But as for me, I trust [confidently] in You and Your greatness, O Lord;
I said, “You are my God.” Psalm 31:14 (amp)
Thank you so much for all the love and comments that I received for my Sew the Look: Asymmetric Pencil Skirt. If you missed it you can catch up here. Pattern Hacking is a new term for me but as I began delving into the world of sewing blogs I realized that it is a term used to describe how to alter a pattern in order to create another design. Actually in fashion school that is all we learned how to do. You start with what’s called a sloper or block and you manipulate the pattern into the design that your creating.
For this particular project, I used Simplicity 8394 because it was very similar to the skirt that I wanted to make and I knew I could make it with very few pattern adjustments. However, the great thing about this skirt project is that you can make it using a well fitting pencil skirt pattern as well.
For today’s post I created a step by step illustrated tutorial for how to draft a pattern for your very own version of this project. You can use simplicity 8394 if you like, but for this tutorial I show you how to make the pattern using a pencil skirt. Below is an image of what the illustrated tutorial looks like. You can also download the pdf copy of the asymmetric skirt pattern hack tutorial here.
Please note that this is a patterning tutorial and not a sewing tutorial. It assumes that you have previous sewing knowledge and that you are familiar with using sewing patterns.
Well thats all for now! Until next time….
