Looks very pretty! I don't know if my hips can take any extra ruches, though...
Hi Julie. I think these styles can sometimes be a surprise in how flattering they are. Mind you there are so many choices that have the more flattering diagonal lines. http://studiofaro-wellsuited.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/pattern-puzzle-tucked-drape-skirt.html :)
Hi Studiofaro,Do you need two pieces of the pattern to complete the garment? Or is there a center front fold?
Hi Gale. Thanks for dropping by. Yes the front is cut on the fold. I will edit the post to make that clear. Thx for letting me know. Are you making this style? I have a toile cut but it's not made it to the machine yet. :)
How can I make the side gathers appear to be behind the front ruffles.
Hi there. There is a large fold back behind the vertical gathers where the horizontal gathers meet (seam) at the CF. Hope that's clear. :) Let me know if have any questions.
Pretty, but with my aversion to garments that place too much fabric below the waist, giving even the flattest of abs a "gut" - I think this skirt would look better with a short-in-front asymmetrical hemline and the waterfall in the back. Big butts are huge now in fashion (I couldn't resist the pun... sorry! :) Plus, what wannabe princess wouldn't love a faux bustle?
Hi Rose, thx for dropping by the blog. The beauty with these pattern instructions is you can tailor them to your own taste when you make the pattern. If you don't include the extra fabric for the CF waist ruching you could leave it flat over the stomach. Let me know if you have any questions about cutting this pattern. :)
