Very beautiful. I love the fabric and the fact that you drafted it yourself.

Looks like you achieved a perfect fit with your drafting technique, and the fabric is gorgeous. Your tutorial is very clear and well-written -- I might try it.

Thanks so much, ladies! I didn't know if the tute would work because I lack many terms... I really appreciate that you took the time to look!

Madhatter, I have done the very same thing and this is one of my favourites. Funny thing though, no two skirts are the same!

Great skirt and a great tutorial, as well. (Love Betty. :o) As I was looking at the two skirt pieces from a bird's eye view, I even think it would be a neat tapered skirt, as opposed to A-line, by just cutting each side right down to the hem, following the other half's overlapping line(if you know what I mean). I know Burda usually tapers their straight skirts slightly, and it makes for a very flattering line. 'Course, I suppose it could get awfully pegged, too. :o) Still, I was intrigued by the shape as I looked at your drawings. Thanks for taking the time to put a great tutorial out there.

of course you're right, annette. you could also draft a tapered skirt, a straight one or a circle skirt - that completely depends on your needs and wishes. though for a tapered skirt you wouldn't take in 5 cm on each drafted side (a total of 20 cm around) without having a slit somewhere ;)
