|Manning Cartell Summer 10/11 - Compulsive Sketcher|
So there was this skirt I made last week for my friend Clara. It's inspired by a Manning Cartell creation I saw in a magazine somewhere however when I went on their website, I couldn't find any pictures of the same skirt! The picture above is in a similar print. Isn't it gorgeous?
You can see pictures of the skirt (and Clara) here: http://jltfk.blogspot.com/2011/04/mini-tutorial-series-continued-manning.html. Originally I made it for the hips, but when she tried it on she wanted it for her waist. So the pictures show a bit of alteration at the back made after the skirt was completed.
Here's how I made it. You'll need:
- 1 piece of lining material
- 1 piece of cloth for the outer layer (a pop print :D)
- An invisible zip, about 40cm long. I got mine at Lincraft.
As with previous tutorials, this one is divided into three sections- Making the pattern, cutting the cloth, and sewing. Please read all the instructions before starting :) And don't forget to click the Facebook 'like' button to share this project with all your crafty friends!
Divide this measurement by 4.
Add 2cm for ease.
Draw this line at the top as shown. I used a French Curve, but you can use a big plate if you want.
