Where did you get this fabric?

Hi all, just joining in this thread while I look for fabric and other stuff for my own build. I’ll start my own thread eventually. There’s so much great info here, I’m sure I’ll be referring to it frequently.

I’m also wondering how you figure how big to make the waist circle to allow for pleats. I mean, I know how to do the waist for a regular circle skirt, but is there a formula to tell you how much bigger you need to cut it so the waist will fit after pleating?

Edited to add: After discussing it w/ some RL friends, I think broomsticking the fabric might end up being my solution.

I didn’t know if you had found anything to use for your scarf-style tabard, but I found this gauzy stuff on clearance at Walmart. It’s cotton and I think the texture may work well.

The texture isn't that bad, though it lacks depth. I'd still recommend a piqué weaved fabric instead. Smile

Nice color, but I'd find a large piqué weave instead of a small one. Smile Something that really shows off the 3D effect of a piqué weave.
