I am desperately looking for a 12 gore skirt pattern which was fashionable in a past era. I want to embroider on one so it has to be the 12 gores . Does anyone know of such a pattern or where I could find one please?

Sewco, try posting this question under the forum, 'Patterns and Notions.' I bet you'll get lots of responses.

Good Luck!

Here are some instructions for a gored skirt with lots of words, some math, and no pictures.

Vonnevo reviewed a gored skirt pattern -- can't recall how many panels but it is worth a look. I think it was a Vogue pattern.

That's a good pattern for 10 gores. You could probably use 12 and still be okay if your fabric is drapey.

I was going to suggest just drafting your own.

Use your hip measurement divided by 12 (plus seam allowances) for the width of the top of each gore. {This is for an elastic waist; if you want a zippered/fitted waist/hip area, then things get slightly more complicated: use your waist measurement and be sure the angle of each gore will accommodate your hips/tummy.}

Figure out how full you want the bottom of each panel at the hem and also how long your skirt will be (add hem allowance and waistband foldover, if applicable.) Will your pattern be on grain or on bias? Mark the grainline on your pattern piece.

Cut out 12 of your pattern pieces. Sew them together. Add the elastic and the hem.

Somewhere in there I think you'll want to add your embroidery... ;)

Good luck!

I loved gored skirts with a passion and of late I have not seen any 12 gored skirt patterns (that does not mean that they don't exist though). If you really want 12 gores it might be easier to follow the above link and make your own.

Would it be possible to divide your embroidery over a different number of gores e.g. on a six gore skirt you would do the embroidery that went over two gores (on a 12 gore skirt) on just one gore?

Here are some gored skirt patterns to whet your appetite.

Vogue 7767 OOP 20 gore skirt

Edwardian 9 gored skirt
The skirt is the second last pattern on this page so just keep on scrolling down. I absolutely love this pattern and make it 3/4 length for casual day to day wear or ankle length for something a little dressier. It works in just about any fabric, I have used everything from lightweight denim through to a heavier cotton brocade (which is actually a furnishing fabric). The pattern although it has regular pattern sizing is still an old pattern so you may need to adjust below the waist as the pattern pieces do narrow about 2cm below the waistline. I just "straightened" out the lines a little to make it fit a modern (i.e. uncorseted) waistline. A very easy alteration, even for a beginner like me.

Simplicity 4044

Folkwear #209 and #232
Folkwear #209 is a turn of the century five gore skirt and #232 is a six gore skirt.

Butterick 3418

Butterick 3418 is a seven gore skirt, I have made B3418 and it does run big (I made view AB) so make a muslin if you choose this pattern. I would suggest making at least one size smaller and then work from there. The skirt is very full so I removed the "excess" to make it a more smooth A line. You can get the full look that you see in the drawing but you would have to wear petticoats under the skirt to achieve this. I just used the many seams to take out the excess and have a nice smooth line from waist to ankle. One of my favourite winter skirts, looks great when made out of wool, wool cashmere or heavy weight denim (I think I used a 12 oz denim).

So no 12 gore skirts in my collection but some suggestions for four, five, six, seven, nine and 20.

Hths.
