What I am looking for is a full length voluminous skirt to be teamed up with printed blouse. I don’t have availability of ready-made patterns in India. So I am stuck with finding inspirations and figuring out the pattern myself. After hunting around the internet for quite a while I have zeroed on the following options:
Double circle skirt: This blog also has a tutorial on how to draft this skirt. But of course the one I am looking to make will be full length skirt.
Box Pleated Full Skirt
Dirndl Skirt: Basically a piece of rectangular fabric gathered at the waist. With rich stiffer fabrics we can aim for a voluminous lehenga. Gertie’s sewing blog has a wonderful wonderful tutorial for this skirt which I intend to refer.
These are the possible patterns which I will be drafting and try muslin fitting for the drape and volume.
