Drawstring asymmetrical skirt


Let's draft together the pattern of this skirt.

Start from a basic block with full front for the asymmetrical style.

Step 1

Draw on the front the drawstring/gathering line slightly slanted.

On both front and back, reduce the same amount from each side seam at the hem for a more fitted style.

On the front only, draw some evenly spaced slash lines to open the volume to be gathered.

Step 2

Cut through the slash lines and open few cm in each space (depending on the volume you want to get and on the fabric you will be using it- the softer and more drapey it is the more you can open).

Mind for the two halves to have the same final measurement as they will be stitched together.

Step 3

Trace the separate pieces: center back, left front, right front.
