Skirt with cutout and flounce


Today's tutorial is about this mini skirt. It features interesting details like cut-outs and flounce.

You can sew it in a plaid as this one or in any woolen fabric adding lining, or in lighter fabric for a summer look.

Start from a basic skirt with darts and small wearing ease (we suggest 2cm on waist circumference and 2cm on hip one).

Step 1

Trace a copy of back and front separate.

Shorten both pieces to mid thigh.

Step 2

On both back and front draw the slash lines as you see in the image:

  • the first one starts in center and is slanted upward toward side seam – it crosses the dart on back and dart apex on front
  • the second one starts from the outer section of the first and is slanted downward to side seam
  • the third one is parallel to the first one and intersects the second

(it’s harder to explain than to draw them!)
