Plaid skirt with drape


Let's draft the pattern for this trendy skirt from Miu Miu.

The silhouette is very interesting since the upper part is draped with pleats and the lower part has a cowl shape. Plus, the plaid fabric gives an even cooler effect!

To draft the pattern, start from a basic skirt. You can find here our FREE pre-course on drafting the perfect skirt if you want.

Step 1

Start from a copy of full front, with full length.

Draw the horizontal slash line at knee and separate top and bottom pieces.

Step 2

On upper part, draw some slash lines from right side seam to left one a bit lower.

Try to distribute lines evenly as these are the points where you have pleats. Extend dart apex if needed – both dart apexes should reach a slash line.

Step 3

Cut through all lines from right side seam to left one, then close waist darts and open an even amount (4 to 8cm) in each slash line.
